The New York Mets have claimed right handed pitcher Jeremy Hefner off of waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN. Hefner was originally acquired by the Pirates off of waivers from the San Diego Padres on November 18th. He was waived last week to make room for Yamaico Navarro on the 40-man roster.
Rubin also notes that the Mets have signed left hander Garrett Olson to a minor league deal. Olson pitched for the Pirates last year, spending most of his season in Indianapolis.
