Gleyber Torres Improving At Shortstop

New York Yankees shortstop Gleyber Torres has had a rough spring training defensively with five errors at shortstop so far but is confident that his fielding will improve significantly before the start of the season. Torres split time between second base and shortstop last season, but with infielder D.J. Lemahieu taking over the starting second base job this year, Torres is slated to be the everyday shortstop in 2020. Regardless of how well he plays on defense, Torres will likely receive everyday playing time thanks to his bat. Torres posted an .871 OPS last year with a better than average 21.4% strikeout rate, and his .296 BABIP and .497 xSLG indicate that his performance should largely be repeatable if not improved upon in 2020. Fantasy owners should expect Torres to be an elite option at shortstop this season, regardless of how poor he is defensively.

Gleyber Torres Hits First Spring Training Home Run

New York Yankees shortstopGleyber Torreslaunched his first spring training home run of 2020 with a three-run shot on Saturday. Torres followed up his strong rookie season with an impressive .278/.337/.535 slash line last year and should be an elite fantasy shortstop again in 2020. Torres improved his plate approach last season by holding his chase rate effectively constant at 35.1% while increasing his z-swing rate from 68.7% to 76.3%. That adjustment helped push Tores strikeout rate down nearly four points to 21.4%. With a still strong .406 xwOBA on contact, Torress improved plate discipline should help fuel another season with an OPS around .900, so fantasy owners should feel comfortable drafting him in early rounds.
