Torreyes (COVID-19 injured list) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment later this week, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Before activating Torreyes, the Phillies will likely have him play at least a handful of games in the minors to get his timing back at the plate. Torreyes will serve as a utility infielder whenever he's reinstated from the IL.
Torreyes was placed on the injured list Monday for an unspecified reason, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The Phillies announced Monday that two coaches are in the league's health and safety protocols, so it would appear as though Torreyes is now on the COVID-19 injured list, even though the team hasn't provided an official injury designation. If that's the case, Torreyes will be eligible to return to the team once he clears the league's health and safety protocols as long as he doesn't test positive for COVID-19. Torreyes has appeared in just three games to begin the year and has gone 1-for-5 with three strikeouts during that time.
Torreyes (hand) will start at third base and will bat ninth in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Torreyes was forced out of Saturday's game after being struck in the hand by a pitch, but he needed only a day off before the Phillies were comfortable inserting him back in the lineup. The veteran infielder has already been informed that he'll be a part of the Opening Day roster, though he likely won't be in store for regular reps while all of Rhys Hoskins, Didi Gregorius, Alec Bohm and Jean Segura enter the regular season healthy.
Manager Joe Girardi announced Sunday that Torreyes (hand) made the Phillies' Opening Day roster, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
The 28-year-old signed a minor-league deal in December and was able to secure a roster spot during spring training. Torreyes suffered a hand injury Saturday when he was hit by a pitch, but he should be back on the field within a few days after X-rays came back clean. He should operate as a utility infielder for the Phillies.
Torreyes suffered a hand injury during Saturday's spring game against the Tigers, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Torreyes was hit on the hand by a pitch in the top of the fourth inning Saturday, but his X-rays came back clean. The 28-year-old should start the season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Torreyes left Saturday's spring game against the Tigers with an apparent injury, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
It's not clear what injury Torreyes is dealing with, but he was removed from the Grapefruit League game in the top of the fourth inning. Torreyes will likely begin the season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Torreyes signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
The 28-year-old spent the 2020 campaign with Philadelphia and had a four-game stint on the active roster in September, but he was quickly DFA'd and sent back to the alternate training site. Torreyes could have a similar role in 2021, though a full-length season would obviously provide the potential for more opportunities.
Torreyes cleared waivers and was outrighted to the alternate training site Thursday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 28-year-old was designated for assignment earlier in the week, but he'll remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Torreyes appeared in four games in his brief time with the team and went 1-for-7 with a double and a run scored.
Torreyes was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Tuesday.
Torreyes spent just four days on the Phillies' roster, going 1-for-7 at the plate. Reliever Garrett Cleavinger was recalled in a corresponding move.
Torreyes' contract was selected by the Phillies on Friday.
Torreyes will claim the bench infielder role that had belonged to Neil Walker, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. The 28-year-old should be able to fill that role well enough, as he owns a passable .279/.308/.370 slash line in 631 career big-league plate appearances, but the Phillies would likely be in trouble if he winds up in a fantasy-relevant situation.
Torreyes will be part of the Phillies' 60-man roster.
Torreyes, who isn't on the 40-man roster, enters a deep competition for infield playing time that also features Josh Harrison, Neil Walker and Logan Forsythe. His 2019 season was a mixed bag, as he only appeared in seven games for the Twins and had a .695 OPS through 79 games at the Triple-A level. Torreyes did have a respectable .286/.348/.381 slash line in 11 games this spring before the shutdown, but he'll likely have to come out and show it again before getting serious consideration for a roster spot.
Torreyes hit a decent .286/.348/.381 in 11 Grapefruit League contests.
The Phillies exact Opening Day roster construction remains to be seen, but Torreyes appears to be a long shot to earn a spot. They already have three players capable of playing shortstop in the expected starting lineup (Didi Gregorius, Jean Segura and Scott Kingery), so the team can afford to prioritize offense from its bench spots. With a modest .279/.308/.370 career slash line in 631 big-league plate appearances, Torreyes doesn't exactly fit that description.
Torreyes signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Tuesday as a non-roster invitee, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Torreyes primarily played for Triple-A Rochester last season, but he managed to appear in seven major-league games at the end of the year prior to being outrighted at the end of October. The 27-year-old will get the chance to compete in the Phillies' major-league camp during spring training after hitting .256/.289/.406 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI over 79 games at the Triple-A level in 2019.
Torreyes has been outrighted off the 40-man roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Torreyes will become a free agent if he clears waivers. Torreyes was signed to add depth at Triple-A and he was needed in September amid several injuries in the infield. He hit .256/.289/.406 with 11 homers and 42 RBI over 79 games at Triple-A. He'll likely earn an invite to spring training with a shot to win a utility role based on his Triple-A performance.
Torreyes had his contract selected from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Torreyes put together a .256/.289/.406 slash line with 11 homers and 42 RBI over 79 games at Triple-A this season, and he'll now take the place of Byron Buxton (shoulder) on the 40-man roster. Torreyes hasn't appeared in a big-league game since the 2018 season with the Yankees.
Torreyes was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Torreyes has spent the bulk of the season at Rochester, with his .175/.219/.371 slash line not tempting any team to claim him off waivers. He's still just 26 and owns a respectable .281/.310/.375 career slash line in 614 big-league plate appearances, however, so there's a chance he pops up in a utility role at some point if his numbers improve.
Torreyes was reinstated from the restricted list and placed at High-A Ft. Myers on Tuesday.
Torreyes had been on the restricted list for undisclosed reasons for over two weeks. He'll likely only spend a brief period of time in Ft. Myers, as he's spent most of his time at Triple-A or in the majors over the last four seasons. Gabriel Moya was designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.
Torreyes was placed on the restricted list for undisclosed reasons Saturday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The 26-year-old had been on the temporary inactive list with Triple-A Toledo, but the move to the restricted list will free up a spot on the Twins' 40-man roster. Ryan Eades' contract was purchased in a corresponding move. It's unclear why Torreyes is away from the team, but there currently appears to be no timetable for his return.
Torreyes was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Torreyes will begin the season in the minors with Jorge Polanco (arm) expected to be ready for the start of the season.
Torreyes will travel with the Twins to Minneapolis for Opening Day in case Jorge Polanco isn't ready to play due to arm fatigue, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Torreyes isn't expected to be added to the 25-man roster unless Polanco is hurt, however. Torreyes is expected to begin the season at Triple-A
