2021 Fantasy Outlook
Prior to last year, Torrens had very little on his MLB resume since being plucked out of Low-A in the Rule 5 draft before ahead of the 2017 season, throwing off his development. He now has at least one somewhat respectable season under his belt, as he hit .257/.325/.371 in 25 games for the Padres and Mariners last year, good for a nearly average 96 wRC+. That sample was of course quite small, but on after a strong .300/.373/.500 line in Double-A the year prior, it seems fairly safe to say that Torrens is finally major-league ready. We'll need more than 25 games of decent numbers at the plate to conclude that he's a particularly interesting fantasy asset, though, especially as the playing-time split between him and Tom Murphy this year is not yet clear. Defense could play a role, a potential concern given that Torrens graded out quite poorly as a framer last year despite a solid reputation in the minors. Read Past Outlooks
