Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Back in lineup Wednesday
Torres (wrist/ankle) is starting Wednesday's game against Oakland.
Torres was targeting a Thursday return to the lineup, but he'll ultimately start at second base and bat fifth in Wednesday's matchup. The 25-year-old left Sunday's game against Houston due to a mild ankle sprain, but his absence over the last few days was mainly due to a sore wrist that he's been dealing with for several weeks. However, he received a cortisone shot Monday and is now back to good health.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Targeting Thursday return
Torres (wrist/ankle) said he expects to return to the Yankees lineup for Thursday's game in Houston, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Torres' departure from his last start Sunday against the Astros was attributed to a mild ankle sprain, but it's an inflamed right wrist that's the greater concern for the infielder at this time. The 25-year-old acknowledged that he's been dealing with a sore wrist for about three weeks, but fortunately, the cortisone shot he received Monday to address the injury already seems to have yielded favorable results. Torres said he'll play catch and perhaps pick up a bat Tuesday, though he'll be out of the lineup against the Athletics for the second day in a row. He's hopeful to play in Wednesday's series finale, but due to the quick turnaround for that game, Thursday's matchup with the Astros looks like a more realistic target for his return.... See More ...

Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Still sitting Tuesday
Torres (wrist) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Torres received a cortisone shot Monday to address inflammation in his right wrist, and he'll need at least one more day for the injection to take effect and ideally resolve the swelling that he's been experiencing. The Yankees will re-evaluate Torres early Wednesday to see if he's ready to go, but it wouldn't be surprising if he ends up missing his third consecutive game. Marwin Gonzalez will pick up a start Tuesday while Torres sits.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Dealing with wrist injury
Torres, who isn't starting Monday against the Athletics, received a cortisone shot to address inflammation in his right wrist and will likely miss at least two games as a result, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.
Torres sustained a mild ankle sprain Sunday against the Astros but has moved past that issue ahead of Monday's series opener against Oakland. However, he underwent an MRI on his wrist that revealed inflammation, and Torres received a shot to address the injury with the hope that it speeds up his recovery time. It's not yet clear whether his wrist issue will lead to a trip to the injured list.... See More ... See Less

Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Dealing with mild ankle sprain
Torres was diagnosed with a mild ankle sprain after leaving Sunday's win over the Astros, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.
Torres was hurt when he was tagged out at third base in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday, but manager Aaron Boone downplayed the severity of the injury after the game. Boone said that Torres "dodged a bullet," so the infielder should be considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's series opener against the Athletics.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Hurts ankle late in Sunday's game
Torres was removed in the top of the 10th inning of Sunday's game against the Astros after he appeared to tweak his right ankle in the previous half inning, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. He went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base before departing the contest.
Though Torres was able to put weight on the ankle after exiting in the field in the bottom of the ninth inning, he looked to be in pain after he was tagged out at third base on a pickoff attempt. Marwin Gonzalez came on to replace Torres in Sunday's contest, but Joey Gallo could be the bigger beneficiary from a playing-time standpoint if Torres' ankle issue forces him to the 10-day injured list. For now, the Yankees will presumably view Torres as day-to-day.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Not starting Wednesday
Torres is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.
With Isiah Kiner-Falefa (hamstring) back in the lineup after a three-game absence to bring the New York infield back to full strength, Torres will head to the bench. Even though Torres is without a direct path to an everyday role at second base or shortstop, the Yankees should be able to carve out at least a handful of starts per week for him by rotating rest days among their regulars....

Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Gets third straight start
Torres will start at second base and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.
Torres doesn't have a direct path to an everyday role at present, but he should continue to pick up a handful of starts per week while manager Aaron Boone rotates off days among the Yankees' regular infielders (Anthony Rizzo, Josh Donaldson, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and DJ LeMahieu). It's Rizzo who takes a seat Sunday to clear room in the lineup for Torres, who gets his third straight start after going 4-for-8 with three doubles, five runs and an RBI in the first two contests of the series in Toronto....

Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Sitting out Thursday
Torres is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rays.
With Josh Donaldson serving his one-game suspension Tuesday and returning to the lineup Wednesday, the Yankees are now back to full strength in both the infield and outfield. Torres could find himself on the bench more frequently as a result, though he's helped his case for holding down at least a part-time role by producing a 1.047 OPS over his last 13 contests....

Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Back on bench Tuesday
Torres is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.
With Josh Donaldson and Giancarlo Stanton returning from the injured list over the weekend to bring the Yankees lineup back to full strength, Torres no longer has a direct path to an everyday role at second base after he had occupied the position in 13 of the team's last 14 games. Though absences from the lineup should come slightly more frequently for Torres, he should still play on a near-everyday basis while manager Aaron Boone rotates rest days for some of the team's other regulars....

Yankees' Gleyber Torres: Playing through wrist issue
Torres has been getting treatment for a wrist issue, but it's not keeping him out of games, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.
Torres has been wearing a wrap on his wrist in addition to receiving ice treatment after games, but it hasn't impacted his performance at the plate. In fact, the infielder is in the midst of his best hitting stretch of the season, going 7-for-24 with four homers over his past six contests. Yankees manager Aaron Boone clarified Sunday that the wrist issue isn't a major concern. "He's been getting some treatment for his wrist, but it hasn't been something that's really affected him much at all in the game," Boone said before the game.
