Brewers Prospect To Watch At Spring Training: LHP Quintin Torres-Costa

The longest tenured minor leaguer out of the group with five years of experience, Quintin Torres-Costa is one of the most intriguing players to watch come spring training.

He pitched just 4.1 IP in 2019 as he was recovering from TJS, and had a 2.08 ERA in a very small sample size. He has a career minor league ERA of 3.25 with a 11.6 K/9 mark in over 220 innings of work.

The lefty last pitched in the Arizona Fall League in 2019 with the Glendale Desert Dogs appearing in nine games as a relief pitcher. In those nine innings of work he struck out an impressive 15 batters and only gave up two earned runs, so he finished his last game action on a high note.

Just over two years removed from Tommy John surgery, Quintin Torres-Costa is looking to get back to the good form that he was in prior to the major injury. Prior to the 2020 campaign, many thought he would make the major league squad at some point, but the chaos that was COVID-19 derailed those plans. I would bank on seeing QTC in 2021, and if he gives a good performance in Spring, it may be sooner than later for the Hawaii native.

“I’ve been drafted with them since 2015 and kind of went up through their whole entire ranks and entire system. It’s just an honor to be invited to the big league camp and get the opportunity to show what I can do and how I can contribute to the team.” Torres-Costa told KHON2 sports director Rob DeMello.

He’s not currently on the 40 man roster, but he’ll battle for a bullpen job and could earn one at some point.
