Adam Rubin reports that the Mets have re-signed infielder Omar Quintanilla to a minor league deal.

Quintanilla did a decent job last year when he was with the Mets, appearing in 29 games hitting .257 with a .350 OBP while playing ss/2b.

Caught in a roster crunch the Mets reluctantly traded  him to the Orioles for cash consideration.  He's no more then a AAAA player but provides decent middle infield depth.
