The St. Louis Cardinals re-signed reliever T.J. McFarland to a one-year contract for the 2022 season.

Financial terms of the deal announced Monday were not disclosed.

The 32-year-old left-hander signed a $1 million deal with the Cardinals on July 1 after being released by Washington and went 4-1 with a 2.56 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 38 appearances.

McFarland was the losing pitcher in the Cardinals’ 3-1 wild-card playoff loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Oct. 6. He issued a two-out walk in the ninth inning to Cody Bellinger and was replaced by Alex Reyes, who gave up a walk-off home run to Chris Taylor.

McFarland owns a career record of 24-15 with one save and a 3.95 ERA in 323 games (three starts) with Baltimore (2013-16), Arizona (2017-19), Oakland (2020) and St. Louis.
