Odds and ends this Friday:
- The Mets have signed Tim Redding to a one-year, $2.25 million contract.
Redding dominated the Phillies in his first two starts against them in 2008, but the Phils beat the pulp out of him in the next two. Redding finished 2008 with a 4.98 ERA.
- Jimmy Rollins is being considered for a spot on Team USA in the World Baseball Classic.
Provisional 45-man rosters will be announced January 19, with final rosters of 28 players set by February 24.
