Torres Leaves Game With An Injury

Mets center-fielder, Andres Torres, was injured this afternoon after misjudging a ball that ultimately rolled to the wall. While chasing the ball down he came up lame, apparently reinjuring the same calf muscle that plagued him all spring.

Torres immediately walked in from the infield and was Met on the infield dirty by the Mets' training staff. No official word yet from the team, but it would appear that they will have to call someone up from the minors to replace Torres, who needed two plus weeks to heal during the spring. Your likely call-ups would be either Kirk Nieuwenhuis or Matt Den Dekker.
