Yorvit Torrealba Has Padres Offer

Catcher Yorvit Torrealba "has a one-year offer from the Padres in hand," tweets ESPN's Buster OlneyOlney adds that Torrealba "would like to engage the Mets, but to this point the Mets have indicated they don't have any money available to make something happen."  Previous reports had indicated the Mets were turning to Torrealba after missing out on Bengie Molina, despite Torrealba's grievance against them.  With question marks at catcher and in the rotation, Mets fans have to hope the team isn't out of money.

That said, the free agent catching market is bleak: Torrealba, Rod Barajas, and Jose Molina are the most notable names.
