Carlos Torres held the Cardinals in check on Wednesday evening in a clean top of the eighth inning. He walked one, and struck out another batter on his way to earning his twelfth hold of the season.
If Tyler Thornburg were to find himself injured or ineffective down the stretch as a closer, Torres is the guy you want. He currently has career highs in WHIP and ERA with 1.19 and 2.91 respectively, and he has a 63/27 strikeout to walk rate over 68 innings. The walk rate is a bit high, but there aren't a ton of better options in the Brewers bullpen.
Carlos Torres gave the Brewers a two inning save, pitching in both the eighth and the ninth innings to earn his second save in as many days. He walked one, and struck out one batter.
There's no need to rush to add Torres to your team, he simply stayed in the game after the Brewers added two more runs in the top of the ninth inning. Torres extended his scoreless appearances streak to four games with the effort.
Carlos Torres was the only Brewers pitcher to not allow a run to score on Thursday afternoon in a loss to the Cubs. He allowed one hit, one walk and struck out one batter over an inning of work.
It was Torres' second appearance without allowing an earned run. The veteran righty fits in the same boat as Chris Capuano, average work out of the bullpen but not much else in the way of strikeouts or ratio help.
Lefty reliever Carlos Torres was placed on waivers by the New York Mets, after failing to trade him. He became expendable, after the Mets signed Antonio Bastardo.
Torres pitched 97 innings in 73 appearances in 2014. He is a decent middle reliever, and the Mets expect him to be claimed by another team.
