Teach this kid an offspeed pitch that runs away from lefties and you have a loogy (since he can also locate a FB apparently).

That was my thinking. LOOGYs don't need to throw hard at all (Blevins doesn't get it much past 91, does he?).

Quote:
"We selected six pitchers out of those 11 picks," Tanous said. "We feel all of them, even Torres, down at the bottom that we took in the eighth round, is a starter. It's never in baseball, or any sport, when a player is just totally dominating his competition. He might be a little too good for that competition. I think what you have to do is rely on what stuff is coming out. He throws 88-92. He's got a plus breaking ball. I think it's fair to say his stuff would play anywhere. Would his statistics be as high? Probably not. This is a guy across the board you feel really good about how he matches up against the other players in your system or the players that you're drafting."

No surprise, but....

"Torres is also the 21st player during the Coach Doug Jones' era to sign professionally and the first to ink with the Mets."
