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