Yankees to call up top prospect Gleyber Torres, reports say

Who will be the odd man out if Yankees call up Gleyber Torres

Top prospect Gleyber Torres is being called up to the New York Yankees, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.

Torres arrived from the Chicago Cubs in July 2016 as part of the Aroldis Chapman trade. The right-handed-hitting Torres has shown plenty of upside with the bat since his promotion to Triple-A in 2017, having slashed.331/.409/.488 in 149 plate appearances at the minors' highest level.

The time is finally now for Gleyber Torres. All of that has come with Torres splitting time between second, shortstop and third base.

In anticipation of his callup, Torres was asked Saturday if he felt he was ready to contribute in the big leagues. Andujar got a break when Brandon Drury went down with an injury.

With a 9-1 blowout of Toronto Saturday and now the much-anticipated debut of their beloved top prospect, Yankee fans can breathe a sigh of relief as this could be the spark their team needed in the heated division chase of Boston.

Genworth Financial, Inc. (GNW)
Finally, Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services Inc. increased its position in Genworth Financial by 11.2% during the 3rd quarter. Keefe, Bruyette & Woods reiterated a "hold" rating on shares of Genworth Financial in a research report on Thursday, April 12th.

Sexton finished the Leinster try scoring on 60 minutes, with the game wrapped up in the remaining twenty minutes at 38-9. Leinster try scorer Jonathan Sexton is congratulated by Robbie Henshaw , Jordan Larmour , James Tracy and Rob Kearney .

Torres was in the lineup for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's afternoon game against Toledo. He will likely play third base and maybe some outfield for now with the Yankees as Didi Gregorius has the shortstop position locked up in the Bronx. With Andujar raking in recent days while manning the hot corner, it would seem clear that Torres be at the keystone for his Major League Baseball debut.

The 21-year-old infielder will join the Yankees before Sunday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, the person said Saturday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been announced.

If the season were going the way the Yanks wanted, there would be no room for Torres.

Obviously, none of this has happened. It's hardly where they expected to be, less than a month into a season that began with championship expectations.
