RHP Doug Fister has agreed to a minor league deal with the Angels, reports Chris Cotillo of SB Nation.
The Mets had interest in Fister, Jon Heyman of FanRag reported last month.
The 33-year-old Fister, who did not pitch during Spring Training, had a 4.64 ERA (4.75 FIP) and 1.42 WHIP while striking out 115 batters in 180 1/3 innings (32 starts) for the Astros last season.
Fister has posted a 3.60 ERA (3.78 FIP) and 1.24 WHIP in eight seasons split with the Mariners, Tigers, Nationals, and Astros.
The Mets are currently without Noah Syndergaard (lat) Steven Matz (elbow) and Seth Lugo (partially torn UCL). Matz and Lugo are in the middle of rehab assignments and are expected to return by early-June.
