Torres Has Earned His Spot In The Rotation

When we signed journey-man Carlos Torres to a deal in the off-season, I was somewhere between disappointment and apathy, honestly. I thought that he would serve no purpose on this team and that he was wasting space in a Triple-A rotation. I made comments akin to, “This is exactly the reason no other Triple-A affiliate wants to take the field for the Mets.” And yes, as he struggled...

What exactly is Carlos Torres’ off-speed pitch?

That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet And that’s how Shakespeare ties into Carlos Torres. It’s time to take a look at Torres and his nasty off-speed pitch, which seems to me to be a slider. But if you go to his FanGraphs page, it shows him throwing four pitches – fastball, cutter, curve and change. Not a slider in sight, or so it would seem. ...

Torres Solid Again As Mets Bounce Back With 4-1 Win Over Braves

The New York Mets came back from a heartbreaking loss on Monday to beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 and even up the series at a game apiece tonight at Citi Field. Carlos Torres was impressive again in his second start for the Mets. After being greeted by a home run from Andrelton Simmons to leadoff the game, Torres settled into a groove and weaved in and out of trouble as he held the...

Mets rally to beat Braves, 4-1, back strong effort from Carlos Torres

Mets manager Terry Collins offered one specific piece of advice to his starting pitcher Carlos Torres minutes before he took the mound opposite the Braves Tuesday night: keep the ball away from Andrelton Simmons. Torres could not. Simmons, the Braves’ leadoff hitter, whacked Torres’s second pitch, an 87 mph changeup over the heart of the plate, for a home run over the left-field...

Braves Starting Rotation in Turmoil

The Atlanta Braves starting pitching rotation was predictable the first three months of the season.  Tim Hudson, Paul Maholm, Kris Medlen, Mike Minor and Julio Teheran, in that order, were rolled out against opponents from day one. While the bullpen and other positions on the team were in flux due to injuries and inconsistent performances, the starting rotation was rock solid and...

Medlen Struggles Again as Mets Down Braves

Once again, the Atlanta Braves struggled to score runs against the New York Mets on Tuesday night, as the Mets were able to score 3 runs late to defeat the Braves, 4-1. The Braves were 1-8 with RISP during Tuesday’s game.  That does not bode well for getting runs or a win in any game. The only Braves run of the game came from the very 1st batter, Andrelton Simmons.  Simmons led...

Carlos In And Out Of Danger

Although it didn't start down the path of righteousness, Carlos Torres turned in a solid performance giving up only one run in six innings and getting the win last night over the Braves. He gave up a home run to the first batter of the game, and then left runners on in all but one of his six innings, but with the help of Juan Lagares cutting a runner down at the plate, he gut...

Mets 4, Braves 1

Carlos Torres pitched six impressive innings as a fill-in starter and had an RBI single, Ike Davis turned an angry crowd in his favor with a go-ahead double in a three-run sixth and the New York Mets beat the Atlanta Braves 4-1 Tuesday night. John Buck had a run-scoring single and Juan Lagares a sacrifice fly in a sixth inning that helped the Mets beat Atlanta's Kris Medlen...

Three Cuts: Simmons' blast not enough as Mets get to Medlen

Taking three cuts after the Braves' 4-1 loss to the Mets on Tuesday at Citi Field. 1. The long ball hasn't meant what it once did to the Braves' win total Andrelton Simmons took the second pitch of the game from Carlos Torres and delivered his 10th home run of the year and his third leadoff blast -- and expectedly, Tweets touting the Braves' record when the go deep...

Is Braves Kris Medlen Bullpen Bound?

Atlanta Braves starter Kris Medlen has struggled lately and he’ll have to turn it around if he wants to stay in the Braves’ starting rotation.  Medlen starts Tuesday night against the New York Mets and he needs to make it a good one. Medlen has a 1-2 record in July, with a 7.63 ERA.  He’s given up 26 hits in only 15.1 innings and walked 6, while striking out 10.  What is...

Is This Recent Success Sustainable?

The Mets keep rolling.  Having won 19 of their last 31, sporting a win percentage of .612 over that stretch, the Mets didn’t cool off after the All-Star break.  Taking the series against the Phillies, even after a crushing first game loss, and splitting the series so far at one game a piece with the division leading Braves, the Mets are continuing to climb their way back to...
