Mets Sign Mitch Talbot, Daryl Thompson

Here are today's minor moves from around the league…

  • The Mets announced that they have signed right-handers Mitch Talbot and Daryl Thompson to minor league contracts and assigned them to Triple-A Las Vegas. Talbot, 29, began the season with the Marlins but missed nearly four months with an elbow injury after making his first appearance of the season. He made two rehab appearances with Miami's Gulf Coast affiliate prior to his release. He has a 5.30 ERA in 224 2/3 Major League innings.
  • Thompson, 27, was pitching for the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs of the Atlantic League prior to his deal with the Mets. With the Crabs, he posted a 3.18 ERA with 5.3 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 in 124 2/3 innings. His last experience in affiliated ball came with the Twins in 2012 when he posted a 4.71 ERA in 42 innings for Triple-A Rochester.
  • As can be seen in MLBTR's brand new DFA Tracker, Sean O'Sullivan and Wade LeBlanc are currently in DFA limbo. For more on how to use the DFA Tracker, check out Tim Dierkes' primer from earlier today.
