The Mets have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with outfielder Gary Sheffield, Harold Reynolds reported this afternoon.

Sheffield, who was dropped by the Tigers on Tuesday, saw the Mets as the most appealing option because they offered him the most playing time. Sheffield will be a backup to Ryan Church in right field and Daniel Murphy in left. The Reds and Phillies had also expressed interest in him but could not offer him as much playing time.

Sheffield, 40,  wants to show he still has it in him to be a contributor for a Major League team and he will be given opportunities this season with the Mets. He is sitting on 499 career home runs. He is coming off a season where he hit .225 with 19 home runs and 57 RBIs.
