Major League Debut of Umpire Carlos Torres (37)
Torres is on the International League roster for the 2015 season, which is his third season in the IL and in Triple-A (2013-15 IL). He has also worked the Gulf Coast, New York-Penn, South Atlantic, Carolina, Southern and Arizona Fall Leagues, in addition to MLB Spring Training in March 2015.
Torres wears the uniform number 37 at the Major League level, which was last worn by Gary Darling, and makes his MLB debut at the age of 36. Torres presently resides in Acarigua, Venezuela and becomes the second Venezuelan umpire to officiate an MLB game (Manny Gonzalez, who also worked the IL).
