Gleyber Torres admires hit vs. White Sox

The Yankees activated INF Gleyber Torres from the IL prior to Friday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles.

To make room on the roster, New York optioned OF Estevan Florial to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Torres, who has been dealing with a left thumb injury, last played in the majors on Aug. 8.

He had been on a rehab assignment in Triple-A and left Thursday’s game after getting hit in the left hand by a pitch.

Torres has struggled this season, slashing just .253/.328/.351 with just six home runs in 99 games.

He has also been poor defensively, committing 14 errors at shortstop while being worth -8 DRS.

Since bursting on the scene in 2018 and establishing himself as one of the best young players in the game in 2019, Torres has hit just .251/.336/.356 with nine homers in 141 games over his last two seasons.
