32 978 Arizona Diamondbacks Riccio Torrez 2B Ariz.
Phoenix Brophy Prep infielder Riccio Torrez began the season as a preseason All-American after playing for USA Baseball's junior national team, going 6-for-14 to help the Americans win the bronze medal at the junior Pan Am championships in Mexico. An Arizona State signee, Torrez was panned this spring by scouts; three flatly called him a "college guy" as he lost some quickness and moved off shortstop to third base. He has a strong arm and strength in his swing but didn't perform this spring as he had in the past. He didn't measure up well in comparison to other prep infielders in the Four Corners area such as Nevada's Niko Vasquez and Colorado's Andy Burns.
