The Mets signed pitcher Freddy Garcia to a minor league deal yesterday and invited him to spring training. Garcia’s name has come up several times over the last few years with regard to the Mets but an acquisition was never made for various reasons. This is a typical Omar Minaya signing. Minaya likes to stock up on any arm he can going into spring training. This year in particular the starting rotation is a mess so this signing makes sense.
