The Mets have signed outfielder Jamie Hoffmannto a minor league deal, a major league source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Hoffman, 28, played in the Orioles' system last year at Triple-A Norfolk. In 110 games, he hit .254 with 11 home runs and an OBP of .347.

Hoffman was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2003, out of a New Mexico High School. He played in 14 games for the Dodgers in 2009, and didn't make it back to the Majors until 2011, and he only received four plate appearances.

Hoffman has a career minor league batting average of .286, and has amassed 4,067 plate appearances in the minors.

Earlier today the Mets also signed two minor league pitchers, Carlos Torres and Scott Rice. Adam Rubin reported this as well.

The Mets have signed left-hander Scott Rice and right-hander Carlos Torres to minor league deals with spring-training invites.

Torres pitched 31 games for Colorado last season, posting an ERA of 5.26.
