Less than a month after being outrighted from the Toronto Blue Jays 40-man roster, Canadian outfielder Adam Loewen appears to have found a new team.

According to Baseball America, Loewen has signed a minor-league deal with the New York Mets.

The 27-year-old, who spent most of last season with triple-A Las Vegas, had one home run and four RBIs in 14 games with the Blue Jays. He had a .306 average with 17 homers and 85 RBIs with the 51s.

Loewen was taken fourth overall in the 2002 draft by the Baltimore Orioles as a pitcher, but he made the switch to outfield in 2009 after multiple injuries.
