“I Will Leave For Him To Play” Just In New York Yankees Top Sensational Superstar Announced His Departure…………”

Gleyber Torres, the second baseman for the Yankees, quits the game when a pitch hits his right thumb.

HOUSTON (AP) – Gleyber Torres, the second baseman for the New York Yankees, departed Friday night’s game against the Houston Astros after taking a fastball with a velocity of 93.1 mph to his right thumb.

In the eighth inning, Torres was plunked by Tayler Scott with one out. After collapsing to the ground and convulsing for a few minutes, he was examined by an athletic trainer and proceeded to trot towards first base.

He stayed in the game to begin the bottom of the seventh, but with one out in the mound visit, Jahmai Jones took his place.

X-rays were negative, according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone. According to Boone, Torres quit the game because his thumb began to swell.

It was Torres’ hope to play on Saturday.

“It feels good,” he remarked. Right now, it’s a little sore from the beginning. However, I’m relieved that the X-rays were negative. The spot where the ball struck me is a little painful, nothing too serious.”
