A years-old grievance brought by catcher Yorvit Torrealba against the Mets finally has a verdict. And the Mets won Thursday.

Arbitrator Shyam Das has ruled the Mets did not back out of an official deal with Torrealba after coming close to a three-year, $14.4 million deal in November 2007.

According to the Associated Press report: "The terms signed by the team and Torrealba's representative said the deal was subject to a physical that was satisfactory to the Mets. The team concluded it had concerns about his throwing shoulder."

The hearing on the matter was heard in December 2009.
