Andres Torres

  1. Mets to non-tender Mike Pelfrey, perhaps Andres Torres

    Oct 22, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Andres Torres

    The New York Post’s Mike Puma was told by a “Mets person” that the team plans to non-tender right-hander Mike Pelfrey, but will try to re-sign him as a free agent. A decision on whether to tender outfielder Andres Torres hasn’t been made. Pelfrey underwent Tommy John surgery in May and is unlikely to be…

  2. Bryce’s boffo belt-busting bellyflop

    Sep 11, 2012, 8:52 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper Belt

    Sorry. Was just practicing in case I ever get a job writing for a gossip site. I mean a gossip site that isn’t specifically about baseball like HBT. Anyway: Harper made a diving attempt at an Andres Torres liner and tore his belt in two. The rookie casually walked over to the Washington bullpen and…

    Sep 3, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Andres Torres

    Andres Torres had a leadoff double erased on appeal to start the top of the ninth Monday as the Cardinals edged the Mets 5-4. First-base umpire David Rackley ruled that that Torres did not touch the bag as he rounded it on his way to second base, giving the Cardinals a big out in a…

  4. Slumping Mets have little to sell

    Jul 25, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    Stephen Strasburg made easy work of the Mets lineup on Wednesday, racking up 11 strikeouts while throwing just 94 pitches in seven innings, and the Nationals won 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep in New York. It was the second straight series in which the Mets have been swept. They’re 1-11 since the All-Star break…

  5. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Just in case there was any lingering doubt about R.A. Dickey‘s case to start for the National League in the upcoming All-Star Game, he pretty much clinched it last night. After giving up five runs over six innings against the Yankees on Sunday, Dickey bounced right back by tossing eight shutout innings as part of…

  6. Andres Torres expected to rejoin Mets on Monday

    Apr 27, 2012, 1:16 PM EDT

    Andres Torres

    Barring another setback with his calf injury Andres Torres is slated to return from the disabled list and rejoin the Mets lineup Monday. Before that happens his minor-league rehab assignment will move from Single-A to Triple-A, with Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reporting that he’ll play for Buffalo tonight and tomorrow. Torres’ return will…

    Derek Jeter

    Here’s a look at the production all 30 teams are getting from their top two hitters to date, ranked by OPS. Yankees – 1.074 Cardinals – .931 Rangers – .851 Mets – .835 Rays – .823 Red Sox – .823 Astros – .789 Braves – .768 Nationals – .751 Giants – .745 Cubs – .738…

  8. Non-displaced rib fracture sends Jason Bay to disabled list

    Apr 24, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    Jason Bay left the second game of yesterday’s doubleheader after injuring his ribs attempting a diving catch and today the Mets put him on the disabled list with a non-displaced fracture. No timetable yet for his return, but at the very least a non-displaced fracture is better than a displaced fracture and Adam Rubin of…

  9. Mets expected to promote Kirk Nieuwenhuis to majors

    Apr 6, 2012, 12:29 AM EDT

    Kirk Nieuwenhuis

    With Andres Torres headed to the disabled list because of a strained left calf, the Mets are planning to promote Kirk Nieuwenhuis from Triple-A prior to Saturday’s game. Nieuwenhuis is recovering from an injury himself, having been down for most of the spring with a strained oblique. That prevented him from getting much play as…

  10. UPDATE: Andres Torres strained his left calf, likely DL-bound

    Apr 5, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    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,…

  11. Jason Bay volunteers to play center field for Mets

    Mar 21, 2012, 5:56 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    With Andres Torres (calf) joining Scott Hairston (oblique) on the sidelines, Jason Bay volunteered to take over in center field for the Mets. Torres is still hopeful of being ready for Opening Day, but Hairston is probably DL bound. The Mets’ third-best option in center field, prospect Kirk Nieuwenhuis, is also nursing an oblique strain.…

  12. Converted pitcher Adam Loewen could make Mets as center fielder

    Mar 12, 2012, 11:13 AM EDT

    New York Mets Photo Day

    Scott Hairston‘s oblique strain leaves the Mets in need of a backup center fielder behind starter Andres Torres and converted pitcher Adam Loewen has a legitimate chance to claim the gig. Loewen was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2002 draft and started 29 games in the majors for the Orioles by age 24,…

  13. Scott Hairston aggravates oblique muscle during intrasquad game

    Mar 3, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Scott Hairston

    Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Scott Hairston was pulled from an intrasquad game today due to a strained left oblique. This is the very same injury which ended his season last August. “Same as last year, pretty much,” Hairston said about the current issue. “I felt it on the swing out there. I felt…

  14. Running down the rosters: New York Mets

    Feb 22, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    Jason Bay, David Wright

    As depressing as all things Mets have been lately, the team on the field still finished a respectable 77-85 last season. Unfortunately, it seems likely that things will get worse before they get better. Rotation Johan Santana – L R.A. Dickey – R Mike Pelfrey – R Jon Niese – L Dillon Gee – R…

  15. Running down the rosters: San Francisco Giants

    Feb 16, 2012, 11:47 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey

    Coming off a disappointing 86-76 finish in 2011, the Giants’ big moves this winter were a pair of underwhelming trades: Jonathan Sanchez for Melky Cabrera and Andres Torres plus Ramon Ramirez for Angel Pagan. To say the least, they didn’t make the kind of splash their fans were hoping for (but have come not to…

    Jan 16, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    Dec 10, 2011, 5:33 PM EDT

    Daniel Murphy

    Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti mentioned during the Winter Meetings that he was working on a deal to add another infielder capable of playing multiple positions.

    Dec 6, 2011, 10:04 PM EDT

    Frank Francisco

    10:15 p.m. EST update: Gulp. FOXSports.com’s Jon Paul Morosi states that the deal is worth $12 million over two years. Apparently, the Mets didn’t get the note that there are more closers available than teams needing them. 10:10 p.m. EST update: Jon Heyman confirms the original report from Newsday’s Ken Davidoff. No word on terms…

  20. Giants looking to trade, but not Tim Lincecum

    Dec 6, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    GM Brian Sabean said Tuesday that even if Tim Lincecum proves unwilling to a long-term deal this winter, the Giants won’t weigh trading the two-time Cy Young Award winner. Lincecum has long figured he could make more money going short-term with the Giants than he could with a longer deal, though he did sign a…
