Mets sign catcher Raywilly Gomez to minor league contract

The New York Mets have added catcher Raywilly Gomez on a minor league contract and invited him to big league camp for spring training.

Gomez, 26, will join Nevin Ashley, Xorge Carrillo and Johnny Monell as non-roster catchers in major league camp.

Gomez hit .291 with one homer and 20 RBIs in 244 at-bats with Double-A Arkansas, a Los Angeles Angels affiliate, in 2015.

Gomez originally signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2007 as an undrafted free agent.

He also has seen minor league action at third base and second base during his career.
