    No big surprise in either case, but Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets plan to non-tender both right-hander Mike Pelfrey and outfielder Andres Torres before Friday’s deadline for arbitration tenders.

    UPDATE: Francisco must be feeling better now, because he’s available out of the bullpen tonight. ========== For now the Mets are sticking with Frank Francisco as closer despite his 7.71 ERA, but the right-hander was unavailable last night due to hamstring tightness that manager Terry Collins believes could be related to the high altitude in…
