Torres pitched in 6 games (all starts) for Yomiuri in Japan last year and he was 1-2 with a 6.26 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP. He last pitched in the majors in 2010 with the White Sox. He has now pitched in 13 games (6 starts) in his first two years in the majors and he is 1-3 with a 6.86 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP. Torres will likely start the 2012 season in AAA for the Rockies.
