It didn't help Torres that he played on a poor high school team with a catcher who couldn't handle his stuff. That led to a 4-4 record, but the more telling numbers are a 0.38 ERA, 138 strikeouts in 55 innings and 13 hits allowed. Even with that, though, he was inconsistent with his velocity, fluctuating between a low of 86-88 mph to a high of 93-94. He showed outstanding stuff at times, with Kevin Brown-like run on his fastball and an 83 mph power curve--one of the best breaking pitches in the draft. He has a wiry frame (6-foot-2, 170), making him one of the most projectable players in the draft. A late charge moved him back into the top 10 picks.
