WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

The Pirates as a rule don’t give large bonuses to international pitchers, not since they signed Luis Heredia.  Torres got the largest bonus of any pitcher in their 2017-18 signing class.  He sits at 90 mph, and also throws a sinker, change and curve.  From the start as a pro he showed good command for a 17-year-old.

2018
DSL:  4-3-0, 2.61 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 51.2 IP, 2.4 BB/9, 5.7 K/9

The Pirates used Torres as a starter and in long relief.  In the end, he got in a good innings total and showed good command, without missing many bats.  He had no meaningful platoon split.

2019
R:  0-3-0, 6.75 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, 36.0 IP, 2.5 BB/9, 7.0 K/9

Torres made three starts and 11 relief appearances in the GCL.  His control was good, but he got hit extremely hard.  Opponents batted .315 and slugged .564 against him in a league where the averages were .238 and .345.

Torres stuff didn’t seem to play well in the GCL.  He’ll only be 19 throughout the 2020 season and could get a shot at Bristol.
