2. C Luis Torrens

Earlier this year, the Cubs were rolling with a trio of catchers that included Yan Gomes, Tucker Barnhart and Luis Torrens. Barnhart and Torrens were both eventually designated for assignment because of the emergence of rookie Miguel Amaya. Torrens only lasted about a month with the team, and he struggled mightily at the plate with 5 total hits in 13 games.

After getting DFA'd on April 28th, Torrens was eventually sent to the Baltimore Orioles for cash where he met the same fate less than a week after signing. He then penned a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals and made some appearances with their Triple- A affiliate. He opted out of that deal and is now in the Seattle Mariners organization as of August 30th.

The 27-year-old won a job with the Cubs after a respectable Spring Training where he put up an OPS of 1.021. But the Venezuelan native could not keep the job and his time was properly given to the budding Miguel Amaya, who is starting to look like the long-term catcher for the team.
