Gleyber Torres News
New York Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres went 2-for-3 at the plate with a home run and a walk, losing to the Tigers 10-3 on Thursday. Torres homer marked his 25th of the season. Despite the Yankees having a tough campaign, the right-handed batter has been solid offensively but will not reach his career-high 38 home runs that he hit in 2019. The 24-year-old has slashed .275/.343/.472 and collected 62 RBI in 517 trips to the plate this year.
New York Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres (back) remains out of Saturday's starting lineup versus the Houston Astros. The 26-year-old was scratched on Friday due to a back issue. It doesn't sound like he'll require a trip to the injured list, which is good news for fantasy managers. Oswald Peraza will cover second base and bat eighth versus right-hander Hunter Brown on Saturday. The hope is that Torres will be back in the lineup within the next few days.
New York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres (back) was scratched from Friday's starting lineup against the Houston Astros with a back issue. With Torres now out, Oswald Peraza will move to second base and bat ninth, with Isiah Kiner-Falefa playing third base and hitting sixth against Astros right-hander Justin Verlander. Until we know more about Torres' back injury, fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day heading into the rest of the weekend. Check back on Saturday for an update on his condition. The 26-year-old Venezuelan is having a strong year in the Bronx in 2023, slashing .270/.339/.459 with 23 home runs, 57 RBI, 13 stolen bases and 74 runs scored in 503 at-bats. He finished the month of August hitting .327 (35-for-107) with seven long balls, eight doubles, 13 RBI, five stolen bases and 17 runs scored in 28 starts.
New York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres had his first relevant fantasy season in three years in 2022. He slashed .257/.310/.451 with 24 HRs, 73 runs, 76 RBI, and 10 stolen bases over 140 games. Torres' strikeout rate increased a bit to 22.6%, but his whiff rate was the second lowest of his career, and fantasy managers should expect another season in the range of his career 21.9% strikeout percentage. In terms of contact quality, the 26-year-old had his best season. Torres' 10.7% barrel rate (75th percentile), 90.4 MPH average exit velocity (76th percentile), and 45.3% hard-hit rate (77th percentile) were all career-best marks that led to a .244 xBA and .441 xSLG. He's been fly ball happy in the big leagues (30.3% fly ball rate), but with a solid bat-to-ball approach, the former top prospect should have no trouble hitting above .250 while offering north of 20 home runs as he did in 2022. Torres is going to bat in a powerful lineup again, while many predict he'll lead off as he did occasionally during the postseason, giving him plenty of opportunities to reach 150 RBI plus runs. And considering he's stolen 24 bases over the past two seasons, fantasy managers should view him as an all-around contributor who's revived his career heading into 2023. Torres offers reliable value at his ADP of 122, especially at a shallow second base position.
