Mets Sign Blaine Boyer

The Mets have signed right-hander Blaine Boyer to a minor league contract, reports's Adam Rubin.  The deal includes an invitation to New York's Major League Spring Training camp.

Boyer was selected as a non-tender candidate by MLBTR's Tim Dierkes in November, and indeed, the 29-year-old reliever was non-tendered by Arizona last month.  Boyer posted a 4.26 ERA in 54 appearances with the D'Backs in 2010, and had a perfectly matched K/BB ratio (29 strikeouts, 29 walks).  On the plus side, he's a hard-thrower with one of the best groundball rates in the game.
