NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Mets have signed infielder-outfielder Matt Clark, a season after he hit 25 home runs while playing in Japan.

The Mets said Friday that they had signed the 27-year-old infielder and outfielder to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

Clark hit .238 with 70 RBIs in 132 games for the Chunichi Dragons last year.

Clark was drafted by San Diego in 2008. He hit 102 home runs in five minor league seasons before going to Japan. He bats left-handed and throws right-handed.
