Andres Torres To Be Activated From DL On Monday
Outfielder Andres Torres was 1-for-3 with a walk and a run score on Saturday in what was his final rehab game for Buffalo. Torres will join the Mets in time for Monday’s game in Houston.
Torres has been on the disabled list since April 6 after straining his right calf muscle.
He hit .263 (5-19) with four runs scored, one double and one RBI with three stolen bases in five rehabilitation games.
In last night’s 18-9 loss to the Rockies, Chris Schwinden allowed six runs, five earned, on seven hits with one walk and no strikeouts.
Terry Collins is on record as saying he will shift Kirk Nieuwenhuis to left field and give Torres the starting center field assignment once he’s activated against the Houston Astros. Kirk has never played left in his professional career.
Torres is also expected to bat leadoff again upon his return.
Collins emphasized that Torres was acquired to bat leadoff and play center and that’s exactly what he expects to do with him.
