The Mets announced they have signed righthand pitchers Mitch Talbot and Daryl Thompson to minor league deals. They were both assigned to Triple-A Las Vegas.
Talbot, 29, pitched in the majors with Tampa Bay in 2008 and Cleveland in 2010-11, with a combined 5.30 ERA and 1.646 WHIP. He last pitched in the Miami Marlins organization, but only made three starts in the minors due to an elbow injury before they released him. Thompson, 28, was last with the independent Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. In four games in the majors with Cincinatti in 2008 and 20011, he has a 8.31 ERA and 2.192 WHIP.
