Mets | Carlos Torres to stay in rotation

New York Mets SP Carlos Torres will stay in the rotation and start against the Detroit Tigers Friday, Aug. 23. SP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) will have surgery in the next seven to 10 days to remove bone spurs in his right elbow and is likely to miss the rest of the year. Torres is 2-2 with a 3.00 ERA in 22 games this year, but he went 1-1 with a 6.43 ERA in his three starts.

Fantasy Tip: Torres gains some value based on the fact that he'll be in the rotation for a while, but nothing will be guaranteed once rosters expand in September. He's purely fodder for NL-only leagues.
