Mets Activate Andres Torres From Disabled List

Mets center fielder Andres Torres was placed on the disabled list more than three weeks ago with a strained left calf.

Now he’s all better:

In Torres’ absence, Kirk Nieuwenheis has been playing center field, hitting quite well — .316/.381/.474 in 21 games — and making diving catches in the outfield that are getting him Web Gem notice on the Worldwide Leader.

But when a starting player returns from injury, generally he’s given back his original position. Most likely, Nieuwenheis will slide over to left field to replace the injured Jason Bay. Scott Hairston has been playing there; though he hit for the cycle Friday night, overall Hairston is hitting just .250/.283/.477 and isn’t really part of the Mets’ future, whiile Nieuwenheis is.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to keep typing “Nieuwenheis”? I’m done.

Mets Place Andres Torres On DL With Calf Injury

One day.

Or not even one day; that’s how long Andres Torres managed to play for the Mets before landing on their disabled list. He strained his left calf running for a fly ball and will be placed on the DL. From the Associated Press :

The injury is a recurrence of an old injury sustained last April in this game against the Cardinals:

Former Giants center fielder Andres Torres is headed to the Mets’ disabled list and back to the team’s spring training facility in Florida after reinjuring his left calf Thursday in a season-opening 1-0 win over the Braves in New York.

“I’m going to Port St. Lucie to begin rehabbing,” Torres said. “I’m going to see how I feel down there.”

The Mets have Friday off before resuming their series against the Braves on Saturday.
