Port St. Lucie, FL (Sports Network) - The New York Mets have re-signed starting third baseman Ty Wigginton, along with three other players, to one- year contracts.
The 26-year-old Wigginton set franchise rookie records for hits (146), doubles (36), extra-base hits (53) and at-bats (573) in 2003.
The 6-foot, 200-pounder finished the season with 11 homers, 71 RBI and a .255 batting average in 156 games, and received a third-place vote in the National League Rookie of the Year balloting.
The Mets also inked infielders Craig Brazell and Aarom Baldiris, and righthanded pitcher Orber Moreno.
The 26-year-old Moreno, who was 0-0 with a 7.88 ERA in seven games for the Mets last season, is the only one of the three to have appeared in the majors.
