Mets invite Drew Gilbert to spring training

Former Vol Drew Gilbert has received a non-roster invitation from the Mets to spring training.

New York is scheduled to hold its first full squad workout on Feb. 19. New York’s first spring training game is slated for Feb. 24 against St. Louis in a split squad matchup.

Gilbert was traded from Houston to the Mets ahead of the Major League Baseball deadline on Aug. 1, 2023.

He was selected by Houston in the first-round (No. 28 overall) of the 2022 MLB draft.

Gilbert appeared in 58 games during his final season at Tennessee in 2022, totaling 11 home runs, 70 RBIs, 60 runs, 72 hits, 21 doubles, four triples, 33 walks and four stolen bases.
