Andrés "Yungo" Torres Jr. (born January 26, 1978 in Aguada, Puerto Rico) is a Major League Baseball outfielder with the San Francisco Giants. He has also played for the Detroit Tigers and the Texas Rangers.

Torres attended Dr. Carlos Gonzalez High School and Miami-Dade Community College. He was a track and field star at Miami Dade, running the 100 meters in 10.37 seconds, the second fastest recorded 100 meter time for all major league baseball players, behind Deion Sanders' 10.26. He played very little baseball as a child in Puerto Rico, and did not become serious about becoming a professional baseball player until he was 18. In 1997, the Florida Marlins drafted him in the twenty-third round of the MLB Draft, but he chose not to sign. He was then drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the fourth round of the 1998 MLB Draft, and that time he signed.

Plan A Films is producing a feature length documentary about Torres titled Gigante. The film is directed by Sundance Award-winning director Chusy Haney-Jardine.
