Mets Additions And Subtractions

As originally reported here, the Mets yesterday added 30 year old journeyman catcher Taylor Teagarden on a minor league deal with an invitation to major league spring training.  Teagarden has appeared in the majors in each of the last six seasons, but has never been a regular feature.  He figures to be the starting catcher at AAA Las Vegas and could fill in if either Travis d'Arnaud or Anthony Recker succumb to injury.

Resident ol' timer Scott Atchison has signed a minor league deal with the Cleveland Indians, per a report by ESPN New York's Adam Rubin.  Atchison appeared in 51 games for the Mets in 2013, pitching to a 3-3 record and a 4.37 ERA.  He will be remembered most fondly as the source of many a Father Time joke on twitter, but is highly replaceable from a baseball standpoint.
