Hampson also returning

It's a bit of old news but other then a forum I frequent I hadn't seen this mentioned, so I thought it should be passed along.  Just before spring training the Mets re-signed Justin Hampson.  The 31 y/o lefty had two solid years in the Padres pen and last year put up decent numbers in Buffalo.

For two consecutive seasons (2007-2008) he posted solid numbers out of the Padres pen, holding LHH to a .242 BAA and keeing his ERA under 3.00.  Repeated shoulder tendinitis in his throwing arm seems to have derailed things.
