Padres' Luis Torrens: Receives rare start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Torrens got the nod behind the dish and went 0-for-3 in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

It was the 21-year-old's first start since Aug. 13 and just his third start this month. The Padres are carrying three catchers and Torrens represents their worst offensive option (.171/.240/.216 in 124 plate appearances). The club is simply protecting the Rule 5 draft pick from being exposed on waivers, but fantasy owners shouldn't be burdened with the same responsibility.

Padres' Luis Torrens: Seeing semi-regular playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Torrens started at catcher Saturday -- his third start in five days -- going 1-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Giants.

Hector Sanchez was expected to see the majority of playing time vacated by Austin Hedges (concussion), but Torrens has found himself in the lineup every other day since the Padres' regular catcher was placed on the disabled list. The Rule 5 draft pick has gone 2-for-11 in those three starts, so he won't provide much help from a fantasy perspective. The Padres simply want to get a look at the 21-year-old while they have him stashed on their 25-man roster. Expect Sanchez to get the nod in Sunday's series finale against San Francisco.

Padres' Luis Torrens: Added to Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Torrens was a late addition to the lineup Wednesday against the Indians, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Austin Hedges was scratched due to neck stiffness, so Torrens will be thrown into emergency catching duty to replace him. Torrens will bat ninth as the Padres take on Cleveland right-hander Trevor Bauer.

Padres' Luis Torrens: Gets nod behind dish Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Torrens started in place of the injured Austin Hedges (thigh) on Wednesday, going 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in a win over the Cubs.

The Rule 5 draft pick was pushed into action and delivered just his second RBI in 69 plate appearances. Hedges wasn't expected to be held out long after leaving Tuesday's contest with an injury, but the club opted to give their starting catcher an extra day of rest with an off day scheduled Thursday. While he is expected to return to action Friday against the Tigers, Torrens could earn another start if Hedges isn't fully healed.

Padres' Luis Torrens: Put in tough spot at young age
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Torrens is 7-for-45 with two walks and nine strikeouts this season.

It's been a tough rookie season for Torrens, who never played past Single-A before being taken in the Rule 5 draft and traded to the Padres. Even in the minors, he was touted as a good defensive backstop with average skill at the plate, so the lack of offensive production against major-league pitching from the Venezuelan catcher doesn't come as a surprise. One day, Torrens will have experience and could be looked at as a viable fantasy option, but that day doesn't seem like it's going to be anytime this season.
