MLB Rumors: Giants Agree to Minor League Contract With Carlos Torres

The Giants reportedly are adding a veteran right-handed pitcher in Carlos Torres.

According to MLB Trade Rumors' Steve Adams, Torres will be signing a minor league deal after he elected free agency over an outright with the Minnesota Twins. Adams also reported Torres will head straight to Triple-A Sacramento.

The 36-year-old is in his decade MLB season. But it's his Triple-A numbers are ones that have stood out.

In 48 1/3 innings across three teams, he's allowed 45 hits and 15 runs with a 2.79 ERA. He's also limiting batters to a .254 average including his short stint with the San Diego Padres' Triple-A affiliate limiting hitters to a .226 average, so it appears he can handle the hitter's haven known as the Pacific Coast League rather well.

Following the Giants' pitching moves around the trade deadline, Torres could make for an option down the stretch. Although he hasn't pitched in a major league game since June 16 with the Tigers when he tossed just one inning.
