Ronald Torreyes was claimed off waivers by the New York Yankees on Monday.
Torreyes has now been acquired by the Yankees for the second time in the past 20 days. The 23-year-old infielder will provide depth for the Yankees after spending time with the farm systems of the Blue Jays, Astros and Dodgers in 2015. Lane Adams was designated for assignment to make room for Torreyes on the 40-man roster.
Ronald Torreyes was designated for assignment Wednesday, MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports.
The team needed to clear a spot for newly acquired Jefry Marte on the 40-man, so Torreyes was the casualty. They had just picked him up on Monday, and obviously weren't that committed to the idea of him becoming a useful piece at the big league level. His only offensive tool that could be above average is his hit tool. With 339 games under his belt between Double-A and Triple-A, it is hard to get too excited about his prospects going forward, even though he is just 23 years old.
Ronald Torreyes was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Angels on Monday.
Torreyes had been traded to the Yankees earlier this month, and shortly after being designated for assignment, the 23-year-old infielder has found another new home. The Angels wanted some organizational infield depth, and they've got it with this man, as he has played all over the infield during his career. To make room for Torreyes on the 40-man roster, Bobby LaFromboise was designated for assignment.
Ronald Torreyes was designated for assignment on Friday, MLB.com's Jamal Collier reports.
Acquired from the Dodgers as part of the trade for Tyler Olson, Torreyes should spend the bulk of 2016 at Triple-A. A 23-year-old utility infielder, Torreyes has shown the ability to hit for a high average, but he had just four home runs and five steals in the upper levels of the Blue Jays, Astros and Dodgers minor league systems in 2015.
Ronald Torreyes was traded to the New York Yankees on Tuesday.
Torreyes was included in a package with left-handed pitcher Tyler Olson that sent infielder Rob Segedin and cash or a player to be named later to the Dodgers. He split 2015 between the minor league affiliates of the Astros, Blue Jays, and Dodgers that culminated in a short stint in the big leagues. His hitting numbers aren't fantastic, but he has experience playing all over the infield. The 23-year-old will likely act as organizational depth at infield for the Yankees.
