Torres' back feels better after taking swings
NEW YORK -- Center fielder Andres Torres took swings Sunday for the first time since back pain popped up Thursday and kept him out of the lineup the past three games, and said he felt better.

Torres hit soft tosses in the batting cage before the Mets' series finale against the Cubs, which manager Terry Collins said Torres could be available for, but cautioned, "I doubt he'll contribute much." Both Collins and Torres expect the switch-hitting outfielder to be ready after the All-Star break.

"When I come back, I'll be ready," Torres said.
