Mets complete sweep of hapless Nats

Carlos Gómez took the long way to the Mets, signing with them as a teenager, debuting in 2007 and playing for five other teams before making his way back to the organization on a Minor League deal this spring.

By that time, the Mets were nearly done stockpiling position-player depth in a way they hadn’t in years. Rajai Davis came to the team on a similar contract, taking 13 seasons of experience with him to the clubhouse in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Adeiny Hechavarria, like Gomez, was a spring signing. For new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen, the idea was to collect Major League veterans who could contribute should things go wrong.
