Krauss signed a minor league contract with the Mets on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. Krauss saw major league action on three different teams last season, but couldn't manage to hit enough to stay on a roster. He'll get a shot at a spot in Mets spring training, and could stand a shot with little depth at first base behind Lucas Duda. However, he'll need to prove he can swing the bat at the major league level if he wants to stick.
The Tigers have given Marc Krauss his unconditional release on Saturday, the team announced. Krauss was sent down to Triple-A Toledo in July. He hit .141 with two home runs and eight RBI in 78 RBI this season.
