Tim Torres released
Tim Torres has been granted his release by the Revolution, reducing the roster to 26 players, which has to be at 25 active by June 1. Torres played in 21 games for York, batting .220 with five RBI. He is capable of playing just about any position on the field, and after 20 games as an outfielder/DH he started his final game for the Revolution at short in the first half of the doubleheader on May 25. While York is losing his defensive versatility, the club still has Eric Patterson in that super-utility role, an everyday player who allows for flexibility to move guys around by playing middle-infield and outfield.
Word on the street is Torres will end his playing career, in order to pursue a career in college coaching. Torres played professionally for eight years, in the Astros, Marlins, Rockies and Cubs organizations. No big league time, but he did reach Triple-A New Orleans and Iowa with the Marlins and Cubs respectively. He was drafted by the Astros in 2006 out of Oral Roberts University.
