The Mets decided to bring back a few of their own minor league free agents today and signed pitchers Nelson Figueroa and Adam Bostick, infielder Andy Green and catcher Rene Rivera.
The four of them will be invited to spring training as non-roster players.
Nelson Figueroa made six starts for the Mets in 2008 and had some good moments early on before sliding and being sent down to AAA. He worked 45.1 innings, surrendered 48 hits, 26 runs, 23 earned, with 26 walks and 36 strikeouts with the Mets. He went 4-7 with a 4.43 ERA in 20 games (16 starts) for New Orleans.
Adam Bostick went 2-2 with a 6.04 ERA with New Orleans last season and had his season cut short with knee surgery in May.
Andy Green hit .331 with 10 doubles, two triples, eight home runs and 28 RBI in 52 games with the Zephyrs.
Rene Rivera comes from the Seattle Mariners’ organization. Last year, he hit .231 in 38 games with Jacksonville and .271 in 38 contests for Las Vegas.
Yawn… Is the off season over yet?
