Gleyber Torres had a tough time at the plate in his first major league game. Torres will join the Yankees for their game against the Blue Jays on Sunday. "He's good already", Stanton said.

He will bat eighth.

Torres is the Yankees' No. 1 overall prospect and the top shortstop prospect in all of baseball, according to MLB Pipeline.

Gleyber Torres had a pretty bad spring training. "We think he has a chance to be a special player". He received a warm ovation, then struck out swinging at an 82 miles per hour curveball from left-hander Jaime Garcia for the second out. With Andujar hitting and playing well, Torres will most likely crack the lineup at second. He also fouled out and flied out. "Steps in the right direction". "Just didn't impact the ball yet", Boone said. Torres has hit.347 with three doubles, one triple, one home run and 11 RBIs for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre of the International League. "Excited, and super happy", Torres said. "I think he'll do fine".

Torres went 0-for-3 in Saturday's game before heading to the bench.

Torres, who is from Venezuela, called his parents and said he hoped they would make it to NY in time for Sunday's game. "He's not going to hit it a mile or wow you with his speed, but he does everything really well on the baseball field".

The 21-year-old infielder came over to the Yankees in the deal that sent Aroldis Chapman to the Cubs in 2016.

Torres took optional batting practice on the field with teammates in the morning. The emergence of Greg Bird, Luis Severino, Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez have all resulted in team success.

"I don't think there's anything that's "Wow" [about him]", the manager said. I hope he becomes a star and millions buy his jerseys. They told me I was a little too anxious, so I'm going out there a little more relaxed. "He's got some cool action in there and some pop at the end".

"He's gonna be good, man", Giancarlo Stanton said. Infielder-outfielder Jace Peterson was designated for assignment, and infielder Tyler Wade was optioned to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Wade is hitting.086 with four RBIs and could be the player demoted to make room for Torres.
