Default Scouting report for Carlos Torres?

I see that he will be starting tonight against the Rays. Can someone familiar with him give me an overview of his stuff?

Thanks in advance.

Good fastball. Has a cutter and a decent curveball. Also has a changeup which isn't as good as his other offerings.

Dan Evans Sucks...I'll take Ken Williams any day of the week over that bum.

BA's take:

#24 Sox Prospect: "An unheralded 15th round pick in the 2004 draft, Torres used a strong senior season at Kansas St. to catch the White Sox' attention. He pitched at four colleges in four years....He has benefited from the stability provided in the Sox system, where the pitching coaches work well together. Torres began 2005 in extended spring training and ended the season with nine strong starts in low class A including a win in the SAL playoffs. He finished up with a strong showing in instructional league, where he went back to a full windup after working exclusively out of the stretch during the season. Torres as a live arm that delivers 92-93 MPH fastballs. He also has a solid slider and an improving changeup. Very disciplined and possessing a strong work ethic, he'll move up to high class A in 2006.
