The New York Mets have finalized a one-year deal to bring back reliever Noel Salas, the team announced Wednesday.
Salas went 3-7 with a 3.91 ERA in 73 2/3 innings split between the Angels and Mets last season.
The 31-year-old, who the Mets acquired from the Angels on Aug. 31 in exchange for Minor League right-hander Erik Manoah, was 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA in 17 1/3 innings with New York.
Salas' best season came in 2011, when he recorded a career-high 24 saves while helping the Cardinals win the World Series.
