NEW YORK (AP) — Pitcher-turned-outfielder Adam Loewen has agreed to a minor league contract with the New York Mets.
The 27-year-old Loewen, who will attend major league spring training under Tuesday’s deal, was 6 for 32 (.188) for Toronto last season with one home run and four RBIs. He hit .306 at Triple-A Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League with 46 doubles, 17 homers and 85 RBIs.
Loewen was 8-8 with a 5.38 ERA in 29 starts and six relief appearances for the Baltimore Orioles from 2006-09.
