New York Mets, Ronny Cedeno Agree To Deal

5:21 PM ET: Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports the two sides have agreed to terms. The deal is pending a physical.

Players like Jose Reyes aren't easily replaceable, but the New York Mets will need to find someone who can be serviceable at shortstop for the immediate future. According to ESPN New York's Adam Rubin, the Mets are hoping free agent shortstop Ronny Cedeno can be that guy for them, as the two sides have reached a critical point in the negotiations.

Latest we've heard regarding the former Pirate shortstop Ronny Cedeno and the Mets comes from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal. Rosenthal says the two sides are close to a one-year deal worth between $1.1-$1.2 million.

Cedeno, 29 in February, hit .249/.297/.339 in 454 plate appearances last season for the Pirates. He's shown flashes of above-average defensive skills. Regardless, a one-year deal essentially at $1 million isn't by any means a bad signing, especially when we've seen multi-year contracts handed out like candy this offseason.
