Torreyes isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Cubs. Torreyes has gone hitless with a walk and two strikeouts in his last 14 plate appearances, and he'll be out of the lineup for the third time in the last five games. Freddy Galvis will start at the hot corner and bat seventh.
Torreyes will hit the bench for the second time in three games Sunday against the Rockies. The Phillies have started to move away from Torreyes at third base, as his .245/.289/.350 slash line is nowhere near good enough for a corner infielder. Freddy Galvis will start at the hot corner Sunday.
Torreyes will sit Friday against the Rockies. Torreyes has been the Phillies' primary third baseman for the past month due to Alec Bohm's wrist injury and struggles, but he's a very poor fit offensively for the position and his 75 wRC+, the product of a .249/.293/.356 slash line, is clearly inadequate for a corner infielder. Torreyes owns a barely better 78 wRC+ over the course of his seven-year career, so there's little reason to expect things will improve for him at the plate any time soon. Freddy Galvis, who owns a career wRC+ of 80, will start at the hot corner Friday.
Torreyes will not start Monday's game against Milwaukee, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Torreyes has emerged as the Phillies' primary third baseman despite a poor .249/.293/.361 slash line, numbers which aren't good enough for an everyday middle infielder, let alone a third baseman. Freddy Galvis will take over at the hot corner Monday.
Torreyes (undisclosed) is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Marlins. Torreyes was scratched from Friday's lineup, replaced at shortstop by Didi Gregorius. While the reason for his scratch never came to light, it seems it was not a serious issue. He will be at the hot corner Saturday, batting eighth against lefty Trevor Rogers.
