Mets ink reliever Hansen to Minors deal
NEW YORK -- The Mets signed right-handed pitcher Craig Hansen -- who most recently pitched with the Pirates in 2009 -- to a Minor League contract on Tuesday that will extend through next season. He will report to Port St. Lucie, Fla., to begin a throwing program.

Hansen, who was taken 26th overall by the Red Sox in the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, made his debut later that year and appeared in 38 games in 2006. He spent the entire 2007 season with Boston's Triple-A affiliate, and after rejoining the Red Sox in 2008, he was traded to Pittsburgh halfway through the season.

Over four Major League seasons and 95 appearances, Hansen has compiled a 4-9 record and 6.34 ERA.
