Mets sign Scott Patterson to minors deal

The Mets announced they have signed RHP Scott Patterson to a minor league contract.

Patterson, 33, last appeared in the Major Leagues in 2008 with the Padres – he allowed one hit in 3 1/3 innings over three appearances. He has appeared in just four Major League games in his career – all in 2008 with the Padres and Yankees. He pitched to a 1.93 ERA over 4 2/3 innings with both teams that season.

Patterson has been in the Mariners minor league system since 2010. He was 1-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 26 relief appearances for Triple-A Tacoma this season.

Patterson will report to Triple-A Buffalo.


Don't understand why Tambellini remains ranked so low. He has improved his two-way game by leaps and bounds in the past two seasons and the offensive skill set is on par with Buchnevich. Glossing over this list you can tell when evaluators haven't done the necessary research to make proper rankings; I mean Graves at 14? Skapski at 16? Based on their individual production this past season and the environment in which they performed (Skapski in the NHL) they should be much further along on the list, especially Graves who received great reviews -- more than any Rangers defensive prospects other than Walcott who was since traded.

Oscar and Brady seem to have a good shot at making the team.  Looking forward to see if they have a good camp...along w/ some others!
