2018 FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECT WATCH: GLEYBER TORRES ERA TO BEGIN SUNDAY

One frustrating Tommy John elbow surgery and a month later, the New York Yankees will begin the Gleyber Torres era beginning on Sunday as word circulated late Saturday the team will promote their top infield prospect for that day's game.  Already universally considered a top five prospect in all of baseball, Torres has absolutely torn it up at Triple-A in his return from the 2017 Tommy John surgery; hitting an insane .370 with 1 home run and 1 stolen base at the ripe age of 21.  Having been the big return when the Yankees traded Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs midway through the 2016 season, Torres would have already been up as an everyday Yankee if not for the Tommy John surgery that virtually wiped out all of last season.  With Torres showing no ill effects from the surgery, he is expected to step right in and be the team's everyday second baseman to high effect.  While he already looks like a future 20/20 man, what really separates Torres as a top prospect is his ability to draw a high amount of walks but also limit K's which is very rare from a young hitter.  This promises to be a fun ride so be sure to get Torres right in there beginning tomorrow.
