    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    Ronald Torreyes is always white-hot. A scout was once astonished after he swung and missed, only to realize the bat had in fact burnt to ash in his bare hands.
    "He looked like a surfer kid from SoCal," manager Dusty Baker says. "He didn't say much, but you could tell he was cool."

    I'm pretty sure major league organizations are not in the business of bringing over prospects illegally, therefor he has nothing to worry about.

    I think that was more a comment on Arizona's new racial profiling law.

    I know where it was directed at, but rather than turn it into a pointless political debate, I thought I'd point out the stuipity of the statement if taken at face value.

    Don't worry. I'm sure he'll break out of his slump sooner or later.

    I know I am getting wayyyyy ahead of myself, but it would be nice for the Reds to have a leadoff hitter that actually gets on base at a goodly clip.

    It would be nice, but from what I know about Torreyes (not that much mind you), he has too good of a bat to not be in the middle of the order.

    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    Torreyes' size suggests he's not a middle-of-the-lineup hitter. I think the most optimistic outcome to hope for is Brian Roberts.

    The way he has walked alot more then he strikes out the numbers so far remind me of Joe Morgan. With his build and extra base numbers.

    Ben Badler on Ronald Torreyes:

    OnBaseMachine @BenBadler You have any reports on #Reds prospect Ronald Torreyes?

    He's interesting. Not a big tools guy, but good hitter, surprising pop for his size

    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    Not much on tools from the number of extra base hits and SBs it looks like speed is a good tool. And seems to have a good eye at the plate

    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    Chances are Ben had never heard of him, went to MiLB.com, looked at his number and size and formed a quick eh opinion.

    He defiantly knows how to handle a bat and has lots of success as a amateur ballplayer. Defiantly someone I am excited to see develop.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...
