The Mets need an outfielder and Wednesday they signed one to add some depth to their organization — even if not to their major league roster.

With Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto ending their 2017 season in the disabled list, the Mets need another reliable bat in case Conforto, who had shoulder surgery, is not ready for the start of the season, as the Mets fear.

They are looking at major league players who can play a corner outfield position and first base, but Wednesday, the Mets signed Zach Borenstein to a minor league contract with an invitation to major league Spring Training camp in an attempt to shore up their ranks of outfielders in the organization.
