Carlos Torres Comes off Yankees Board

The New York Yankees have not signed a major league free agent this season, the only team yet to do so, and the team just lost out on one MLB free agent they had their eye on. Recently the Yankees were interested in former New York Mets reliever Carlos Torres and had reportedly had discussions about a potential deal but those discussions never grew past their potential. Torres officially came off the board tonight going to the Atlanta Braves on a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. Possibly making this a major league deal from the Yankees could have gotten the job done but I guess we'll never know.

Torres reportedly turned down similar deals from the Yankees and Dodgers before signing with Atlanta. The Braves obviously give Torres the biggest shot at making the MLB roster so this deal makes sense. Nothing to see here, moving on.
