ESPN Report Another Sad News: Just In New York Yankees Announces THE Departure Of Another Top Sensational Star Player

Regrettably, Gleyber Torres’s mind-alteringly stupid moments are all too common these days.
Gleyber Torres’ play hasn’t contributed to any of the recent successes for the New York Yankees. Once considered a potential cornerstone in the Yankees’ lineup, Torres is currently having his fifth consecutive season of at-best performance at the plate and has been a poor defender almost everywhere the Yankees have used him. Regretfully, the latter issue surfaced on Saturday during the Dodgers game.

With Mookie Betts at first base and no outs in the eighth inning, the Dodgers had the Yankees trailing by two runs. But the Yankees got Shohei Ohtani to hit a ground ball straight at Torres, which would have been a great opportunity for most major league defenders to get a double play. Rather than waiting for an out, Gleyber Torres booted it, giving LA runners at first and second.

The Yankees’ fate was set at that point. Tommy Kahnle’s strikeout of Freddie Freeman only gave New York their first out of the inning, not reducing the deficit to two runs. Teoscar Hernandez, a deadly hitter for the Yankees, loaded the bases with a walk to Will Smith before launching a changeup 424 feet to center field for a grand slam to make it 8-2. Torres’s incompetence is what allowed that inning to proceed, even though Kahnle is undoubtedly to blame for giving Hernandez a pitch on a silver platter.

The Yankees are still losing money because of Gleyber Torres’ presence on their roster.
Sadly, Torres’ poor defensive awareness has been evident on previous occasions JUST IN THIS SERIES. Torres dropped a pop up into the outfield in the third inning of Friday night’s game due to laziness, which allowed the Dodgers to score a free baserunner. The pickoff saved him from that stupid play, but it was just the most recent in a long string of embarrassing incidents for the Yankees infielder.

Now, all Yankees supporters can do is tally the days until they can get rid of Torres. Given that he is not hitting or catching the ball this season, it is very likely that Torres would have already been riding the pine if prospect Caleb Durbin wasn’t hurt down in the minor leagues right now. This year’s trade deadline saw Torres as a strong contender to be dealt, and his most recent Benny Hill incident is unlikely to strengthen his position in the team.

Be prepared for the Yankees to make a move quickly to remove Torres from this otherwise outstanding lineup, even if they are unable to find a suitor for the pending free agent at the deadline. They cannot take any other action because the stakes are too high.
