Some saw him as an infielder, maybe utility guy. Nice LH swing, intriguing bat. Didn't hit in the Cape but showed pop in the spring. Speed hasn't played yet but they'll try and play him in CF so that he'll improve his routes and get the speed to play up.

Great name too.

From MLB.com.

College bats with the potential to be five-tool players are hard to find, and this is exactly why Boss could be drafted early. Boss has above average speed for a third baseman and has good power that is created by great bat speed. He also has solid plate discipline and is able to draw walks consistently. He doesn't have the greatest hands and instincts at third but he does have enough arm strength and speed to handle an outfield corner position, a place where some scouts believe he will end up. Boss has performed very well against top competition, homering off of Texas A&M pitcher Michael Wacha.

Playing third base right now.


Michigan State junior third baseman Torsten Boss is trying not to think too much about next week's Major League Baseball draft. Baseball America has him ranked as the 10th third baseman, projected to be selected in the third or fourth round.
