Mets Have Three Players Out Of Options

In an afternoon post to MLB Trade Rumors yesterday, it was determined that the Mets have three players who have less than five years of service time, and who are out of minor league options.  As a result, these players would need to pass through waivers if the Mets wished to demote them to AAA Las Vegas.  In that instance, the Mets would run the risk of losing them if they are...

Is too much of Carlos Torres a bad thing?

There have been some solid long relievers in the history of the New York Mets: Don Cardwell, Ray Sadecki, and Terry Leach all come to mind. A good performance by a team’s primary long reliever is a mixed blessing. A significant contribution by a long reliever (just like a team’s primary pinch-hitter) can be beneficial to a team’s winning percentage but could be the result...

Torres Turns In Great Performance, But Anemic Mets Offense Falters In 3-1 Loss To Atlanta

This had the feel of a real Mets game, guys — I do not know about you all, but I had an eerie feeling that the 1-0 score was never going to hold. The Mets were staked to a 1-0 lead after a Daniel Murphy RBI double in the top of the sixth, while Carlos Torres was completely in control through the first six innings of the game. Unfortunately, he ran into a little trouble in the bottom...

Carlos Torres, Mets offense come up big against Phillies for 11-3 win

After having his rotation decimated by injuries over the past few weeks Terry Collins just wanted some innings from Carlos Torres Thursday. Thrust into the rotation from the bullpen after Matt Harvey was shut down Monday with an elbow injury Torres gave the Mets a real mental boost Thursday. Torres held off the Phillies for 6 2/3 innings as the Mets closed out the series with a...

Torres fills in nicely, Mets beat Phillies 11-3

Carlos Torres did his best Matt Harvey imitation, carrying a two-hit shutout into the seventh inning for the New York Mets in an 11-3 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday. Daniel Murphy had four hits, Eric Young Jr. got three and Anthony Recker added a two-run homer on his 30th birthday as the Mets busted loose for their most runs since beating Washington 11-0 in the...

Carlos In Charge: Torres Shines In Mets Romp Of Phillies, 11-3

Carlos Torres was locked in from the second this game started and seemed determined to prove that he deserved a spot in this rotation. Of course, if he pitches the way he did today on a consistent basis, it’d be hard to keep him out of it — even though he’s sort of landed in the role by default by now. With Jeremy Hefner, Jenrry Mejia, and Matt Harvey all down with injury while...

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...

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...

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. ...
