The New York Mets announced Monday that they have signed veteran reliever Kyle Farnsworth to a Minor League contract with an invite to Spring Training. The Mets represent Farnsworth's eighth MLB team as the 38-year old enters his sixteenth MLB season. The hard-throwing righty has accumulated a 43-63 lifetime record with a 4.26 ERA and 945 strikeouts over 960.0 career innings pitched.

Farnsworth split the 2013 campaign with the Tampa Bay Rays and Pittsburgh Pirates, finishing strong with the playoff-bound Buccos with a 1-1 record and 1.04 ERA in nine appearances down the stretch. He comes to the Mets as a low-risk late-inning option, much like LaTroy Hawkins last season. The Mets got more than their money's worth out of Hawkins and in their endless pursuit of a good bargain, hope to get similar value out of their new addition in 2014.
