As first reported by’s Anthony DiComo, the Mets have re-signed right-hander Jeremy Hefner to a one-year contract. No word yet on the financials.

Hefner was non-tendered by the Mets earlier this month after undergoing Tommy John elbow surgery in late August. He’s likely to sit out for the entire 2014 season, so this deal basically just covers his rehab.

Hefner, 27, had a 4.34 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 130 2/3 innings this past season with New York before his elbow gave out on him. He owns a 4.65 ERA (79 ERA+) in 224 1/3 career major league frames.

    I’m glad Hefner is staying in the NL East :)

    Happy for him, he’s a good dude who was actually on quite an awesome run for a while there last year. Very useful arm to have around.

    He is a class act.Hope that he can recapture some of the magic that he had for about one month in 2013.
