Mets sign pitcher A.J. Griffin to minor league deal
The New York Mets have signed free-agent pitcher A.J. Griffin to a minor league deal that includes an invitation to spring training.
Griffin was released by the Texas Rangers after making 15 starts and 3 relief appearances for the team last season. The 30-year-old right-hander will compete for a spot in the back end of the Mets rotation but will likely serve as starting pitching depth while playing in Triple-A.
Griffin finished 2017 with a 5.94 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 61 strikeouts in 77 1/3 innings pitched.
