My player projections continue around the outfield with...
Andres Torres, CFThis offseason, the Mets traded Angel Pagan to the San Francisco Baseball Giants for promising relief pitcher Ramon Ramirez.  In the deal, they also picked up a center fielder (after all, somebody has to play there).  So who is Andres Torres?The Mets hope a change of scenery will bring back the Torres of 2010 (just as the Giants hope a change of scenery will bring back the Pagan of 2010).  During the Giants’ run to the World Series, Torres went .268/.343/.479 with 16 home runs and 26 stolen bases.  During an injury-plagued 2011, Torres’s numbers dropped significantly (.221/.312/.330).In the field, the Mets made a slight upgrade, from Pagan (-1.7 dWAR in 2011) to Torres (0.5 dWAR in 2011).  And Torres brings post-season experience to the table, even if he may not need to use it this year.With Kirk Niewenhuis and Matt Den Dekker on the way up, Torres may just be a placeholder.  But for now, he’s the team’s most practical option to start the season in center field.Projection: .244, 10 HR, 47 RBIFanGraphs: .254, 7, 49 RBI
