If Lyon accepts, he will become a free agent.
Lyon was designated for assignment after giving up a 14th inning run in the Mets loss to the Diamondbacks on the Fourth of July. He was taken off the roster to make room for fellow reliever, Greg Burke.
After signing a one year, $750,000 contract at the beginning of the season, Lyon has produced a 2-2 record with a 4.98 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 34 1/3 innings over 37 games.
During his 12 years in the league, the 33 year old veteran has accumulated a .472 win percentage (42-47) with a 4.16 career ERA.
