Just as it seemed a promotion to the Bronx was imminent, Torres ended up needing Tommy John surgery in June. Fortunately, position players typically only require six months to return from the procedure. Consider that Carl Crawford went under the knife in August 2012 and was ready for Opening Day in 2013. Torres should begin the year at Triple-A after playing just 23 games there in 2017, but will be summoned to take over at second base as soon as the Yankees think he is ready, likely within the first couple months of the season. His best offensive tool is his ability to hit for a high average, but he should also provide 20-to-25 homer power with a handful of steals in his prime years. In addition to his plus hit tool, Torres is a patient hitter with the on-base skills to hit first or second, even in a stacked Yankees lineup. He could add eligibility at shortstop (his natural position) and/or third base if the Yankees utilize his defensive versatility.

  2. Gleyber Torres 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Torres was viewed as surplus for the Cubs, a team stacked up the middle of the diamond with young talent. The Yankees were more than happy to take him off Chicago's hands, though, as Torres was dealt to New York as part of the Aroldis Chapman trade. The teenager is just scratching the surface of his potential, having never played a game above High-A. Still, glimpses of future stardom were evident in 2016, as Torres slashed .270/.354/.421 with 11 home runs, 66 RBI and 21 steals as one of the younger players in the Florida State League. Torres has always had above-average speed, but the development of a power stroke would really take his game to new heights. The Yankees are hoping that Torres continues to flash that home-run power as he matures. Torres will likely start the 2017 campaign at Double-A, as it appears he is the shortstop of the future for the Yankees, with Jorge Mateo trying out other positions.
  3. Gleyber Torres 2016 Preseason Outlook
    This time last year, Torres was an 18-year-old infielder barely on the radar in the Cubs' system, but he shot up the prospect rankings in 2015, though that was partially due to the Cubs promoting many of their top prospects into key roles during the regular season. He isn't showing much power yet (just five home runs 669 at-bats), but he slashed .293/.353/.386 for Low-A South Bend before a brief promotion to High-A Myrtle Beach. His speed is an asset - he stole 22 bases in 35 attempts for South Bend - and he has shown he can take a walk. The Cubs can afford to be patient with him, but he could be a nice top-of-the-order infielder within a few years.
  4. Gleyber Torres 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Torres was one of the top international prospects when the Cubs signed him in 2013. He's also barely 18. While he's shown the ability to take a walk during his brief appearances at the lowest levels in the organization, it's a bit too early to project him for greatness. He has the potential to be a five-tool player, but he's years away from the majors and there are a number of young shortstops blocking his path at the big league level.
