For those who think Torreyes is going to get bigger.... I think you are in for a surprise. He is a fraily framed guy. Sure, he might add a few pounds here or there, but if he tops 160 I would be very, very surprised. He is 5' 7". At 19 or not, there isn't much room for him to put on weight as a pro athlete.
If he weighs 140, even a gain of 20-25 pounds of mostly muscle will add much power.
Guy is 19, he'll certainly mature physically and add strength. If he takes care of himself, obviously.
