The New York Mets have broken off negotiations with free-agent catcher Yorvit Torrealba.
"We did not reach an agreement with Yorvit Torrealba. We are not in current ongoing negotiations with Yorvit Torrealba or his representatives," Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said Saturday night.
The Mets and Torrealba were close to a $14.4 million, three-year deal, but weren't able to finalize the pact.
The 29-year-old Torrealba hit .255 with eight homers and 47 RBIs in 113 games for the Colorado Rockies this season. In the postseason, he hit .256 with a home run and eight RBIs.
As for his future with the Rockies, General Manager Dan O'Dowd told Torrealba's agent he'd get back to him.
