Minor Moves: Dale Thayer

Here’s where we’ll keep track of the day’s minor moves…

  • Right-hander Dale Thayer elected free agency, according to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com (on Twitter). The Mets removed the 30-year-old from their 40-man roster last Friday. Thayer spent most of the 2011 season at Triple-A Buffalo, where he posted a 2.66 ERA with 8.4 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9 in 71 innings over the course of 54 relief appearances. Though he's probably not more than an 11th or 12th pitcher on a Major League staff, his minor league numbers suggest he may have value as a depth signing on a minor league deal.
