Former major leaguer Tony Torcato agrees to terms on 2006 contract with Chico
Tony Torcato CHICO, CALIF â€" With less than three weeks before the start of spring training, the Chico Outlaws Thursday made another big off-season move with the announcement that former San Francisco Giants infielder-outfielder Tony Torcato has agreed to terms to play in Chico in 2006. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Torcato will join ex-Giant and Golden Baseball League MVP Desi Wilson on an Outlaws roster that has to be regarded as one of the strongest in the league.
“We are absolutely thrilled Tony is coming to Chico,†Outlaws general manager Bob Linscheid said Thursday. “To land a player of his caliber this late in the game is incredible.
...
As recently as last year Tony has shown he can hit at the big league level, and when he became available it was a no-brainer to bring him on board. I know our fans our going to enjoy seeing Tony in an Outlaws uniform this year.â€
The 26-year-old Torcato enters his ninth professional season, most of which has been spent in the majors or at the triple-A level. A prep star at nearby Woodland High School, Tony was San Francisco’s first round pick (and 19th overall) in the 1998 amateur draft and quickly worked his way up the Giants minor league system. He made his major league debut on July 26, 2002 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, delivering a single off Hideo Nomo.
Torcato has split each of the last four seasons between San Francisco and triple-A Fresno. Last year Tony batted .269 with 10 homers and 57 runs batted in for the Grizzlies; in 11 games with the Giants, he hit .273. Torcato began 2006 playing for the BBC Orioles (Grosseto, Italy) of the Italian Baseball League, but decided he wanted to once again play in the United States, which led to his contacting the Outlaws. In 43 big league games with the Giants, Tony batted .298 with no home runs and three runs batted in. In eight minor league seasons, Torcato owns a career .299 batting average with 48 home runs and 495 RBI. His best year as a pro came in 2000 when he hit .341 and drove in 88 runs for the single-A San Jose Giants.
