Update – 8:11 p.m.: Hubbuch has edited the post. It now only says that Escobar was offered a deal, not that he signed one.
Original Post: According to Bart Hubbuch, Kelvim Escobar has signed a minor-league contract with the Mets.
Escobar missed all of 2008 and nearly all of ‘09 with shoulder injuries. His last full season came in 2007 with the Angels. He went posted a 3.40 ERA and 1.267 WHIP. He struck out 160 and walked 66 in 195 2-3 innings. He surrendered 11 home runs.
Escobar will likely work out of the bullpen due to his injuries.
