Carlos Torres threw a scoreless frame in his return to action Thursday.

Torres was unavailable for a few days due to a bruised hand, but it should no longer be an issue. The right-hander has pitched well out of the Mets' bullpen this season, putting up a 2.93 while striking out over a batter per inning.

X-rays on Carlos Torres' hand came back negative.

He just has a bruise and is being listed as day-to-day. Torres earned the win in relief Monday against the Braves with two shutout innings.

Carlos Torres is undergoing an X-ray on his hand.

Torres evidently must have suffered the injury during Monday's two-inning relief appearance. The Mets should update the right-hander's status on Tuesday.

Carlos Torres (lat) pitched 1 1/3 innings of relief in the Mets' loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.

Torres was charged with the only run of the game, yielding a leadoff single to Giancarlo Stanton in the bottom of the ninth inning and then watching Stanton score on a walkoff sacrifice fly from Marcell Ozuna. Torres had been out a couple days with a sore lat muscle.

Carlos Torres is day-to-day with a lat muscle issue.

"You can call it a cramp, whatever it is, but it was bothering him," manager Terry Collins said Tuesday. "And, as you know, you've got to be careful with that stuff." Torres has appeared in 16 of the Mets' first 31 games.

Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Wednesday that Carlos Torres will be in the Opening Day bullpen.

Torres posted a steady 3.44 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in nine starts and 33 relief appearances last season for the Mets and is now being rewarded with some job security for 2014. He'll pitch in mid-to-long relief.

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.
Tue, Sep 3, 2013 09:55:00 PM

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.
