NEW YORK -- Left-hander Shawn Teufel, the son of Mets third-base coach Tim Teufel, will pitch this season for the independent Rockland Boulders.

Teufel, 27, had been released from Mets minor-league camp during spring training.

A former 25th-round pick by the Tigers out of Liberty University, he went a combined 1-1 with a 3.80 ERA and four saves in 37 appearances as a sidearm reliever for four different Mets affiliates in 2013.

Ex-Met Bobby M. Jones is the pitching coach for the Boulders. Rockland's season opens May 23.
