According to ESPNNewYork.com, the Mets have signed former Pirates shortstop Ronny Cedeno to be the team's back-up middle infielder for this upcoming season. The signing was rumored for a few weeks now but now something if official. The Mets also showed interest in veteran middle infielder Jack Wilson but by signing Cedeno, a Wilson move would be highly unlikely.

Cedeno signed a 1 year, $1.1 million deal.
