Description: Padres reliever Alex Torres became the first player to wear a padded cap Saturday against the Dodgers. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: The caps were created to give pitchers more protection following recent head injuries to Brandon McCarthy, Alex Cobb and Aroldis Chapman. However, they haven't been popular among players because of how they look. Torres (1-0, 2.10 ERA) decided to wear one after he had a close call during spring training.
 
Hot6/15/2013 10:18:00 PM
Description: Rays lefty Alex Torres struck out four over 1 2/3 hitless innings to grab his second win of the season Saturday against the Royals.
Insight: The 25-year-old Torres had strong numbers as a starter at Triple-A, and he has been unhittable in middle relief since being called up at the start of June. Over 16 innings, he has fanned 23 batters and allowed three hits, three walks and zero earned runs in eight appearances this season.
 
6/1/2013 11:30:00 AM
Description: Left-hander Alex Torres has been brought up on Saturday to provide bullpen depth after the team was forced to use the bullpen for eight innings on Friday night due to rain delays.
Insight: The 25-year-old Torres has been in the minors since 2006 and isn't a top prospect like Saturday's starter Chris Archer, but he has cleared up the control issues that plagued him last season. He was 5-3 with a 3.52 ERA, 1.196 WHIP and 61 strikeouts in 46 innings pitched.
 
5/29/2013 6:49:00 PM
Description: Left-hander Alex Torres is one of two options the Rays are considering to start Friday along with Chris Archer.
Insight: The 25-year-old Torres has been in the minors since 2006 and isn't a top prospect like Archer, but he has cleared up the control issues that plagued him last season. After posting a 91/63 K/BB abd 7.30 ERA in 69 innings with Triple-A Durham in 2012, he has a 61/21 K/BB and a 3.52 ERA in 46 innings this season and should be added in most leagues if he's called up.
 
5/8/2013 3:59:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay Rays minor league starting pitching, Alex Torres is pitching very well of late, yielding zero runs and just four hits in his last two outings, while striking out 11 and walking one batter.
Insight: Torres has a 1.69 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in six minor league starts this season. The most likely spot would be for 32-year-old Roberto Hernandez who is struggling having yielded four or more runs in four of six outings.
 
4/24/2013 1:34:00 PM
Description: If the Tampa Bay Rays ever need to go to the minors for starting pitching, Alex Torres is doing good things for the Durham Bulls. In 16 innings, he's yielded just five hits, walked five and struck out 19 batters (1.69 ERA, 0.625 WHIP).
Insight: Unfortunately for 25-year-old left-handered Torres the Rays' starting rotation is strong and currently healthy. Barring injury he's likely to spend the entire season with the Bulls.
