The Mets are considering re-signing reliever Greg Burke this offseason, presumably to a minor league deal with a spring-training invitation, after he was removed from the 40-man roster and became a free agent.

But Burke is expected to have a choice of employers. The sidearmer also is expected to receive offers early this offseason from the Toronto Blue Jays and Colorado Rockies.

Burke, 31, made 32 relief appearances for the Mets last season.
