Gleyber Torres News
New York Yankees middle infielder Gleyber Torres' (ankle, wrist) ankle is doing well, but he underwent an MRI exam on his right wrist on Monday. His wrist is structurally sound, but he received a cortisone injection and is unlikely to swing a bat until Wednesday. Torres suffered a mild ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Houston Astros, and he's not in the starting lineup on Monday against the Oakland Athletics. The 25-year-old is also dealing with a bum right wrist, so there's a good chance he'll be out through at least Wednesday. Hopefully for his fantasy managers, the combination of the ankle and wrist injury won't affect his swing at the dish moving forward. Torres has been making much more hard contact in 2022 and is already up to 13 home runs.
New York Yankees middle infielder Gleyber Torres (ankle) is not in the starting lineup on Monday against the Oakland Athletics. Torres will take a seat after suffering a mild ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Houston Astros. There's a chance that he misses Tuesday's game as well, but the Yankees are confident that his injury isn't very serious. The 25-year-old Venezuelan is hitting just .250, but he's been more productive at the plate this year with 13 home runs, 32 RBI, 33 runs scored and four stolen bases in 228 at-bats so far for the Yanks. DJ LeMahieu is starting at the keystone and is hitting leadoff on Monday against A's right-hander Paul Blackburn. LeMahieu will be a fine DFS target on Monday in the leadoff spot.
New York Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres (ankle) turned his ankle while trying to return to third base on Sunday against the Houston Astros, and manager Aaron Boone said Torres' injury is a "mild ankle sprain." "He caught his spike and kind of rolled it over there at third," Boone said. "I'm hoping it scared him more than anything. We'll see what we have overnight and [Monday], but I don't expect it to be serious." Fantasy managers should consider the 25-year-old day-to-day for now, but don't be surprised if he's not in the starting lineup on Monday against the Oakland Athletics. While Torres is hitting a mediocre .250 on the season, he's made some adjustments in 2022 and has 13 home runs, 32 RBI and four stolen bases in 67 games played.
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.
