WSC Birth Years: Carlos Torres

Card #19 - Carlos Torres

Born: October 22, 1982

Carlos has impressed in his three Major League starts in 2009. Not only did he pick up his first win on September 3, 2009, he also made his first plate appearance. His pitching was thankfully better than his hitting. Carlos went seven strong innings, tossing six strikeouts, five hits and no walks, for his first win.

Torres seemed like a long shot to ever reach the Majors. He was drafted in the 15th round of the 2004 draft, 449th overall. He made an emergency start on July 22, 2009, for his MLB debut, replacing John Danks, who had a blister on the index finger of his pitching hand.

Carlos will be fighting for the fifth starting position in 2010.

Looks like Jhonny Nunez.

If it is, then the original picture was mislabeled. If it turns out to be Jhonny, then I will redo the card.

Can't count out those late round picks or undrafted dudes. They are the ones that have to work the hardest to make it.

That picture isn't Carlos Torres.

OK, the card will be redone shortly.
