Torreyes (personal) is on the temporary inactive list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and hasn't appeared in any games for the affiliate since June 25, Brendan Kuty of NJ.com reports. Torreyes has been away from the club for more than a week to be with his wife, who is dealing with a health issue. The utility man struggled to find at-bats behind everyday middle infielders Didi Gregorius and Gleyber Torres earlier this season, but the Yankees may have more of a need for Torreyes' services after Torres exited Wednesday's game against the Braves with right hip tightness. In any case, Torreyes won't be an option for the big club until he's first activated at Triple-A, and it's not known when that might happen.
Torreyes was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday. Torreyes will make way for Clint Frazier, who was called up in a corresponding move. Torreyes has produced in a limited role for the Yankees this season, hitting .323/.343/.415 in 67 plate appearances, but the Yankees needed an extra outfielder with Brett Gardner battling a minor knee injury. The infielder is likely to return to the Yankees in a bench role sometime soon.
Torreyes was promoted from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to the major leagues Saturday. Torreyes is hitting .339 with six RBI and six extra-base knocks across 22 games at the big-league level this season. He was promoted after Masahiro Tanaka (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day disabled list. Torreyes figures to come off the bench during his time with the Yankees.
Torreyes was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre following Friday's game. The Yankees had to make room for Greg Bird (ankle) and Torreyes was the roster casualty. He's fared well in his limited playing time so far this year (.339/.349/.435) and he can help out all around the infield, so it seems likely that Torreyes will be back up to fill a bench role before long.
Torreyes has won a spot on the Yankees' Opening Day roster as a utility man, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Torreyes' hopes of winning a starting role in the infield were effectively quashed following the Yankees' recent acquisitions of Brandon Drury and Neil Walker, but Torreyes' versatility was enough to keep him on the roster as a bench bat. So long as Drury, Walker and Didi Gregorius maintain generally good health, Torreyes shouldn't be expected to make more than a couple starts per week.
