2018 FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECT WATCH: GLEYBER TORRES PROMOTION COULD BE IMMINENT

If you were watching the press meeting between New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone and the team's reporters Sunday afternoon after the team's doubleheader with the Detroit Tigers was rained out, you would have caught wind of a plan to promote top infield prospect Gleyber Torres sometime in the very near future.  While Boone didn't confirm that the move was in fact in the works, he also didn't it and also went into how much he looks forward to having Torres on the team.  With the Yanks infield dealing with the absence of third baseman Brandon Drury (migraines) and with fellow rookie Miguel Andujar really struggling, a promotion of Torres makes sense on so many levels.  Then there is the fact Torres is absolutely on fire in at Triple-A where he goes into Monday's action with a scorching .389 average with 1 home run and 1 stolen base in 39 at-bats to begin the season there.  Lauded as a future All-Star monster and considered a top five prospect in all of baseball, Torres already should be owned everywhere he is available.  With the deadline having passed to preserve another year before arbitration for prospects, look for a Torres promotion possibly as early as this Friday.

  1. Better prospect: Torres or Calhoun?

  2. Torres. More versatile and better speed. VERY CLOSE though.
