    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.

      Not a big fan of Torres but what’s appealing about him is his 94 appearances last year (of course, he suffered a strained elbow this season). Considering the way the pen is used in the Bronx, a guy who can pitch every effing day fairly effectively is likely to survive the summer. Likely, that is.

      The clubs have made trades at the deadline before. But I think Torres is the wrong target. Damaso Marte has been eating up lefties this year and would be a good replacement for Villone or Myers.
