Mets News: Mets sign RHP Kyle Farnsworth to a minor league deal


Mets News:


Looking for an experienced presence in their bullpen, the Mets on Monday signed 15-year veteran Kyle Farnsworth to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training.

The 37-year-old right-handed reliever pitched for the Rays and Pirates last season, appearing in 48 games. He had a 4.70 ERA over 38.1 innings. He struck out 28.

The Mets had been anxious to add a veteran in the bullpen, with Bobby Parnell, who is coming off neck surgery, the only proven reliever on the roster.

While the Mets are reportedly still looking for a high-end, late-inning arm, Farnsworth, 37, at least offers some experience with closing.

The ex-Yankee bust has saved 54 games in his career, including a career-high 25 for the Rays in 2011. But he has just four saves over the last two seasons.
