Plus bat speed; linear swing path; fluid swing; moderate barrel control; moderate hand-eye coordination; mild bat wrap; minimal load; moderate leg kick; up the middle approach; makes adjustments during at-bats to spin.
Below-average raw power, all pull-oriented; will add strength as he grows; mild leverage in the swing; in-game power will be line drive in nature.
4.35 to first in my viewing; lacks a second gear; baserunning IQ is high and it will help him take some extra bases, and steal a few extra bags but he won't be a big-time threat with his legs.
Fringe-average foot speed hinders mobility and range; shows aptitude for reading ball off the bat; advanced actions; gets overly flashy at times.
Plus arm strength with carry; accuracy gets loose on the run, missed down in my viewing when forced to throw on the move.

Torres is one of the youngest players in Low-A which makes his refined game that much more impressive. He has a good kind of aggressive approach in the batter's box and he manipulates the barrel well to get to spin and velocity alike. Torres has good instincts at short and he has the hands to play the position but limited foot speed hurts his range and might cause a need to move to third down the line where his plus arm-strength will still be an asset.
