2) Luis Torrens

The Abe Simpson GIF applies to Luis Torrens. A newcomer to the Mets, he won’t last long. Out of options, Torrens is only with the Mets for however long they remain without Francisco Alvarez. Maybe he’ll get a big moment before he goes.

Torrens came to the Mets via trade with the New York Yankees and some solid numbers in Triple-A. The .279/.339/.468 slash line with 5 home runs and 19 RBI probably won’t translate into much big league success. And even if he did somehow end up with some big hits in a short period, it’s hard to see the Mets buying in and choosing him over Tomas Nido as the backup moving forward.

Acquiring Torrens probably had a lot to do with the performance of their minor league options. Hayden Senger, while a fine defender, isn’t a major league quality hitter. Joe Hudson, whom they picked up in a trade with the Chicago Cubs, isn’t much better if at all. Strategically, the Mets likely wanted to keep the 40-man roster spot open rather than toss those two aside. Torrens won’t be in high-demand on the waiver wire. Even if someone bites, it’s not a major loss.

Enjoy anything Torrens may offer the Mets. Keep him in mind for future games of Immaculate Grid.
