Mets keeping closer options open
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Mets inserted Kyle Farnsworth into the closing role this weekend, but general manager Sandy Alderson is keeping his options open regarding the role moving forward, including potentially using Carlos Torres or the recently removed Jose Valverde in the ninth inning at some point, the Star-Ledger reports.

"In my view we’ve got a lot of guys that are sort of on a par," Sandy Alderson regarding his comfort level with Farnsworth as closer. "Valverde pitches a little differently than he does over the first four, five outings, there’s no reason he can’t be as effective as he was yesterday. Torres has been very good for us. The nice thing about Carlos is that he can go more than one inning typically. So we’ll see how it goes with Farnsworth. I like the variety of options we may have going forward. The key is for guys to get better and we’ll also see how things develop at Vegas."

The Mets will likely stick with Farnsworth as long as he remains productive. He has given up just one earned run in 8 1/3 innings while striking out six and walking two.

Jose Valverde no longer the Mets' closer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets manager Terry Collins announced Sunday he's taking Jose Valverde out of the closer's role and replacing him with Kyle Farnsworth. 

"I'm going to close with Farnsworth right now," Collins said Sunday, per MLB.com. "I talked with Jose about it. I know he's still got the stuff to get people out. I want him to start using his other pitches a little bit. His fastball is certainly not 97 [mph] anymore, but it's good enough. He's just got to mix up some pitches."

After opening the season with a 0.00 ERA and two saves in his first five appearances, Valverde has a 15.00 ERA and one blown save in his last three appearances. Valverde has given up eight runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks in his last three outings. He's also given up four home runs in three innings in that span.

"It's a part of the game," Valverde said of his recent struggles. "There's nothing you can do. It's over already. You know what I mean? It's a new game today. Try to win today, and that's it."

Jose Valverde struggles Saturday, could be out as closer
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets pitcher Jose Valverde surrendered a three-run home run in a nonsave situation in his team's 7-5 loss to the Braves Saturday, and it appears manager Terry Collins is ready to make a change in the closer role, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

All three of the runs charged to Valverde were unearned due to an error the pitcher made on a bunt, and with three straight ugly outings to his credit, the closer sounds like he'll be removed from a ninth-inning role. Kyle Farnsworth and Gonzalez Germen seem like the most likely candidates to inherit closing duties.

Jose Valverde gets vote of confidence Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets manager Terry Collins said after Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks that Jose Valverde will continue to pitch in save situations moving forward, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

Valverde was used in a nonsave situation Wednesday and gave up two solo home runs before slamming the door on the Diamondbacks. He also surrendered a game-tying three-run home run in his previous appearance Saturday.

Jose Valverde surrenders two runs in nonsave situation
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets pitcher Jose Valverde pitched the ninth inning in a nonsave situation Wednesday and gave up two earned runs on three hits while striking out one and surrendering two solo home runs in his team's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

After opening the season with five scoreless appearances, Valverde has allowed five earned runs and three home runs over two innings in his last two games. He'll have to turn things around quickly if he wants to remain the team's preferred option in save situations.
