St. Louis Cardinals and Cleveland swaps before trade deadline in three player deal
A Colombian native, the 18-year-old Torres batted .273 with four homers and 16 RBIs in 27 games in the Arizona Rookie League this season.
The St. Louis Cardinals sent minor league outfielder Oscar Mercado to the Cleveland Indians before Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline in return for outfielders Conner Capel and Jhon Torres.
Capel, 21, is the son of former major league pitcher Mike Capel and was a fifth-round pick by the Indians in 2016. He hit .261 with six homers, 44 RBIs and 15 stolen bases in 89 games with Class-A Lynchburg.
