In a market that is desperate for relief pitching, the Pirates bullpen is getting scrutinized. A day after Salomon Torres had been mentioned in a possible trade to the Yankees, the Newark Star Ledger reported the Yankees are interested in the right-hander.
From 2004 to 2006, he was pretty good. Torres had a severely strained right elbow this season – along with some issues with the Pirates brass – but, he’s pitched OK since he’s returned to action this month.
This could be an interesting pick-up for New York – depending on the price, of course.
