It's been a while since we're ran a minor matters post, but there has been a pair of minor transactions made today that have been lost in the shuffle as we deal with the trade rumors coming in from every angle. Let's check them out...

The New York Mets signed former first-round draft pick right-handed pitcher Craig Hansen to a minor league deal, the team announced today (via ESPN New York's Mike Mazzeo). The 28-year-old Hansen hasn't thrown a pitch in the majors since 2009 or a pitch in the minors since 2010 when he was with the Pirates.

In another minor move, the Philadelphia Phillies outrighted outfielder Jason Pridie to Class Triple-A Lehigh Valley, the team announced today. The 28-year-old played well in 13 games with Philadelphia's minor league team, hitting .370/.442/.652 over 52 plate appearances. The Phillies designated Pridie for assignment two days ago to make room on the roster for infielder Laynce Nix.
