This is a continuation of the weekly series of of writing about a Cubs prospect profile. Early on, I will be writing about guys that Dave and I did not cover in our Prospect Ratings. Links for past ratings and past profiles at at the end. Additional links can be found at the end of the article.
Who is Ronald Torreyes?
Torreyes was signed out of Libertado de Berinas, Venezuela, by...
Brett Jackson had a Brett Jackson kind of game going 1-4 with a BB and two strike outs & a stolen base. Dave Sappelt was 3-4 and has turned his season around after a really poor start.
Ronald Torreyes hit 2-5 with a double and a pair of RBI's. 2012 pick Tim Saunders who is being groomed for a super utility role got 3 hits in 4 AB's. AJ Morris...
Beef Castle was 1-3 with a BB and his 6th HR of the year. Vitters went 1-5 with a SB which is a rarity and Jay Jackson continues to suck in every single role possible giving up 3 ER in .1 IP to lose the game.
Ronald Torreyes has resurrected his prospect status. After a horrible start he has been his usual contact heavy self hitting over .300 in both June...
Everybody had a pretty ****** game. Brett Jackson has now struck out in 20 straight games.
Logan Watkins was 2-4 with a sb, his 17th of the year.
Ronald Torreyes was 2-5 and is now batting .249. It looks like he is continuing to get back on track after a rough start. Rob Whitenack went 4.2 IP giving up 2 ER, 3 walks and striking out 3.
Its was hopefully...
Ronald Torreyes had four hits and Ryan Cuneo drove-in five runs with a three-run home run and a two-run single, leading the Daytona Cubs to a 10-3 victory over the San Jose Giants (San Francisco Giants Hi-A affiliate) on Field #3, and Cubs 2011 1st round draft pick Javier Baez smacked an opposite-field solo HR over the RF fence and onto 8th Street in the 3rd and ripped a line-drive...
The Cubs end up getting OF Dave Sappelt and INF Ronald Torreyes along with LHP Travis Wood for LHP Sean Marshall. Torreyes sounds like the most intriguing prospect of the group, but not a bad haul for a reliever in my opinion. Follow the comments starting from here for some great quotes that Cubster found on the new guys.
Keith Law is reporting that the two prospects in the Sean Marshall for Travis Wood deal are Dave Sappelt and Ronald Torreyes. If it is true, I will just say that I am in shock over this. I wouldn’t trade Travis Wood or Dave Sappelt straight up for one season of Sean Marshall, who I really like. I am sorry, but relievers simply aren’t worth that kind of value. To add in Ronald...
An idea started over at Project Prospect that I have borrowed because I think it gives some good insight into the players and what we can all see with them while watching the same video. Ronald Torreyes has done absolutely nothing but hit since signing with the Reds. The 18 year old has hit .364 between the Venezuelan Summer League, Arizona Rookie League and the Midwest League...
Ronald Torreyes may have spent the first half of the season in extended spring training, but what he was able to do over the second half of the season puts him at the top of my list at second base. The 18 year old burst onto the scene last year after demolishing the Venezuelan Summer League before coming to the US and hitting .349/.379/.494 for the AZL Reds as a 17 year old. Despite...
