Gleyber Torres (Cheryl Pursell)


Yankees Option Torres, Higashioka

The New York Yankees have announced that infielder Gleyber Torres and catcher Kyle Higashioka have been optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and reassigned the pair of prospects to minor league camp. New York’s roster now stands at 47 players.

Torres is the Yankees top prospect and one of the top five in all of Major League Baseball. The Venezuelan native was given a chance to win the starting second base job this spring but couldn’t shave off the rust from missing the second half of 2017. Gleyber sustained a torn UCL in his left elbow that required season-ending Tommy John surgery. The 21-year old batted .160 in 25 spring training at bats.

Higashioka performed well this spring playing stellar defense and hitting .333 this spring. In 15 at bats, the Huntington Beach, California native collected five hits, two doubles, and scored six runs.
