Sims: Breaking Down Luis Torrens’ Season-Ending Injury

CBS—New York City—March 4, 2015

It was another blow for the Yankees on Tuesday when Luis Torrens, a minor league catcher and top prospect from the international class of 2012, was diagnosed with a season-ending labral tear in his right shoulder. Torrens, who will be 19 in May, is scheduled for surgery with Dr. David Altchek on March 5.

Touted for his defensive ability, quick release, throwing accuracy and strong arm, Torrens’ season at Class A Charleston last year was curtailed by a shoulder strain, and he achieved greater success finishing out the shortened season with Staten Island.
