@NathanRode
@tpgmets Don't have a feel for his sign ability. I'd say it's possible he signs.

Perfect Game

Quote:
Sixto Torres is a 2014 LHP with a 6-5 205 lb. frame from Humacao, PR who attends International Baseball Academy. Very nice pitchers build, big and strong and loose with lots of projection. Full wind up with good tempo, long arm action with a mid to low 3/4's arm slot. Fastball topped at 88 mph with very good movement, nasty sink at times, will also cut fastball at times effectively.. Hard bite and tight spin on sweeping 2/8 curveball. Didn't throw change up but has in the past effectively. Threw strikes and dominated hitters with stuff and pitchability. High ceiling talent if he continues to improve. Good student. ~1/4/2014

Sixto Torres is a 2014 LHP with a 6-4 220 lb. frame from Jacksonville, FL. Big tall strong athletic build, long limbs. Full wind up, lots of arm and leg movement, deep arm action with pause in the back, high 3/4's arm slot, lots going on but has some deception. Fastball to 84 mph, has some projection with his velocity. 1/7 curveball with good shape at times, rolling break, some feel for straight change up. Mixes it up and tries to keep hitters off balance. ~6/13/2013
Quote:
Each time Sixto Torres (2015, Jacksonville, Fla.) takes the mound at Perfect Game events he seems to add velocity to his fastball, and that was once again the case at the 18u WWBA National Championship. After working in the 87-89 mph range the day prior in an inning of work, Torres came back the following day even stronger, working 89-91 mph and topping at 92. He was clearing his front side better than his previous outing and getting on top, working low in the zone with a quick arm. Along with his fastball, Torres showed a feel for a sharp slider at 79 mph with 2-to-8 shape and a nice changeup with late, fading action at 79 mph.

Why you gotta love draft scouting reports: video shows him throwing two fastballs for K's (so not get me over pitches): 87, then 88. But the report will be "throws 93" because one person says it because maybe one gun had him hit that once.


EDIT: Didn't even see ike posting the Perfect Game reports - those look far more accurate.

Tough sign? Love the pick though.

Those PG reports are from January 2014 and June 2013. I'd guess he's added some velo.

to me this is not a guy to get overly excited about, frankly. looks pretty thickly built and so probably not much physical projection. and the delivery was long and slow and the payoff (velocity) wasn't enough to justify it, imo.

Disagree. Nathan Rode personally scouts these guys (was maybe THE FIRST to mention Syndergaard as a HS arm to watch) and he both likes Torres and had him up to 93 this year. Rode is the bees knees when it comes to draft experts in regard to HS pitchers.

Interesting to see the $ on this one. I would guess $300,000 or more. Overall, great job adding this level of quality so late in the draft.
