Free-agent reliever Greg Burke is headed to the Colorado Rockies on a minor league deal with a spring-training invite, a source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Burke, 31, was removed from the 40-man roster last month and subsequently became a free agent.

He had a 5.68 ERA in 32 relief appearances for the Mets last season.

The Mets and Blue Jays also were believed to have made offers.
Adam Rubin has covered the Mets since 2003. He's a graduate of Mepham High School on Long Island and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He joined ESPNNewYork after spending 10 years at the New York Daily News.
