Mets Sign Tim Byrdak To Minor League Deal

As reported by Adam Rubin Of ESPN NY, Tim Byrdak will be signing a minor-league deal with the Mets for 2013

While a bit of an odd move considering Byrdak just had surgery on a torn anterior capsule and the recovery time is over a year, the Mets may just be looking to add some depth that may be able to contribute to some extent for the 2013 season.

This may be something that is beneficial to both parties, and maybe the recovery time for Byrdak can be less since he is a reliever who throws fewer pitches.
