Mets sign RHP DJ Mitchell
The 25-year-old Mitchell made one start for Triple-A Tacoma before the Seattle Mariners designated him for assignment April 11. The Mets signed him Monday.
Mitchell appeared in four games for the New York Yankees as a reliever in 2012, positing a 3.86 ERA in 4 2-3 inning without a decision. He was acquired by the Mariners as part of the trade that sent Ichiro Suzuki to the Bronx.
A 10th-round draft pick by the Yankees in 2008, Mitchell is 47-26 with a 3.53 ERA in 103 games -- 96 starts.
Mitchell will report to the Mets training facility in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
