Torrens is the second Seattle player to land on the virus list in recent days. Outfielder Mitch Haniger was put on the COVID-19 list on Saturday after being tested positive.
Torrens was placed on the list where Seattle came after its first day off this season and ahead of the first game in a series with Texas. Seattle manager Scott Servais said the team’s replay coordinator and some other staff are dealing with the virus.
“We had to shuffle some things here a bit based on the COIVD situation over the last 24 to 48 hours,” Servais said.
Torrens had appeared in four games with three starts this season. He was 3-to-13 on the record, all singles. Torrens hit .243 with 15 homers and 47 RBIs in 108 games last season.
Seattle selected infielder Mike Ford of Triple-A Tacoma to take Torrens’ list spot. Ford was signed to a minor league contract in March. Ford appeared in 22 games last season for New York Yankees.
