Tim Redding started 17 games and threw 120 innings for the Mets in 2009, but he spent all of last season at Triple-A and will likely begin this year there as well after signing a minor-league contract with the Dodgers.

Redding pitched pretty well at Triple-A with a 2.89 ERA and 83/22 K/BB ratio in 109 innings and he’s been a useful back-of-the-rotation starter in the past, but he picked perhaps the toughest rotation in the majors to crack because the Dodgers already have six veteran starters under contract in Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly, Hiroki Kuroda, Vicente Padilla, and Jon Garland.

Once upon a time Redding was a top prospect for the Astros, but now he’s 32 years old with a career ERA of 4.95 in 822 innings.
