The Mets continued to build pitching depth and insurance at the top of the organization on Thursday afternoon, signing RHP Jim Henderson to a minor league contract with an invite to Major League spring training, the club announced.
Originally drafted by the Expos in 2003, Henderson, 33, has made 111 career relief appearances in the big leagues with the Brewers from 2012-2014. In his first full season in 2013, Henderson went 5-5 with a 2.70 ERA and 28 saves in 61 games.
He’s 8-9 with a 3.44 ERA with 137 strikeouts in 102 innings in 111 career relief appearances with the Brewers.
He spent most of the 2015 season at Triple-A Colorado Springs after undergoing shoulder surgery in 2014. He went 1-1 with a 4.55 ERA in 29 games for the Sky Sox, and posted a 3.86 ERA in 14 appearances after the All-Star Break.
