New York Mets to non-tender Mike Pelfrey; Andres Torres a maybe

The Mets may try to re-sign Pelfrey as a free agent.

The New York Mets are planning to non-tender injured right-hander Mike Pelfrey and may do the same with outfielder Andres Torres, reports Mike Puma of the NY Post:

The Mets may still attempt to re-sign the 28-year-old as a free agent, but it will be for significantly less money than he would have received in arbitration. After throwing nearly 200 innings a year from 2008-2011, Pelfrey managed just nineteen innings this season before before going down with a season-ending elbow injury.

The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in May and is not expected back by the beginning of next year. Pelfrey made just over $5.6 million in 2012, but should expect that to be cut at least in half this offseason.

The 34-year-old Torres, acquired in the offseason from the World Series-bound Giants, hit just .230/.327/.337 with three home runs in four hundred thirty-four plate appearances on the year. The Mets could retain Torres as a fourth outfielder next season, but it remains unclear whether the team is willing to pay him anywhere near the $2.7 million he earned in 2012.
