    Chances are Ben had never heard of him, went to MiLB.com, looked at his number and size and formed a quick eh opinion.
    Agreed. And he's Baseball America's international guru......

    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.
    I defiantly agree with this post.

    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    Cristo Jesus de savior is now OPSing 1.047 in his first 8 games (5 Multi-hit) in the US. Has reached base in all 8 games. Props to OBM, found some pics of him and other Arizona league kids on http://fourseamimages.photoshelter.com/

    Torreyes looks like a freaking bat boy. I am doing the honors and dubbing him Ronald "Raton" (Mouse) Torreyes.

    Here are some pics of Raton...

    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    I am suprised that "Raton" isn't pulled by the fifth inning of every game in order to give him enough time to get home before being grounded.

    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    Photo of his follow through is nice. Great front side, torque and balance, and love the high level finish sans top hand. Back foot vs. strong front side shows he explodes very well into his swing.

    If you forward through that whole sequence after Torreyes you come upon some photos of Kyle Waldrop. That's a great site.

    Yeah I saw the pics of Waldrop and Arias. Both have big, broad frames. Lots of room to grow.

    Well I've lost a lot of hope in Torreyes, but Waldrop reminded me of a young Colby Rasmus. Give and take I guess.

    Why, because he's so small? If anything that's a good thing because if he's hitting this good at that size then imagine what he will do once he puts on some muscle and possibly grows a few inches.

    I know! I totally would have said 13. Those first two pictures don't do him any favors.

    Re: Ronald Torreyes

    I wonder how much more power Torreyes could add once he fills out his frame/gets stronger?.....I really like his upside.

    Can I ask what upside? I haven't seen any real scouting reports on him yet and just a few pictures of him with no video. What is his upside that has you really liking it?

    This. I think people realllly need to curb their enthusiasm with him. Before two months ago, no one knew who he was, and no one still does, just know his numbers. I know people aren't getting too far ahead, but still, its just the VSL and a few AZL at bats. I remember the same hype about Efrain Contreras a few years ago. Different things happen in Venezuela and the DR.
