News: Torres held the Twins scoreless in two frames during the Padres' road victory Wednesday. Impact: Upon his acquisition in the offseason, it was believed that the Padres held two legitimate setup options for Huston Street. However, Torres has only recorded four holds on the season, and after tallying double-digit innings in each of the first three months, he's been contained to situational duty since the calendar flipped to July. Since that time, he's appeared in 16 games yet completed just 9.1 innings, yielding three runs on 10 hits and seven walks to go with eight strikeouts. Following the trade deadline deal of Street to the Angels, Joaquin Benoit is comfortable in his role as the Padres' closer, while Kevin Quackenbush has settled into the primary setup role. Consequently, Torres holds little fantasy sway outside of his strikeout ability (8.23 K/9), which is modest at best from a reliever.(RotoWire, )
