Mets Sign Tim Byrdak for 2012
The Mets have made their first move towards shaping up the bullpen for 2012 in bringing back veteran southpaw Tim Byrdak for next year.
“Going into last offseason we really didn’t have lefties that we felt we could count on,” Alderson said. “This year going into the offseason we’ll have two — Tim and Danny Herrera. So that’s a positive step forward for us. So we’re very pleased he’s coming back.”
The 37-year old is 2-0 with a 2.89 ERA in 69 games for the Mets as the lefty specialist. In his past 48 games, Byrdak is sporting a dazzling 1.44 ERA.
Well at least there is one go-to guy for the 2012 ‘pen, a nice safe move by Alderson in my opinion.
