The Mets signed Darren Bragg, a journeyman outfielder, as a free agent prior to the 2001 season. He made his Met debut on May 16, 2001; as the leadoff hitter he doubled in his first at bat. He would appear in 18 games for the Mets, playing all three outfield positions. But in the middle of June the Mets placed him on waivers and he was picked up by the Mets cross town rivals the New York Yankees. At the time he was hitting a respectable .263 with five RBIs. Four of his five RBIs came in one game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 18.
The Mets resigned Bragg following the season but released him before the season started. He played another three seasons in the majors.
While with the Mets Bragg wore number 56.
