Mets non-tender Andres Torres, Manny Acosta

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Having already chosen to non-tender Mike Pelfrey a contract for 2013, the New York Mets officially announced Andres Torres and Manny Acosta would suffer the same faith.

The New York Mets have officially decided to non-tender contracts in 2013 to outfielder Andres Torres and right-handed pitcher Manny Acosta, making both players free agents and free to sign anywhere, the Mets officially announced on Friday afternoon (via Marc Carig of Newsday).

Torres finds himself looking for a new home and a new organization to join just one year after the San Francisco Giants traded the outfielder to the Mets. At 34 years of age, Torres played in 134 games, batting just .230/.327/.337 in 434 plate appearances.

Acosta had a career worst season in 2012, posting a poor 6.46 ERA across 47 1/3 innings of work. The right-handed reliever struggled with his control, walking nearly five batters per nine innings of work.

Earlier today, the Mets also opted against tendering right-handed starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey a contract for 2013, making him a free-agent, too. All three players are now free agents, but there is a chance any of the three could return.
