By Adam Rubin
The Mets have signed right-handed reliever Greg Burke to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training.
Burke, 30, split last season between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk in the Orioles organization. He went a combined 3-1 with a 1.53 ERA and 17 saves in 44 appearances.
Burke's lone major league experience came in 2009 with the Padres. He had a 4.14 ERA in 48 relief appearances.
He originally is a product of Gloucester (N.J.) Catholic.
