Scott Harris is all in on Spencer Torkelson

Spencer Torkelson’s name came up at the GM Meetings, and Harris said the team is “still bullish” on Tork.

Tork gets a nice vote of confidence from the new boss. It makes sense not to completely give up on a former No.1 overall pick after one lackluster season. But what if he flops again next year? It wouldn’t hurt to sign someone on a minor-league deal (let’s say a Jake Lamb or a Yoshi Tsutsugo) just in case he still hasn’t figured it out.

So we can scratch one position off Scott Harris’ to-do list. Hopefully it doesn’t come back to bite him.
