Carlos Torres A Lock For Mets Bullpen


Team sources have told Adam Rubin that the Mets are planning to have reliever Carlos Torres break camp with the big-league roster.

The right-hander is out of options, meaning he would need to clear waivers to be sent to the minors. After a solid season for the Mets in 2013, there’s no chance he wouldn’t get claimed by another team.

Torres, 31, went 4-6 with a 3.44 ERA and 1.112 WHIP in 33 appearances including nine starts last season.

Along with Torres, Ruben Tejada and Eric Young Jr. are the only Mets out of options, writes Rubin.

I like Torres… He was a nice pickup by Sandy Alderson last offseason…
