Brewers signed RHP Carlos Torres to a one-year contract.

It had been reported by Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN earlier in the day that the two sides were close to a deal. Torres will claim the final bullpen spot on the Brewers' Opening Day roster. He's expected to work in middle relief.
Apr 2 - 12:35 PM

Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN reports that Carlos Torres is expected to sign with the Brewers.

Torres was released by the Braves on Thursday. The Brewers bullpen has been absolutely decimated by injuries, so it would be a terrific opportunity for the free agent right-hander.
Apr 2 - 10:09 AM

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports that Carlos Torres is "drawing strong interest" and is a "likely candidate" for a major league contract.

It's a little surprising given that Torres signed a minor league deal with the Braves in February and was released on Thursday. However, the 33-year-old was quite useful at times over the last three seasons for the Mets, so perhaps he can find a middle relief role.
Apr 1 - 3:14 PM

Braves released RHP Carlos Torres.

Torres opted out of his minor league contract on Thursday after being told that he would not be carried on the Opening Day roster. The right-hander struggled in 2015, but he was very good the year before. He should be able to find another opportunity quickly.
Mar 31 - 2:28 PM

Braves signed RHP Carlos Torres to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Torres was designated for assignment by the Mets in a surprise late-January move and subsequently elected to become a free agent. There was interest from the Asian market, but the 33-year-old right-hander opted for a Braves team that should allow him a semi-clear path to an Opening Day bullpen gig. Torres was excellent with the Mets in 2014 before struggling in 2015. He's a decent bet for a bounceback in 2016.
Feb 10 - 7:58 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that free agent reliever Carlos Torres is weighing interest from three teams.

Torres drew a lot of interest from teams in Asia, but he plans to stay in MLB. The 33-year-old posted a mediocre 4.68 ERA and 48/18 K/BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings last season, but he has been a useful pitcher in the past and makes sense as a potential bounceback target. The Yankees are among the teams who have reportedly expressed interest.
Feb 9 - 1:44 PM

Brandon Kuty of reports that the Yankees are among 20 teams who have reached out to free agent reliever Carlos Torres.

Torres passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment by the Mets last month. The 33-year-old posted a mediocre 4.68 ERA and 48/18 K/BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings last season, but his average fastball velocity was higher than ever before and he was an important piece in the Mets' bullpen in 2014. There's a chance he'll have to settle for a minor league deal, but it's worth noting that he has also drawn interest from teams in Asia.
Feb 3 - 3:04 PM

Carlos Torres has elected to become a free agent.

Torres was placed on waivers by the Mets last week and passed through unclaimed. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York suspects that he might now take his talents to Asia rather than settling for a minor league deal. Torres, 33, posted an ugly 4.68 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 48/18 K/BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings of relief last year for the Mets. He registered a cool 3.06 ERA across 97 innings for New York in 2014.
Feb 1 - 1:24 PM

Adam Rubin of reports that the Mets have placed Carlos Torres on waivers.

They were reportedly talking to multiple teams about a trade but were unable to make anything happen. Torres will undoubtedly be claimed off waivers, and his new team will be responsible for his $1.05 million salary.
Jan 29 - 5:54 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish hears multiple teams are in trade talks with the Mets regarding Carlos Torres.

Torres was designated for assignment last week, a bit of a surprise despite holding a 4.68 ERA in relief this past season. The 33-year-old will likely land in a spot where he'll be used in middle relief in the majors this season.
Jan 28 - 6:35 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post hears that the Twins "might have some interest" in Carlos Torres.

The Mets designated Torres for assignment last Friday, but it's not a surprise to hear he's drawing some trade interest. The right-hander has been a useful reliever the last three seasons in New York, posting a 3.59 ERA and 219/73 K/BB ratio over 241 innings while often going multiple frames in an appearance.
Jan 25 - 4:17 PM

Mets designated RHP Carlos Torres for assignment.

The two sides avoided arbitration last week by agreeing to a one-year pact, but with the addition of Antonio Bastardo, Torres became the odd-man out. As he's likely to be claimed on waivers, the Mets could soon try to work out a trade for the right-hander rather than letting him walk for nothing.
Jan 22 - 6:29 PM

Mets and RHP Carlos Torres avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.05 million contract.

Torres has been a valuable piece for the Mets the last three years, holding a 3.59 ERA while often going multiple innings at a time. He'll return to the same role in 2016.
Jan 15 - 12:54 PM

Carlos Torres (calf) tossed a scoreless frame in his return to the mound Tuesday.

Torres missed over a week of action with a sore left calf but is ready to go now. He holds a 4.79 ERA over 57 relief appearances for the Mets this season.
