Mets sign outfielder Tommy Pham to 1-year contract

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Mets have signed veteran outfielder Tommy Pham to a one-year contract, adding to their busy offseason. Pham provides depth and a dangerous bat, giving New York a proven fourth outfielder and a right-handed option at designated hitter to complement lefty Daniel Vogelbach. The 34-year-old Pham spent last season with Cincinnati and Boston, batting .236 overall with 17 home runs, 63 RBIs and a .686 OPS. He scored 89 runs in 144 games. Pham made headlines in May when he was suspended for three games by Major League Baseball after he slapped San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson during warmups before a game because of a dispute about their fantasy football league.
