Luis Torrens: Elects free agency
Torrens elected to become a free agent Friday.
Torrens was pushed off the Mariners' 40-man roster Tuesday and opted to reject an outright assignment to Triple-A Tacoma. He's a career .227/.289/.354 hitter in 807 major-league plate appearances, but the 27-year-old could get a look as catching depth with some other organization.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Luis Torrens: Outrighted off 40-man roster
Seattle sent Torrens outright to Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.

Mariners' Luis Torrens: Summoned from Triple-A
The Mariners selected Torrens' contract from Triple-A Tacoma prior to Tuesday's game against the Angels.
Torrens has spent the majority of the past few seasons as a member of the Mariners organization, and he'll return to the big leagues after getting released by the Nationals in July and signing a minor-league deal with Seattle a couple weeks ago. Brian O'Keefe was placed on the paternity list in a corresponding move, so Torrens could be sent back to Triple-A in a few days after O'Keefe rejoins the club.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Luis Torrens: Inks minors deal with Seattle
Torrens signed a minor-league contract Wednesday with the Mariners.
Torrens has reported to Triple-A Tacoma and will serve as organizational depth at catcher down the stretch. The 27-year-old slashed .239/.297/.388 in 181 major-league games for Seattle between 2020-2022. He had brief stints earlier this summer with the Cubs and the Triple-A affiliate of the Nationals....

Luis Torrens: Reaches free agency
The Nationals released Torrens on July 1.
Torrens is now on the move from his third organization of the season, as the Cubs previously traded him to the Orioles in May before Baltimore released him shortly thereafter. After catching on with Washington on a minor-league deal, Torrens slashed .258/.311/.470 over 19 games with Triple-A Rochester before receiving his walking papers.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Luis Torrens: Signs minors deal with Nats

Torrens will join the roster at Triple-A Rochester. The 27-year-old catcher slashed .250/.318/.300 over 13 major-league games earlier this season with the Cubs before then spending less than a week in the Orioles organization. He's a career .227/.289/.352 hitter in the bigs.... See More ... See Less
Luis Torrens: Hits open market
Torrens elected free agency after clearing waivers Sunday, Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports.
Rather than sticking around in the Baltimore organization at Triple-A Norfolk, Torrens will seek a fresh start elsewhere after he was moved off the 40-man roster earlier this month. After being acquired in a trade with the Cubs on May 3, Torrens didn't appear in any games for the Orioles during his six-day stint in the majors.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Luis Torrens: Moved off 40-man roster
The Orioles designated Torrens for assignment Tuesday.
Baltimore just acquired Torrens from the Cubs last week in exchange for cash considerations, but he's now been removed from both the 26-man and 40-man rosters. The 27-year-old catcher did not appear in a game during his short time with the O's.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Luis Torrens: Traded to Orioles
The Orioles acquired Torrens from the Cubs on Wednesday in exchange for cash considerations, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.
Torrens will move on to the fifth different organization of his career after the Cubs designated him for assignment last week. Since the 27-year-old journeyman catcher doesn't have any minor-league options remaining, he'll eventually have to be added to the Orioles' 26-man active roster. Once activated, Torrens will serve as a No. 3 backstop behind Adley Rutschman and James McCann, and as a possible depth option at first base or designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Luis Torrens: Designated for assignment
Torrens was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Friday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.
The 26-year-old backstop put together a .618 OPS across 22 plate appearances and becomes a roster casualty following the reinstatement of Cody Bellinger from the paternity list Friday. Torrens could draw interest from teams in search of organizational depth behind the plate.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Luis Torrens: Slots in as DH
Torrens is starting as the designated hitter and batting seventh in Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
Torrens has appeared in 12 games so far and has looked good with his limited chances, slashing .313/./389/.375 across 16 at-bats. He's been better against lefties than righties during his career, so the matchup Sunday against Los Angeles starter Clayton Kershaw makes sense. Torrens will likely slide back to the bench in the team's next game Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Luis Torrens: Gets start as DH
Torrens is the designated hitter and batting eighth for Sunday's game against the Brewers, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Torrens has shown a propensity for hitting southpaws better than righties throughout his career, and he could see regular playing time against left-handed pitching if he gets off to a strong start to begin 2023. It's his first time in the starting lineup as a member of the Cubs.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Luis Torrens: Selected to CHC roster
Torrens had his contract selected from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The 26-year-old will open the 2023 regular season as the third catcher for the Cubs, behind the platoon of Tucker Barnhart and Yan Gomes. Torrens batted just .225/.283/.298 over 166 major-league plate appearances last year with the Mariners. Seattle non-tendered him in November.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Luis Torrens: Expected to make roster
Torrens is expected to make the Cubs' Opening Day roster, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.
Tucker Barnhart and Yan Gomes will be 1B and 1B at catcher for the Cubs, but the team wants to keep Torrens around as a third catcher and designated hitter option. The 26-year-old has a 1.172 OPS with two homers this spring but has just a career .642 OPS over parts of five major-league seasons.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Luis Torrens: Goes deep twice Tuesday
Torrens went 2-for-2 with two solo home runs in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Rangers.
The power display was a bit unexpected, as Torrens had only three home runs in 151 at-bats with Seattle last season. However, the veteran backstop did go deep 15 times in 2021, so he has shown off some pop in his career. Torrens is likely third in Chicago's catching pecking order behind Yan Gomes and Tucker Barnhart, so his fantasy value will be limited unless he's able to move up the depth chart. He's on a minor-league deal and could start the year with Triple-A Iowa, though the Cubs may decide to carry three catchers in the early going.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Luis Torrens: Finds work with North Siders
Torrens signed Wednesday with the Cubs on a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to MLB spring training.
The Cubs will enter spring training with veterans Yan Gomes and Tucker Barnhart entrenched as the team's top two backstops, but Torrens could have an opportunity to break camp with the big club if Chicago elects to carry three catchers into Opening Day or if Gomes or Barnhart succumbs to an injury. Torrens logged 166 plate appearances in the big leagues with the Mariners in 2022, slashing .225/.283/.298 with three home runs, 15 RBI and 13 runs.... See More ... See Less
Luis Torrens: Non-tendered by Seattle
The Mariners declined to tender Torrens a contract for 2023, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

Mariners' Luis Torrens: Slugs homer in finale
Torrens went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Tigers.
Torrens put Seattle on top 4-3 with a homer off lefty starter Tyler Alexander with one out in the sixth inning. The catcher particularly struggled in road games during 2022, posting a .525 OPS over 84 plate appearances compared to a .638 OPS over 82 plate appearances at home.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Luis Torrens: Belts pinch-hit homer in return
Torrens, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Tacoma earlier in the day, hit a pinch-hit, solo home run in a loss to the Athletics on Wednesday.
The veteran was summoned to hit for Abraham Toro with two out in the eighth inning and put the Mariners' only run of the game on the board via a 376-foot solo shot to right field. Torrens hit well for the Rainiers after he was outrighted to the Triple-A club on Aug. 14, and Wednesday's homer pushed his major-league slash line this year to .220/.268/.280 across 142 plate appearances....
