Arizona Fall League Weekly Check In: Gleyber Torres


On Monday we checked in with Greg Bird down in the Arizona Fall League as he continues to progress from his shoulder surgery that he had during spring training this season and yesterday we should have checked in with this man, Gleyber Torres, but we didn’t. We’ll make up for that today with a double dose of check in posts with the first going to Torres.

As you know Torres was acquired from the Chicago Cubs in a mid-season trade involving Aroldis Chapman and has joined a healthy stable of middle infielders in the Yankees farm system. Torres may be the best of the bunch though pushing fellow Scottsdale Scorpions and Yankees prospects like Tyler Wade to the outfield.


The Yankees wanted to see more of Torres and this is what they’ve seen thus far from their new star shortstop prospect. 

.250/.308/.583/.891 in three games and 12 at bats including his first home run yesterday afternoon. Torres has two RBI to go along with his home run and impressive triple slash numbers. I say impressive because there aren't many players in A-Ball down in Arizona right now so this is advanced talent he's facing every single at bat.
