Torres went a combined 2-for-6 with a run and a walk in Saturday's doubleheader versus Tampa Bay. Torres entered Game 1 of the twinbill in an 0-for-24 skid, but he was able to notch a hit in each of the two contests Saturday. After a strong 2019 campaign, the 23-year-old is slashing .146/.212/.208 with only one home run in 52 plate appearances this season.
Torres is not in the lineup Monday against the Phillies. Torres left Thursday's game against Baltimore after getting hit by a pitch in the elbow but started all three games in the weekend series against Boston, and there hasn't been any indication that this is anything other than a routine day off for the young infielder. He may need a day to sort things out after starting the season hitting .179/.258/.286 through his first eight games. Tyler Wade will start at shortstop in his absence.
Torres (elbow) is starting at shortstop and batting third Friday against the Red Sox. The 23-year-old was hit by a pitch on the elbow during Thursday's win over the Orioles, but X-rays came back negative and he'll remain in the lineup Friday. Torres is 3-for-15 with one home run, two runs scored and two RBI through five games, with all three hits coming during the same contest.
Torres (elbow) told reporters that he thinks he'll be able to play in Friday's game against the Red Sox after being hit by a pitch and exiting Thursday's win over the Orioles, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. X-rays on Torres elbow came back negative earlier Thursday evening, so the shortstop's optimism about playing in Friday's rivalry matchup doesn't come as a surprise. The 23-year-old has notched three hits, including one home run, in 14 at-bats thus far.
Torres has been diagnosed with a right elbow contusion after being hit by a pitch in the first inning of Thursday's game against the Orioles. Torres stayed in the game after being checked on by trainers, but he was later replaced by Tyler Wade in the fourth inning. With X-rays on Torres' elbow coming back negative, the shortstop seems unlikely to miss an extended period of time, although it's not yet clear if he'll be able to play in Friday's series opener against the Red Sox.
