The left-hander did not get an invitation to major league spring training.

The New York Mets have agreed to terms on a minor league deal with left-hander Dana Eveland, according to a baseball source. The deal does not include a major league spring training invite.

Eveland, 30, will likely head to Triple-A Las Vegas as bullpen depth for the Mets, joining Kyle Farnsworth and Jose Valverde as the team's veteran pitching additions this winter.

Eveland spent last season with the Hanwha Eagles in Korea after seeing major league time in the eight previous seasons. Since making his major league debut in 2005, Eveland has posted a career 19-25 record and 5.46 ERA in 114 major league games (61 starts) with the Brewers (2005-2006), Diamondbacks (2007), Athletics (2008-2009), Blue Jays (2010), Pirates (2010), Dodgers (2011) and Orioles (2012). He last appeared in the majors in 2012 with Baltimore, posting a 4.73 ERA in 14 appearances (2 starts).
