Mets pitcher Alex Torres works out of jam Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Mets relief pitcher Alex Torres worked a perfect two innings out of the bullpen in Sunday's 1-0 loss to the Nationals.
Torres picked up three strikeouts in the sixth after Dillon Gee loaded the bases with no outs.
"I owe him way more than a steak dinner for that," said Gee to MLB.com. "I feel terrible that I left him in that spot. He was unbelievable. He came in and just dominated."
Torres has thrown 9 2/3 innings this season with a 2.79 ERA and 13 strikeouts.
"I'm just trying to get comfortable myself," Torres said. "Just try to make a pitch, hit a spot, throw the ball down and just make quality pitches."
Mets' Alderson comfortable with pitching depth after Blevins injury
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said he's comfortable with the team's pitching depth in the wake of the injury to Jerry Blevins, due to the development of several pitchers and the presence of Alex Torres, who like Blevins was acquired just before the start of the regular season, NJ.com reports.
"[Blevins has] been great for the first couple of weeks of the season, and we'll expect he'll be great when he comes back," Alderson said. "In the meantime, somebody else is going to have to step up. Although we've lost Jerry, we still have far more depth than we had say mid-spring training, just because of the development of a couple of the guys and the fact that we also have Alex Torres."
Though the Mets' bullpen has pieced together a mediocre 3.38 ERA in the first two weeks of the season, hitters have just a .174 batting average against Mets relievers, which is third best in the majors.
The Mets will replace Blevins in the bullpen with righty Hansel Robles, who has struck out 10 batters while tossing 7 2/3 scoreless innings with Triple-A Las Vegas.
