According to ESPN.com’s Adam Rubin, the Mets have signed right-hander reliever, Blaine Boyer to a minor league contract. As part of the deal , Boyer will get a invitation to the Mets big league camp during Spring training.
Boyer, 29, was non-tendered by the Diamondbacks last month. In 54 appearances, he posted a 3-2 record, a 4.26 ERA and 5 holds. I kinda like this signing by Sandy. It seems like there will be a open competition for the loogy role, and the more left handers brought to camp, in the less likely Oliver Perez will stick on the roster.
