The New York Yankees find themselves at a crossroads with infielder Gleyber Torres as they navigate the complexities of their roster heading into the 2024 MLB season. Despite once being hailed as a rising star and a cornerstone of the Yanks’ future, Torres now faces an uncertain future in pinstripes. His role on the team was potentially jeopardized by the emergence of other talented players, including outfielder Juan Soto. Both Torres and Soto will likely become free agents by the end of the 2024 season. Torres has been with the team for a while now. Despite a couple of lackluster seasons, the infielder came alive with the bat in 2023. Accordingly, he earned a $15 million record salary in arbitration earlier this off-season.

However, Gleyber will likely lose his spot to Juan Soto next off-season. Juan Soto was traded to the New York Yankees on a one-year rental. He is expected to enter free agency, wherein his market value could soar by $500 million. Thus, practically, it’s impossible for the Bronx Bombers to retain both players next off-season. Needless to say, considering Soto’s firepower, age factor, and impeccable talent, the Bombers will prioritize his extension over Torres. Ultimately, the fate of Gleyber Torres hangs in the balance as the Yankees weigh their options and plot their course for the 2025 season and beyond. Whether he remains in pinstripes or finds himself wearing a different uniform, Torres’ future will be closely watched by fans and analysts, and the Yanks seek to build a championship-caliber roster.
