Mets Sign LHP Justin Hampson To Minor League Deal
According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, the Mets have signed lefthanded reliever Justin Hampson to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training.
Hampson, 30, hasn’t pitched in the major leagues since 2008 when he went 2-1 with a 2.93 ERA in 35 relief appearances with the Padres.
He was originally drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 28th round of the 1999 MLB Draft, and is 5-4 with a 3.38 ERA in 79 appearances in his career.
Looks like there will be plenty of southpaws competing to fill the vacancy left by Pedro Feliciano who will be getting left-handed batters out for the New York Yankees this season.
