So it Seems Gleyber Torres is Done for 2017


The New York Yankees top prospect Gleyber Torres learned this week that his 2017 season is over. Torres will see his 2017 season end in Triple-A after learning that he will require Tommy John surgery in his left elbow. This should be a relatively minor surgery, all things considered of course, for Torres as the left elbow is his non-throwing elbow. Not to say that this couldn’t affect his hitting but I feel confident that he should be fine by the start of the 2018 season. Torres was on the short list of possible candidates to bump or replace Chase Headley at third base this season so like Bryan Van Dusen said yesterday, Headley can breathe a little easier now.

Have no fear though Yankees fans. All signs point to Torres being back and better than ever in 2018 and all at the ripe age of 21-years old. There’s a long road ahead of Torres in Yankees pinstripes, this is nothing more than a speed bump.


I hope everyone has a great day, especially you my wife. Hey you.
