Mets Sign RHP Jeff Stevens, 2B Corey Wimberley to Minor League Deals

According to Adam Rubin, Baseball America is reporting the following:

Stevens, 28, has appeared in 33 games with the Cubs since 2009 and has a 6.27 ERA in 37.1 innings pitched.

Wimberly, 28, played second base and left field for Pirates’ Triple-A team last season batting .238 in 173 at-bats. Before that he spent three seasons in the A’s system and four seasons in the Rockies system.

Additionally, according to Andy Martino, the Mets’ recent signing of infielder Omar Quintanilla does not impact their pursuit of Jack Wilson or another backup shortstop.
