2 hitless innings for Torres. Continues to show why he's by far our best reliever.

Well that fell apart quickly.

At least we'll always have that sweep of the DBacks!

By the way, as if EY wasn't awful enough at the plate, he's decided to add tons of strikeouts to his game this year. Fangraphs has batter strikeout rate stabilizing very quickly at 60 PA. EY is at 75 PA with a 29.3 K%. Awful. To some fans I know it looks like he's playing well (.361 OBP, 10-for-11 in stolen bases), but the sh!t is going to REALLY hit the fan once his BABIP (currently .368) and walk rate fall back to career norms.

Joel Sherman says Mets expect to bring up Bobby Abreu this week. Makes sense -- he has a late-April opt out and the Ike trade opened a roster spot for him. Have to imagine Kirk gets sent down. I think the only reason he was brought up over Abreu in the first place was because he was on the 40-man and could cover CF until Young returned; but now Young is back and the Ike deal opens a 40-man spot for Abreu.

Torres has been a pretty great reliever since he was brought up last season: 46.1 IP, 4.11 K/BB, 1.55 ERA, 3.16 FIP. Germen has also shown some promise (career 22.5 K%, 2.99 FIP). They are easily the best in-house candidates to close once Farnsworth implodes. They've been snooping around Hanrahan, so he's another option. He's probably worse than Carlos Torres honestly, but signing him at least moves everyone down the pecking order.
