Torres has been a key cog in the heart of the order for Cal Poly's best teams in its Division I history over the last two years (the school was NCAA Division II until 1995). A knee injury hampered him in the fall and slowed him down early in the spring, but as he has returned to full strength his bat has come around. His best tool is his above-average raw power, and he also has feel for hitting. He can handle fastballs and recognize offspeed pitches, and he has shown the ability to drive balls from gap to gap, giving him a chance to be an average hitter. Scouts like his blue-collar approach and high energy level. His arm draws average grades from scouts, who project him as an average left fielder in pro ball.
