Yankees top prospect Gleyber Torres placed on Triple-A DL
Torres left Saturday's game with a hyperextended left elbow
Top prospect Gleyber Torres exited the first game of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders' Saturday doubleheader in Buffalo after sliding into home plate and jamming his left arm, and on Sunday morning, the 20-year-old was placed on the seven-day disabled list with a hyperextended left elbow.
X-rays on Torres' arm were negative, and he will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Scranton on Monday.
After earning promotion to the Triple-A Yankees affiliate, Torres has gradually begun to thrive against the elevated competition, entering Saturday's doubleheader slashing .304/.404/.433 with six extra-base hits and 16 RBI.
He went hand-first and appeared to get caught around catcher.....It didn't look good at all. He was down in a heap before he walked off. https://t.co/dJJ96TxsiZ- Mike Harrington (@ByMHarrington) June 17, 2017
