Mets sign Brandon Drury day after Francisco Lindor blockbuster

The Mets aren’t done making infield moves.

The team signed ex-Yankee Brandon Drury to a minor-league contract on Friday, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed.

Drury has spent the past three seasons with the Blue Jays, who designated him for assignment in September. Drury was hitting .152 with one RBI in 46 at-bats at the time of the decision.

Drury, 28, was traded by the Yankees to Toronto before the 2018 deadline as part of a deal that brought J.A. Happ to The Bronx.

Drury has connections to new Mets GM Jared Porter. Drury played for the Diamondbacks in 2017 in Porter’s first year as an assistant GM with the franchise.

The signing comes one day after the Mets landed star shortstop Francisco Lindor in a trade with the Indians.

Drury is primarily a third baseman, but has also played second base and shortstop in his seven-year career.
