Mets News and Notes: Torres, Byrdak, Minor League Releases


Outfielder Andres Torres played center field in a Minor League game Saturday for the first time since straining his left calf 12 days ago. Torres is scheduled to make another Minor League appearance Sunday, with the Mets still hopeful that he will avoid a disabled list stint to start the season.

Left-handed reliever Tim Byrdak walked a batter and allowed two runs in a Minor League game Saturday, his first live action since undergoing left knee surgery earlier this month. Byrdak is still hoping to be ready for Opening Day, though the Mets are preparing to carry Daniel Herrera on the roster if he is not.

The Mets on Saturday released Minor League infielder Justin Schafer and right-handed pitcher Michael Weldon.
