MLB News: The New York Mets have optioned pitcher D.J. Mitchell to Triple-A Las Vegas after signing him to a minor league contract on Monday. Being designated for assignment by the Seattle Mariners a week and a half ago, Mitchell chose to become a free agent and try his luck elsewhere.
Fantasy Ramifications: Mitchell holds no true fantasy baseball value in 2013. Even when he makes it to the major leagues, he will not have a strong enough role with a team to warrant an addition to any roster. Leave him be in dynasty leagues.
