Torres has a 4.31 ERA and 1.56 WHIP with 43 strikeouts across 54.1 innings. Torres was a reliable piece out of the bullpen in 2016, but has been prone to implosions throughout this season. The 34-year-old has given up three runs or more on four occasions in 2017, and is unlikely to see consistent high-leverage usage the rest of the way.
Torres has given up 16 runs (14 earned) on 26 hits across his last 18.1 innings of work. The veteran reliever allowed six home runs in that stretch, and continues to illustrate that his 2.73 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 82.1 innings last season was an aberration. Torres has been used in high-leverage situations regularly this year, but his 4.37 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 37 strikeouts across 45.1 innings suggest he is better suited for a lesser role.
Torres (3-4) pitched a scoreless eighth inning and was the pitcher of record when Milwaukee pulled ahead in the ninth frame of Thursday's win over St. Louis. Torres continues to benefit from his high-leverage role, but he probably doesn't deserve it or have the skill set to be pitching in one. He sports an underwhelming 4.58 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 6.9 K/9, and the veteran has also been tagged with four losses and three blown saves already this season.
Torres (2-4) blew his third save of the season by allowing five runs -- four earned -- on three hits and two walks in the ninth inning of Saturday's loss to the Dodgers. The 34-year-old veteran's ERA climbed from 3.10 to 4.20 with Saturday's implosion. He's pitching in high-leverage situations, but it might not be the best fit for his skill set. Additionally, his 7.2 K/9 and 1.57 WHIP aren't moving the fantasy needle either.
Torres allowed one hit while tossing a shutout inning to notch his first save Friday against the Cubs. Torres was protecting a three-run lead, and easily converted his first save of the year. This was a rare save opportunity for him, and he'll likely continue to work in a setup role unless the Brewers bullpen develops injury concerns.
