New York Yankee News/Rumors: Gleyber Torres on the path to Yankee stardom, what happened?

The New York Yankees have some problems losing in another postseason. One of those problems is Gleyber Torres at shortstop. There is no question that Gleyber Torres is deficient at short. But, what many miss is that Gleyber Torres never asked to follow in the footsteps of Derek Jeter. Being a team player, Torres agreed to play at short when the New York Yankees failed to bring back free agent Didi Gregorius.

Torres’s natural position is at second base, where he is not great but much better than he is at shortstop. Torres is young, very young, and has many years to grow into the Hall of Fame player many thought he would be.
