Pitcher Tim Byrdak has yet to find a team this offseason, so he is taking to the internet to get a Spring Training invite.
The lefty threw a total of 4.2 innings for the Mets last season, after having shoulder surgery earlier in the year. His Twitter account indicates that he has a back-up plan if he isn't added to a roster this season: becoming a Winter Olympian.
