Weekly Check In: Ronald Torreyes


Keeping with the trend of new faces to the Yankees organization in our weekly check in’s we head to the Yankees bench to check in with the man that beat out Robert Refsnyder for the final bench spot with the club. His name is Ronald Torreyes and after having dealt with 15 different transactions from the 2015 season and calendar year he may have finally found his niche in New York.

Torreyes like most bench pieces this early in the season hasn’t played all that much but it seems like manager Joe Girardi is willing to use him against left-handed pitching. Between the sample size of spring training and the first two weeks of the season Torreyes seems like he can hold his own with the bat and far exceeds the defense of Robert Refsnyder in the infield.

As much as this hurts me to say it looks like the Yankees knew what they were doing when they sent Refsnyder, my favorite prospect so I am a bit bias, down and kept Torreyes on the bench. It’s still early but, for now anyway, I was wrong and I’m willing to eat the crow that comes along with it.


Keep it up Ronald, as long as it benefits the team I am 100% okay with looking like an idiot.
