The Mets have signed Adam Loewen to a minor league deal, Baseball America reports.


A former pitcher, the 27-year-old Loewen hit .306 with 17 homers and 85 RBIs in 520 at-bats at Triple-A Las Vegas while primarily manning right field last season. He also appeared in 14 games for the Toronto Blue Jays, hitting .188 with one homer.

He last appeared in the majors as a pitcher in 2008 with the Baltimore Orioles, when the southpaw went 0-2 with an 8.02 ERA in 21 1/3 innings.

Mets sign Capuano and Buchholz, DFA Igarashi


The Mets have signed pitchers Chris Capuano and Taylor Buchholz to one-year deals, tweets Mike Puma of the New York Post.

In order to make room for the two, the Mets have designated Ryota Igarashi for assignment, Puma tweets.

Capuano, 32, turned in a 3.95 ERA with 7.4 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 66 innings of work last season for the Brewers.  The left-hander missed the 2008 and '09 major league seasons after undergoing his second Tommy John surgery in May of 2008.  In 2010 he made nine starts with 15 relief appearances. Capuano was never a flamethrower but his 87.4 mph fastball last season was consistent with his career average.
