Alex Torres Dominates Despite Bases Loaded Jam

Alex Torres was brilliant in yesterday’s relief appearance as he escaped a bases loaded jam with no outs during the 6th inning. Torres struck out all three batters he faced, which bailed Dillon Gee out of trouble and kept the Mets in the game. “I owe him way more than a steak dinner for that,” said right-hander Dillon Gee, who was responsible for the three runners on base...

Mets Game Thread: Alex Torres Delivers

It is now 15 scoreless innings and counting and the Mets are on the cusp of losing three of four to the Nationals.

Baseball's protective hat should be a no-brainer for pitchers

Say this for Padres reliever Alex Torres: We do not know where the future will take this promising 26-year-old left-hander. But we do know a part of him already has made it to the Hall of Fame. His cap. Yes, that goofy looking thing that makes his head look top-heavy and rivals gawk and joke. And, you know, the thing that eventually might save a life in the major leagues. So far...
