Mets signed RHP Kevin Mulvey to a minor league contract.

Mulvey was released by the Diamondbacks earlier this week, but originally drafted by the Mets and traded to the Twins in the Johan Santana deal. The contract does not include an invite to spring training.

Diamondbacks released RHP Kevin Mulvey.

Mulvey posted a 6.59 ERA and 66/44 K/BB ratio in 110 2/3 minor-league innings last season. The 26-year-old right-hander will try to latch on with another organization.

Diamondbacks sent RHP Kevin Mulvey outright to Triple-A Reno.

Mulvey was designated for assignment by the D'Backs earlier this week. He drew no interest on waivers.

Diamondbacks designated RHP Kevin Mulvey for assignment.

Mulvey allowed five hits and two earned runs in three innings of work with the Diamondbacks earlier this season. The 26-year-old should pass easily through waivers.

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Kevin Mulvey to Triple-A Reno.

Mulvey was called to the bigs just four days ago and allowed five hits and two earned runs in three innings of work. He will head down to Triple-A Reno to make room for Monday's starter, right-hander Cesar Valdez.

Updating a previous item, the Diamondbacks haven't decided who will take Kris Benson's spot in the starting rotation.

It was assumed that Kevin Mulvey, who was recalled on Thursday, would step in, but that's not necessarily the case. If the Diamondbacks decide to reach into the minors, Billy Buckner or Cesar Valdez are possibilities.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Kevin Mulvey from Triple-A Reno.

He was a logical choice to fill the vacant spot in the rotation left by the perpetually-injured Kris Benson. Mulvey, who turns 25 in May, posted a 4.05 ERA with 14 strikeouts in 20 innings with Reno. The former second-round pick has an ugly 8.14 ERA over eight career major league appearances (four starts).

Diamondbacks optioned RHPs Kevin Mulvey and Billy Buckner, 1B Brandon Allen and OF Cole Gillespie to Triple-A Reno.

Rodrigo Lopez was already named the No. 4 starter on Tuesday, so the demotion of Mulvey and Buckner means that the Diamondbacks will likely go without a fifth starter until mid-April. The Diamondbacks have the luxury of doing this because they have two days off during the first eight days of the new season. With a date for Brandon Webb's return in doubt, Mulvey, Buckner or Kris Benson will likely fill the slot when needed.

Kevin Mulvey allowed eight runs -- three earned -- over just two innings in a loss to the Padres on Monday night.

The emergence of non-roster invitee Rodrigo Lopez has likely left Mulvey and Billy Buckner fighting it out for the final spot in the rotation. While Mulvey faltered on Monday, Buckner made only one mistake -- surrendering a two-run homer to Will Venable in the fourth inning. It was the only hit he would allow in four innings of work. Neither are very inspiring choices at the back of a starting rotation, but hopefully they'll only have a temporary stay until Brandon Webb returns from the disabled list.

Kevin Mulvey allowed four runs, all of them unearned, in 2 1/3 innings out of the pen Thursday against the A's.

If Brandon Webb begins the season on the DL, Billy Buckner would seem to be a shoo-in for one spot in Arizona's rotation, leaving Mulvey and Rodrigo Lopez to battle for the other one. Both pitchers have ERAs in the 3.60-3.70 range right now. Mulvey, though, is getting worse instead of better.

Despite allowing just one hit, Kevin Mulvey gave up three runs in three innings Saturday against the Dodgers.

Unfortunately, there were three walks to go along with the one hit, which happened to be a three-run homer off the bat of Blake DeWitt. Mulvey entered camp as the underdog in a competition with Billy Buckner for a rotation spot. However, it’s possible that both will make the team with Brandon Webb likely DL bound.

Kevin Mulvey started versus the Rockies on Sunday and turned in two scoreless innings.

It was a weak split-squad lineup that he faced, but Mulvey got off to a nice start as he attempts to overtake Billy Buckner for the final spot in Arizona's rotation. Of course, there could be room for both if Brandon Webb lands on the DL.

Kevin Mulvey yielded four runs over six innings in a 4-1 loss to the Giants on Wednesday night.

Mulvey was legitimately in the game until serving up a go-ahead three-run homer to the usually light-hitting Eli Whiteside in the fourth. He fanned four and walked one in the loss. The 24-year-old right-hander completes the year at 0-3 with a 7.04 ERA over eight appearances (four starts). His brief audition with the D'Backs in September wasn't all that convincing, but he has a real chance to open 2010 in the starting rotation.

Kevin Mulvey yielded three runs over six innings in a 5-2 loss to the Giants on Wednesday night.

The only hits he gave up were to Juan Uribe, but they were mighty costly, as he hit an RBI double in the second and a two-run homer in the sixth. Mulvey fanned four and walked four in the loss. Still, it was a mighty impressive outing for the 24-year-old in just his third major league start. While he isn't ready to contribute in fantasy leagues quite yet, it will be interesting to see how he responds with another start against the Giants next week.
