Carlos Torres gave up three runs over six innings Friday in a loss to the Brewers.

All three runs scored in the first inning, first with a solo homer from Norichika Aoki and then a two-run blast by Kris Davis. Torres was otherwise solid, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out seven. The 30-year-old right-hander will wrap up the year with a surprising 3.44 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 75/17 K/BB ratio over 86 1/3 innings. He has found a niche as a swingman with the Mets.

Carlos Torres pitched six innings of two-run ball and struck out six Sunday in a victory over the Phillies.

Torres started on three days' rest after throwing two innings out of the pen on Wednesday. The 30-year-old journeyman has turned in four quality starts in five tries since being added to the rotation at the end of August. The Mets won't be penciling him into their 2014 rotation, but he's done a good enough job that he should keep his 40-man roster spot this winter.

Carlos Torres threw two scoreless innings, striking out four, in a relief appearance against the Giants on Wednesday.

The appearance was a bit of a surprise, as there had been no mention of Torres being removed from the rotation before Wednesday's game. Even more strange is the fact that he'd actually been pretty good as a member of the rotation -- his last time out he struck out eight while allowing two runs over six innings. His fantasy value takes a huge hit if he stays in the pen for the rest of the year, obviously.

Carlos Torres yielded two earned runs in six innings as the Mets lost Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

It wasn't a bad start for the 30-year-old right-hander, who struck out eight and allowed only three hits, but New York's offense decided to take the afternoon off. Torres will bring a solid 3.48 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into his next scheduled outing versus the Phillies.

Carlos Torres will start Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

Torres was slated to start the nightcap with Daisuke Matsuzaka working the early game, but manager Terry Collins has decided to flip the duo. Torres will look to bounce back from a horrific effort against the Nationals on Monday where he surrendered six runs, including four homers, in his four innings of work.

Carlos Torres was tagged for six runs in four innings by the Nationals on Monday.

Denard Span, Ryan Zimmerman, Jayson Werth and Tyler Moore all took him deep. Torres had pitched well in his previous couple of starts, but he was never a very good bet in NL-only leagues. Of course, given their lack of arms, he should finish the season in the Mets rotation regardless of how he performs.

Carlos Torres allowed three runs in the seventh inning to take the loss against the Braves on Tuesday.

Torres had been spotless up until that point, but Evan Gattis and Andrelton Simmons launched home runs to make Torres the unlucky loser. He struck out six in his seven innings and has now been pretty good in two starts since taking over for Matt Harvey in the Mets rotation. He's got another tough assignment Monday when he faces the Nationals.

Carlos Torres yielded one run over 6 2/3 innings Thursday in a win over the Phillies.

Torres, who took the place of the injured Matt Harvey in the starting rotation, held the Phillies to just four hits and no walks while notching six strikeouts. The 30-year-old now owns a fine 2.77 ERA and 40/7 K/BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings over four starts and 23 relief appearances this season. He has a found a niche as a swingman with the club and could be worth a look in NL-only fantasy leagues the rest of the way.

Carlos Torres will take the place of Matt Harvey (elbow) in the rotation Thursday against the Phillies.

And with Tommy John surgery looking inevitable for Harvey, Torres figures to keep the rotation spot for the rest of the year. The 30-year-old has a 3.00 ERA and 34/7 K/BB ratio over 48 innings with the Mets this season and could be worth a look in NL-only fantasy leagues.
Mon, Aug 26, 2013 04:27:00 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Carlos Torres is penciled in to start Friday against the Tigers.

Things could change, but he's slated to fill in for Jenrry Mejia, who was placed on the disabled list over the weekend with an elbow injury. Torres owns a solid 3.00 ERA and 34/7 K/BB ratio over 45 innings with the Mets this season, but he's a shaky option in fantasy leagues.
Mon, Aug 19, 2013 05:31:00 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed that Carlos Torres has officially been moved to the bullpen.

Torres replaced Shaun Marcum in the starting rotation in early July, but has been used as a a reliever in each of his last two outings. The Mets will revert back to a five-man rotation until Jon Niese returns from the disabled list.

The clock struck midnight on Carlos Torres on Sunday, as he was crushed for eight runs on nine hits over three innings in a lopsided loss to the Nationals.

He struck out two and walked one. Torres replaced Shaun Marcum in the Mets' rotation earlier this month after allowing just one run over 15 2/3 innings while boasting a 14/2 K/BB ratio as a reliever. He surrendered just two runs over 11 innings in his first two starts to enter Sunday's outing with a 0.94 ERA. Washington's onslaught swelled Torres' ERA to 3.13. The 30-year-old righty has never had any sustained success in the big leagues and remains solely an NL-only option.

Carlos Torres allowed one run over six innings in the Mets' 4-1 victory over the Braves on Tuesday.

Torres has been terrific all season and continued it on Tuesday, giving up seven hits and two walks while allowing just the one run. He struck out six in the outing, his first win of the season. He's got a 0.94 ERA and 26/4 K/BB in 28 2/3 innings this year. He just recently moved into the rotation, but there's no reason to think he won't stay for the near future. He'll start against the Nationals on Sunday in Washington, D.C.
Tue, Jul 23, 2013 10:28:00 PM

Carlos Torres pitched well in his first start for the Mets on Saturday, allowing one run on five hits over five frames in a no-decision against the Pirates.

Torres racked up five strikeouts in the game without issuing a free pass. He left in line to earn the victory, but the Mets' bullpen was unable to hold on to the advantage. The 30-year-old righty has never had any sustained success in the big leagues, and shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a matchup play in fantasy leagues.
