Yorvit Torrealba will not be a Met.
“We do not have an agreement with Yorvit Torrealba and there are no ongoing negotiations with him or his agent,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said tonight.
The club had reached an agreement with Torrealba on a three-year, $14.4 million contract pending the passing of a physical, which was never announced. Torrealba has had shoulder problems the last two seasons and experienced difficulty throwing.
Maybe this opens the door for Paul Lo Duca’s return. Trade options include Baltimore’s Ramon Hernandez, Texas’ Gerald Laird and FloridaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Miguel Olivo, but working in Lo DucaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s favor is the Mets would prefer to spend their trade chips to acquire pitching.
