Mets sign backup first baseman from Cuba

According to the New York Times the Mets have signed Cuban defector Michael Abreu. The first baseman was signed by the Red Sox last year but his contract was voided after the Red Sox discovered he was 5 years older than what they originally suspected. The 31 year old is one of Cuba's top power hitters who may fill in for the Mets at firstbase during Spring Training, with Delgado playing in the World Baseball Classic.
