The New York Mets have re-signed left-handed reliever Tim Byrdak to a minor league contract.

The New York Mets have re-signed left-handed reliever Tim Byrdak to a minor league contract, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN New York:

Left-handed reliever Tim Byrdak will re-sign with the Mets on a minor league deal.

The agreement was initially reported by Mike Silva of WGBB.

Byrdak underwent surgery to repair a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder on Sept. 6. This is the same procedure that Mets’ starters Chris Young and Johan Santana have undergone, and it generally sidelines pitchers for at least a year. For this reason there appears to be little chance that Byrdak contributes much, if at all, at the major league level in 2013.

Byrdak has spent the past two seasons pitching for the Mets. Last year he posted an ERA of 4.40 over 56 appearances spanning 30 2/3 innings. Over two seasons in New York he’s maintained an ERA of 4.08.

Byrdak, 39, has a career ERA of 4.30 over 11 seasons at the major league level with 8.7 strikeouts and 5.4 walks per nine innings.
