The Seattle Mariners have outrighted catcher Luis Torrens to Triple-A Tacoma.
Torrens spent the 2021 and 2022 seasons with the Mariners but began the 2023 campaign with the Cubs before being re-acquired by Seattle. He hit .250 with four RBI across just 30 plate appearances in the big leagues in 2023.
The Mariners called up Luis Torrens from Triple-A Tacoma.
Torrens recently re-signed with the Mariners on a minor league deal. It is possible he keeps the backup catcher role if he plays well while Brian O'Keefe is away from the team on the paternity list.
The Chicago Cubs have traded catcher Luis Torrens to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for cash considerations.
The Cubs recently designated Torrens for assignment and managed to swing a trade before potentially losing him for nothing on the open market. He appeared in 13 games for the north siders this season, hitting .250 with a .618 OPS across 22 plate appearances. He'll provide Triple-A depth behind Adley Rutschman and James McCann at the big-league level.
Luis Torrens hit a pinch-hit home run against Oakland on Wednesday.
Torrens was just called up from Triple-A and pinch-hit for Abraham Toro with two outs in the eighth inning when he crushed a solo home run. It was the only Mariners run on the night as they have been held to just one run in back-to-back games against Oakland.
The Seattle Mariners designated Luis Torrens for assignment Thursday.
It is a brutal business sometimes as Torrens just came through with a pinch-hit, walk-off single for Seattle against the Yankees on Tuesday. Nonetheless, this was expected after the Mariners acquired Curt Casali at the trade deadline.
