Quote:
Listed at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, Torres is an imposing presence on the mound. The big lefty had a star turn at Area Code Games last year, throwing three scoreless, hitless innings. After an inconsistent start to this spring, he finished well and again showed an intriguing all-around package. Torres can touch 94 mph with his fastball, but more typically sits around 90 mph with some sink. His changeup and breaking ball both can be average offerings. His command remains inconsistent, though he generally works around the zone. Big, strong, quick-armed lefthanders don’t come along often and, though Torres has some rough edges to polish, a team will likely take a chance on him early enough in the draft to keep him from getting to Alabama State, where he is committed.


Turned 19 in March, so will be draft eligible in two years.

Mets obviously feel like LHed pitchers are going to be extinct after this year...

Really liked LHP Sixto Torres at Area Codes last summer. Loose, easy. Up to 93 this spring, plus breaker at times. #mlbdraft #Mets

This might be a tough sign. I'd like to see us draft several prep guys at this level and see if we can sign one or two.

My favorite pick of the day, possibly of the whole draft. Not sure if they have enough $ to sign him, but he is in the same class with the early LH HS picks.
