Tim Byrdak have "mutual interest" in each other and have been discussing a contract, according to Mets Chronicle's good friend Mike Silva of the New York Baseball Digest. Silva thinks a deal could be finalized within "the next couple of days."
The Mets were looking for southpaw relief help, and Byrdak fits that bill, holding left-handed batters to a .202/.296/.380 line in his nine Major League seasons.
Byrdak, 37, has a 3.46 ERA over the last four seasons but also averaged five walks per nine innings in that stretch; it's actually an upgrade from his career 5.5 BB/9 rate.
Byrdak spent the last three seasons with the Astros, who released the southpaw in November.
