Luis Torrens 4th Best Prospect in NYPL

The New York Yankees catching prospect Luis Torrens has been ranked as the fourth best prospect in all of the New York Penn League. The Staten Island Yankees product is the only member of the organization to make the list after playing just 48 games with the SI Yanks. Torrens, just 18 years old, hit .270/.327/.405 with two home runs in 2014.

Torrens was praised for his defense behind the dish and especially for his throwing arm. Torrens really controlled the running game this season in Staten Island. While Torrens' offense is raw it shows signs of life and has many around the league intrigued, including the Yankees brass. Torrens may be the best catching prospect in the entire Yankees farm system, Gary Sanchez and John Ryan Murphy included.


  1. Damn, I was going to write this guy up, he is a stud!

  2. He looks to be a big stud. Too bad he is so far away

  3. Every thing I have read and the one time I saw him play, says he is the real deal. As we all know, things change between NYPL and AAA!

  4. Absolutely true. He still has a lot of growing to do which will either hurt and hinder or help him. At many other positions you don't worry as much but at catcher you tend to.


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