Luis Torrens May Miss 2015 w/ Shoulder Injury

UPDATE: It's official, Torrens is gone for the season after tearing his labrum in his right throw shoulder. Torrens will undergo surgery tomorrow to fix the issue.

What could possibly be the best catching prospect in the New York Yankees system could miss the entire 2015 season due to a shoulder injury. Luis Torrens is only 18 years old and missed two months of the 2014 season due to a shoulder strain and his right throwing shoulder may now have to go under the knife to fix. It is encouraging that Torrens hit well in the final months of the season after the surgery as one of the youngest players in the New York Penn League but he rested and rehabbed last time, he didn't have surgery.

This cannot be good for a kid and his development in his age 19 season, he turns 19 in May, to lose an entire season so let's hope for the best but prepare for the worse.


  1. This is terrible news. Not only for his development process, but more importantly, Daniel is going to have to drop him 10-15 spots in the Prospect Rankings next February because he got injured! (Just kidding)


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
