Yankees' offense a bigger problem than Gleyber Torres not hustling

Aaron Boone said that he had a discussion with Torres about not running out a ground ball on Wednesday, but the manager is more focused on the team needing to break out of a team-wide slump.

The Yankees should stop experimenting at first base

The Yankees should stop experimenting at first base

Chris Pedota, NorthJersey.com via Imagn Content Services, LLC By using an outfielder at first base in the first two weeks, the Yankees sacrificed defense throughout the entire infield. One of the main narratives so far this season has been the Yankees’ lackluster defense. In 16 games, the Yankees have 12 errors (9th in the AL), and the team’s starters have accumulated -6 Outs Above Average (OAA) according to Statcast. The infield defense, moreover, has been particularly bad, with defensive miscues — most notably by shortstop Gleyber Torres, but at one point or...

Yankees recall Mike Ford from alternate site to replace Jay Bruce

Photo by Mike Stobe/ New York goes with the straightforward first base replacement. When Jay Bruce announced that he was retiring from baseball over the weekend, it prompted some speculation about how the Yankees might possibly replace him, with Luke Voit still on the shelf until at least mid-May. Tyler Wade was recently farmed out, and the team might have appreciated some late-game support for Gleyber Torres at shortstop, though recalling Wade would have meant essentially no reliable backup for DJ LeMahieu at first base. There was also the possibility that they could...

Dissecting Gio Urshela’s day at shortstop

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ Filling in for the dinged up Gleyber Torres, Gio Urshela played a perfectly fine shortstop against the Blue Jays on Tuesday. The Yankees converted their infield plans in an intriguing way when they promoted Rougned Odor and demoted Tyler Wade. Wade’s role on the team was predicated on the fact that he was the only other player on the roster capable of backing up Gleyber Torres at shortstop. Without him on the 26-man roster, a natural hole would be formed whenever Torres needs a day off — or so it appeared. During spring training, however, the...

Cubs: The Gleyber Torres-Aroldis Chapman trade looking better every day

In the wake of the Chicago Cubs winning the 2016 World Series, fans and pundits alike loved to re-hash the biggest trade the team made that season – trading a package of prospects headlined by Gleyber Torres to the New York Yankees in exchange for fireballing left-hander Aroldis Chapman.

NYY vs. TOR: Corey Kluber vs. T.J. Zeuch

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Can the Yankees pick up a series win over the Jays? After splitting the first two games in Dunedin, the Yankees and Blue Jays will wrap up their series in a Wednesday get away day afternoon game. To try and get the series win, the Yankees will send Corey Kluber to the mound. Last time out, Kluber struggled against the Rays, getting knocked out after 2.1 innings. On the other hand, his first start of the season came against the Blue Jays, where he was solid. Gleyber Torres was left out of the lineup yesterday after jamming his finger while sliding...

Analyzing Gleyber Torres’s strange start at the plate to 2021

Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/ The Yankees’ shortstop has struggled catching up to the heat. Much has been made about Gleyber Torres’s defense early on in 2021. He’s had a hard time acclimating to shortstop at the big league level, leading to questions about his long-term fit. However, there weren’t supposed to be serious questions about Torres’s bat. He’s a career 120 OPS+ hitter who has a 38-homer season to his credit and should only be growing at age 24. However, Torres’s offensive performance has been inconsistent since the abbreviated 2020 season. That...

NYY news: Gleyber’s finger forces him out of the lineup

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Gleyber Torres nursing a jammed ring finger; Billy Beane and Brian Cashman’s relationship goes well beyond baseball; MLB trade deadline moved up one day MLB.com | Bryan Hoch: Yankees shortstop Gleyber Torres was out of the lineup last night with a jammed ring finger. Torres, who is off to a very slow start at the plate, was injured while diving into a base during a pickoff play on Monday. A CT scan and X-rays showed no structural damage, but it is definitely a situation to monitor for manager Aaron Boone. With Tyler Wade on the taxi...

Dissecting Gleyber Torres’s early-season defensive struggles

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ After a rough 2020 in the field, 2021’s been even gloomier for Gleyber Torres. There were two outs in the top of the tenth on Wednesday when Pedro Severino stepped into the box against Chad Green, hoping to drive in Anthony Santander from third base to break the 2-2 tie between the Orioles and Yankees. On a 1-0 count, Severino put good wood on a low-and-away fastball, driving it 105 mph straight into the ground towards Gleyber Torres at short. With plenty of time — too much even — Torres fielded the ball on his heels, shuffled twice, and...

What should the Yankees do at shortstop?

Photo by Emilee Chinn/ Ideally, the first week of 2021 was a blip on the radar for Gleyber Torres. If it wasn’t? Well, then things get interesting. Coming into 2021 the season, numerous fans and writers had concerns over the Yankees’ starting rotation, and even the bullpen to an extent. The offense is pretty stacked from top-to-bottom, so no one batted an eye. Although it’s extremely early in the year, it’s the offense that has stalled at times and been the concern, while the pitching has been nothing less than lights out. These early issues are normal,...

RIP Earthworms: The Yankees and ground balls

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Analyzing the offense after one week of play. I was so excited for the start of the season. This was supposed to be the year that everything clicked — DJ LeMahieu continued his MVP-level play, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton would be healthy, and having bats like Gleyber Torres and Clint Frazier in the bottom half of the lineup was just ... ludicrous depth. Now we’re a week into the season, and I hope this sentence serves as an endearing caveat that It Is Early. However, a week in, the offense hasn’t really impressed. It...
