Kyle Farnsworth gets some help for second save
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:45 am ET) Mets close Kyle Farnsworth faltered a bit, but never folded as he picked up his second save in a 3-2 win over the Cardinals Wednesday.

Farnsworth allowed three straight hits after recording the first out of the inning, and his defense bailed him out for the second out, as the tying run was thrown out at the plate. Farnsworth picked up the final out to close out the win.

Farnsworth is now 2 for 2 since being named the closer, and has a 1.74 ERA in 10 1/3 innings of work overall. 

Kyle Farnsworth 'fine' after recording first save Monday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/22/14) The Mets said closer Kyle Farnsworth is "fine" after he was briefly hunched over in the tunnel to the clubhouse and shaking his forearm after converting a save Monday against the Braves, per ESPN.

Farnsworth acknowledged he was flexing his forearm after his first save since replacing Jose Valverde as the team's closer, but suggested it was merely a sign of being "old."

Farnsworth might be unavailable Tuesday due to being used and warming up too frequently as of late, according to the team.

Kyle Farnsworth secures first save Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/21/14) Mets pitcher Kyle Farnsworth locked down his first save of the season Monday, allowing one hit in a scoreless ninth inning in his team's 2-0 win over the Cardinals.

Farnsworth let the leadoff hitter reach base but promptly erased the threat by inducing a ground-ball double play. He should continue to man the ninth inning for the foreseeable future. Farnsworth owns a 0.96 ERA and 6:2 K:BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings.

Kyle Farnsworth not a great long-term bet
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/14) Mets manager Terry Collins named Kyle Farnsworth the closer over the weekend, bumping Jose Valverde from the role before he had a chance to blow a second save. But general manager Sandy Alderson didn't sound 100 percent sold on the move, suggesting they could go back to Valverde or even someone like Carlos Torres. 

Which is not so surprising, really. Farnsworth, like Valverde before him, is a de facto closer, claiming the role not because he earned it, but because the Mets had to make a change. He's had successful stints as a closer in the past, including a half-season with the Braves in 2005 and nearly a full season with the Rays in 2011. But he has an unsteady track record and a history of arm troubles. With reduced stuff at age 38, he's just holding down the role until the Mets find something better.

Maybe that something better is Valverde himself, as Alderson suggested. I doubt it, but if he's leaving open the possibility, so should we. Maybe it's Gonzalez Germen after he has a little more time to establish himself in middle relief. Maybe it's Vic Black once he gets back to throwing strikes at Triple-A Las Vegas. Maybe it's Joel Hanrahan. Who knows?

But I'm willing to bet it won't be Farnsworth. Too many potential pitfalls. If you need a short-term fix for saves, he's fine, but don't expect much in the long run.

Mets keeping closer options open
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/21/14) The Mets inserted Kyle Farnsworth into the closing role this weekend, but general manager Sandy Alderson is keeping his options open regarding the role moving forward, including potentially using Carlos Torres or the recently removed Jose Valverde in the ninth inning at some point, the Star-Ledger reports.

"In my view we’ve got a lot of guys that are sort of on a par," Sandy Alderson regarding his comfort level with Farnsworth as closer. "Valverde pitches a little differently than he does over the first four, five outings, there’s no reason he can’t be as effective as he was yesterday. Torres has been very good for us. The nice thing about Carlos is that he can go more than one inning typically. So we’ll see how it goes with Farnsworth. I like the variety of options we may have going forward. The key is for guys to get better and we’ll also see how things develop at Vegas."

The Mets will likely stick with Farnsworth as long as he remains productive. He has given up just one earned run in 8 1/3 innings while striking out six and walking two.
