Carlos Torres blew a save in epic fashion, giving up a grand slam and five runs -- four earned -- and was charged with a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.
Closer Corey Knebel had pitched two days in a row and blew a save last night, so Torres was called upon to pitch the ninth inning today and protect a three-run lead. He got the first guy out, but then things went south in a hurry. Next came a walk, an error and a single to load the bases. Torres walked Cody Bellinger to force in a run, then hung a breaking ball that Chris Taylor deposited beyond the center field wall for a grand slam. Torres probably won't see any more save chances in the near future. He has a 4.20 ERA with 24 strikeouts in 30 innings. Last year he turned in a swell 2.73 ERA in 82 1/3 innings pitched.

Date:

Carlos Torres retired all three Cubs' hitters he faced in the ninth inning on Friday, recording his first save of the season.

It's unclear if Brewers' manager Craig Counsell went away from Corey Knebel because he had worked on Thursday night, or if it's a full-blown committee approach to the bullpen at the moment. Either way, it doesn't look like Torres has much relevance in mixed leagues unless holds are a category.
May 19 - 7:58 PM

Brewers and RHP Carlos Torres avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.175 million contract.

Torres held a 2.73 ERA out of the Brewers' bullpen last season. He was eligible for arbitration for the second time.
Jan 13 - 2:46 PM

Carlos Torres got the surprise save by pitching a perfect 13th inning of Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Braves.

Torres breezed through a 1-2-3 inning to secure his first save since 2014. He's been a workhorse for the Brewers' bullpen, as he's already covered 23 1/3 innings and has a respectable 3.47 ERA with 22 strikeouts.

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.

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.
Sat, Apr 2, 2016 10:09:00 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.

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.
Thu, Mar 31, 2016 02:28:00 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.
Wed, Feb 10, 2016 07:58:00 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.
Tue, Feb 9, 2016 01:44:00 PM

Brandon Kuty of NJ.com 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.

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.
Mon, Feb 1, 2016 01:24:00 PM

Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com 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.
Fri, Jan 29, 2016 05:54:00 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.
Thu, Jan 28, 2016 06:35:00 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.
