Andres Torres

UPDATE: Yep, the Mets just confirmed that he strained his left calf. He’s probably headed to the disabled list.

3:28 PM: Mets center fielder Andres Torres had a sore calf bugging him throughout spring training, but declared himself “100%” in the run-up to Opening Day.  Not anymore, it seems.

In the top of the seventh, Torres ran back to field what became a Tyler Pastornicky triple, came up lame and left the game.  It appeared to be that calf.

Updates as warranted.

    As a Giants fan, I have a soft spot for Torres. Works hard, seems like a good guy and a good clubhouse guy. Sorry he’s hurt.

    Mets shouldn’t of rushed him. They have no outfield depth. Now Bay is guaranteed a spot. When will Bay figure it out?

    Also a G’s fan, never like to see him hurt. But, I will say that Torres has always incurred a lot of leg injuries when he plays full-time.
