Cisnero, 30, has 33 games of big-league experience with the 2013-14 Astros, for whom he worked to a 4.94 ERA with estimators to match. Cisnero spent much of the 2016-18 seasons in the Mexican and Independent leagues, where he ostensibly found a strikeout touch that had eluded him in seasons past. The hefty 6’3 righty’s set down nearly 11 per nine in the International League this season, though his longstanding command issues continue to linger.
Torres, 36 and an 11-year MLB vet, made just six appearances for the Tigers this season. He struck out eight while walking just one, but allowed hard contact over 42% of the time and struggled to keep the ball in the yard. In over 500 IP with six MLB organizations, Torres boasts a respectable 4.09 ERA with a very solid 44.1% grounder rate.
