Mets Sign Dale Thayer

The Mets have signed right-hander Dale Thayer to a minor league contract, tweets Jon Paul Morosi of, and the deal does not include an invitation to Major League camp in Spring Training.

Thayer, 30, pitched in one game for the Rays in 2010, and has a career ERA of 7.47 in the big leagues in 12 appearances.

Thayer was signed by the Padres as an amateur free agent in 2002 and dealt to the Rays in September 2006 as part of the swap that sent Russell Branyan from Tampa Bay to San Diego.

Thayer is of no consequence but his moustache is surely worthy of some sort of notoriety.

Thayer is worth signing just for his mustache alone.

He’s getting old but has great minors stats. Could be a AAAA player but hasn’t really been given a chance at the major league level yet. Worth a minor league deal.
