Carlos Torres

July 14, 2010

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Former Kansas State pitcher Carlos Torres was named the International League starting pitcher for the 2010 Triple-A All-Star Game on Wednesday at Coca-Cola Park.

The all-star appearance is the third of Torres' minor-league career, including his second-straight in Triple-A. The right-hander, who was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in 2004, is the latest former Wildcat to play in the Major Leagues when he saw action in eight games, including three starts, last season for the White Sox.

Torres is one of the top pitchers in the International League this year as he holds a 7-5 record and a 3.38 ERA. A three-time International League Pitcher of the Week honoree in 2010, Torres is second in the league in both innings pitched (112.0) and strikeouts (105), while he is eighth in wins and 11th in ERA.

The Triple-A All-Star Game, pitting the Pacific Coast League against the International League, is slated to begin at 6 p.m. (CT) and will be televised by MLB Network.
