    Kyle Farnsworth dispatched by Astros

    The Astros have designated for assignment veteran right-hander Kyle Farnsworth, who has been a disappointment. The 38-year-old Farnsworth, who signed with Houston six weeks ago after being let go by the Mets, has surrendered six earned runs on nine hits in his last 5 1/3 innings pitched. He is 0-3 with a 4.40 ERA and only 18 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings on the year, a far cry for a guy who was once of the top strikeout relievers in the game.

    Mets going 'game by game' with save chances

    Mets manager Terry Collins is making another change at closer. He told reporters Tuesday the closer situation will be handled "game by game" in part due to Kyle Farnsworth's heavy workload. Collins said Farnsworth, Jose Valverde, Jeurys Familia and Daisuke Matsuzaka could be under consideration for save opportunities.
