The Mets signed Vinny Rottino to a minor league deal.  Rottino is a 31 y/o with just 26 MLB games under his belt but in joining the Mets he may actually have a chance to make the team.  The team hasn't had anyone as versatile as Rottino since Eli Marrero.

In the minors he logged 300 gms at catcher, 223 gms at 3B, 174 gms in LF, 164 gms at 1B, 80 in RF, 5 gms at 2B, 3 gms at SS and even pitched a game.  In six seasons in AAA offensively he's produced the following numbers; .293/ .360 / .433 / .793.

Between 2006-2008 with the Brewers he was called up for 18 games in which he hit .208 ( 24 AB) and played 3B/LF/RF/C.  Last year he was called up by the Marlins and appeared in eight games, hitting .167 while playing LF/RF.
