Torres (elbow) was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

Torres was able to avoid structural damage to his elbow after X-rays following Saturday's game determined he had suffered a hyperextension, but the Yankees have yet to release a timetable for his return beyond ruling him out for at least the next week. The injury could very well delay any promotion of the Yankees' top prospect until after the All-Star break, affording incumbent third baseman Chase Headley some time to get dialed in at the plate and build up some job security. Torres, 20, is hitting .309/.406/.457 in International League play since being promoted from Double-A Trenton just under a month ago.
