WOW. New York Yankees top infield prospect Gleyber Torres will be forced to undergo Tommy John elbow surgery and will miss the rest of the 2017 season. Torres suffered the elbow injury sliding into the plate over the weekend and suffered a tear of the UCL in his elbow which will shelve him for the remainder of the year. Torres was getting close to being promoted by the Yankees and with incumbent third baseman Chase Headley enduring a season-long struggles, some reports had him being called up by the end of June. Obviously this is a huge blow for prospect chasers and those who have held Torres all season to this point. We are talking about a top five prospect overall who has star potential written all over him. That story will now have to unfold in 2018.
