Carlos Torres solid in spot start Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Mets reliever Carlos Torres stepped up in a big way during a spot start Monday against the Cubs after Bartolo Colon was a late scratch due to personal reasons. Torres tossed five scoreless innings, allowing three hits and two walks.

Torres, who pitched one-third of an inning in relief Sunday, got off to a really fast start, as he struck out the side in the first inning. He got all three batters on swinging strikeouts. He finished with six strikeouts.

He allowed a single to Starlin Castro in the second inning, and singles to Luis Valbuena and Justin Ruggiano in the fourth inning, which helped load the bases. But Torres worked out of the two-out jam by striking out Welington Castillo.

He left with a 1-0 lead, but the Mets could not hold the one-run advantage and eventually lost 4-1. Monday was the first time this season Torres drew a start. As of now, he's expected to head back to the bullpen.

Carlos Torres, Mets prospects in play for Tuesday start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) With Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom scratched from his next start due to shoulder soreness, the team has to decide who will start Tuesday against the Nationals.

Assistant general manager John Ricco said Sunday it's unknown how much time deGrom will miss and that is impacting the team's decision on who starts Tuesday.

If doctors determined deGrom will miss just one start, then Carlos Torres will likely start Tuesday. If deGrom needs a stint on the disabled list, then pitching prospects Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero could be options to join the rotation. 

"The first thing we've got to see is if this is a one-start thing or more than that," Ricco said, per ESPN.

Mets keeping closer options open


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2014) 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.
