Farnsworth re-signs, gets 'out'


PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Three days after Kyle Farnsworth was released by the Mets, the veteran reliever officially re-signed Wednesday on a minor-league deal.

Farnsworth's new deal, which saved the Mets a $100,000 retention bonus they were unwilling to pay, is believed to include an out about May 1 if he is not promoted to the big-league club by then.
