Mets News and Notes: Torres, Hairston, James, Pelfrey


Outfielder Andres Torres reported progress in the condition of his strained left
calf, but he said he still needs a few days to rest before he can return to action. A team doctor saw Torres on Wednesday. He has not undergone an MRI, but says the discomfort in his leg has lessened.

Outfielder Scott Hairston (oblique strain) swung a bat today for the first time since his injury. He plans to swing off a tee today, and hopes to take live batting practice by Saturday. After a few sessions of batting practice, he believes he can start playing games.

The team reassigned Chuck James to minor-league. The competition for the lefty specialist role in the bullpen has been whittle to three: Garrett Olson, Daniel Herrera and Josh Edgin. Tim Byrdak is still rehabbing his injured knee, and not expected to be ready for Opening Day.

Starter Mike Pelfrey’s right ankle was wrapped tightly as he walked through the clubhouse. He’s been nursing a sprained ankle all spring long.

Mets sign P Chuck James to a minor league deal


Seeking additional bullpen help and potential rotation depth, the Mets announced
Thursday that they have signed left-handed pitcher Chuck James to a Minor League contract and invited him to Spring Training.

James, 30, posted a 6.10 ERA during a brief stay in Minnesota's bullpen last summer, also compiling a 3-2 record, one save and a 2.30 ERA over 62 2/3 innings with the organization's Triple-A Rochester affiliate.

A Georgia native whom the Braves selected in the 20th round of the 2002 First-Year Player Draft, James once ranked amongst Atlanta's brightest young starting pitchers, winning 18 games with a 3.78 ERA as a rookie in 2006. But the left-hander stumbled in his sophomore season as injuries began derailing his career.
