    De La Torre is a solid all-around talent with the tools to stick at shortstop. He's a near-average runner and shows smooth footwork in the infield. He flashes plus arm strength and can make the throw from deep in the hole, though his accuracy will need to improve as he climbs the ladder. He has quick hands and some loft in his swing and projects for average raw power. De La Torre competed on the national showcase circuit, and singled on a 97-mph fastball from Hunter Greene in the 2016 Under Armour All-America Game. While nothing about him jumps off the page, his ability to stick at shortstop and his projectable 6-foot-2 frame could appeal to teams in the fourth to sixth rounds. De La Torre is committed to Auburn.
