Gleyber Torres News
New York Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres is once again batting leadoff for the team as they get set to take on the Cleveland Guardians and right-hander Aaron Civale in the fifth game of an American League Division Series matchup. Torres only logged 12 plate appearances as New York's leadoff hitter during the regular season, but he's hitting atop Aaron Boone's lineup for the third straight game on Monday. So far, he's collected three hits and a stolen base in 16 postseason plate appearances this year.
New York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres (illness) is starting at second base and is batting third in Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Tuesday against Cleveland Guardians right-hander Cal Quantrill. Torres wasn't available to close out the regular season, but he rested up last week and is ready to go for the team's first playoff game of 2022. The 25-year-old finished the year off strong, hitting .323 (31-for-96) with six home runs, 25 RBI, 16 runs scored and four stolen bases in 24 games dating back to Sept. 2. Overall, the two-time All-Star batted .257/.310/.451 with 24 home runs, 76 RBI, 73 runs scored and 10 stolen bases in 572 plate appearances and 140 games for the Yanks.
New York Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres (illness) remains out of the starting lineup for the regular season finale on Wednesday against the Texas Rangers. It will be Torres' fifth straight missed game to close out the regular season while he deals with an illness, but he should be ready to go for the start of the American League Division Series next week. The 25-year-old will finish his 2022 regulars season with a .257/.310/.451 slash line to go along with 24 home runs, 76 RBI, 73 runs scored and 10 stolen bases in 140 games played. DJ LeMahieu is getting the start at the keystone and is hitting leadoff on Wednesday, while Oswald Peraza is at shortstop and batting fifth against Rangers right-hander Glenn Otto.
New York Yankees shortstop Gleyber Torres was a big letdown in 2020. He managed to hit just three home runs over 42 games, slashing .243/.356/.368 along the way. It was an extremely surprising follow-up to his 38 home run campaign in 2019, when he appeared to be emerging as one of the league's top power hitters. Instead, we saw his barrel-rate drop from 10.1% in 2019 to just 3.7% in 2020 and his home run to fly ball rate fell from 21.5% in 2019 to 7.1% last year. Despite his massive power dropoff, he made positive strides in his plate discipline, lowering his strikeout rate from 21.4% in 2019 to 17.5% in 2020 and raising his walk rate from 7.9% in 2019 to 13.8% in 2020. The Yankees were plagued by injuries last year and the constant shuffling of the lineup may have had a negative effect on Torres' game, reducing his support system and allowing opposing pitchers to throw away from him. Torres turned 24 this offseason and he's a year removed from being targeted as a top-30 pick. Now, you can get him on the outskirts of the top-75, where he's a fantastic value. Last year he showed what his downside risk is, but his upside potential is an elite power hitter and he's certainly worth taking a chance on in the seventh round or even a bit earlier. Look for him to silence his doubters and top 30 home runs for the second time in three years in 2021.
