Drafted in the 8th round (250th overall) by the New York Mets in 2016 (signed for $10,000)
Torres had as good of a season as he possibly could have. Granted, it was against Division II competition, but it's hard to walk away from his performance without taking a closer look. Over 14 starts, he went 11-0, tossing seven complete games as he racked up 116 innings. Torres struck out 162 batters and allowed just 61 hits and 24 walks all season. He allowed nine earned runs. Torres doesn't have explosive stuff, but he's lefthanded, pitches at 88-92 mph and shows scouts an average curveball at times. Torres is 5-foot-11 and undersized for a starter. He originally pitched for ASA College in New York, serving as the ace of the staff for two years before transferring to Tusculum. He could be picked in the top 10 rounds as an underslot senior sign.
