Torres Confirms He’s Heading To The DL
Update 4:45 PM
Torres confirms he’s going to the DL and when asked how long he’ll be out he responded “I don’t know, three weeks?”.
He’s on his way to Port St. Lucie to begin rehab on his calf.
The Mets options to replace him on the roster would be Adam Loewen, Vinny Rottino, Matt den Dekker and Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Neither of them are perfect options for a variety of reasons.
Original Post 4:05 PM
Andres Torres, who had dealt with a strained left calf for most of spring training, came up lame while chasing a Tyler Pastornicky shot to center in the seventh inning. Torres immediately departed the game, and it looked like he may have re-injured that same left calf.
Scott Hairston took over in center field.
Following the game, Terry Collins said, “I’m sure we’ll have to make a move for tomorrow,” an indication that a trip to the DL is likely.
Collins also said Ruben Tejada will replace Torres as the team’s lead-off hitter.
