Bue Jays trade Minor Leaguer Torreyes
BOSTON -- The Blue Jays traded Minor League infielder Ronald Torreyes to the Dodgers on Friday afternoon in exchange for cash considerations.
Torreyes spent less than a month in Toronto's system after being acquired in a similar cash deal with the Astros. He appeared in 16 games for Double-A New Hampshire and hit .140 with nine RBIs.
The 22-year-old began his professional career in 2010 and spent five years with the Reds' Minor League system before becoming a bit of a journeyman. In the past four years, Torreyes has been with the Cubs, Astros, Blue Jays and now Dogers.
Torreyes is a career .299 hitter with 18 home runs and 231 RBIs in 537 Minor League games. Last year marked the first time he made it as high as Triple-A.
