New York Yankees Trading Gleyber Torres? Shortstop Set To Represent His Home Team

The Thanksgiving holidays are done and dusted. And now things in the MLB circuit are more intense as the winter meeting is approaching. Every year all 30 of the Major League and 120 Minor League teams meet for four days in winter. This year\’s Winter meeting is scheduled from 4-7 December 2022. The winter meeting will mark the final call on several trade deals and signings that have been hanging the balance for a while now. Meanwhile, as for New York Yankees, they have several players on the agenda. Apart from the MLB\’s hottest commodity this year, one player Yankees will have their eyes on is Gleyber Torres. 

Should The Yankees Keep Gleyber Torres?

The whole league will keep an eye on one specific guy if the Yankees decide to join the trade party and part with players from their major league roster. In addition to hitting 24 home runs and posting a 115 wRC+, Gleyber Torres also managed to decrease his defensive errors and raise his sagging slugging percentage back above .450. He also had a very good season.

While the Yankees are in no way required to trade him, there are valid points on both sides of the Torres debate if they want to make a quick move to improve their chances of winning the World Series.

Torres is only 25 years old. Therefore, he has time to develop into a key player for the squad. Before he enters the free-agent market, the Yankees have two more seasons to observe how that develops. DJ LeMahieu could play third base the majority of the time if Torres were kept on. Further, Torres\’ inclusion in the Yankees\’ lineup was critical because he began hitting the ball harder than before. Additionally, he utilized the opposite field more frequently than ever before, which was encouraging for a right-handed batter in Yankee Stadium.

Gleyber Torres Fulfils His Dream!

The year is about to end. In the meantime, New York Yankees outfielder Gleyber Torres can cross one item from his bucket list before entering the new year. The young baseball star finally has achieved his lifelong dream of playing his home team in Venezuela\’s baseball league. Torres recently shared his joy with the fans over an Instagram post. In the post, he wrote, \”Today one of me many dreams are being accomplished.\”

Torres has been granted permission by the New York Yankees to compete for Leones del Caracas, a team based in his birthplace, in the country\’s winter league. Eugenio Suarez, a Venezuelan-born teammate of Torres who plays in the infield for the Seattle Mariners, will join him.
