Yankees Gleyber Torres ranked seventh-best shortstop in MLB

When you look at the level of production that Yankees star Gleyber Torres put forth in 2019, it’s hard to believe that he finished 17th in AL MVP voting. I mean, how many 22-year-olds compile a .871 OPS, 38 home runs, and 90 RBIs in 144 games?

Although the now 23-year-old Torres played 77 games at shortstop while Didi Gregorius recovered from Tommy John surgery last season — Didi signed with the Phillies this winter, which means Torres will slide back to his natural shortstop position.

Speaking with Brendan Kuty of at the 40th annual Thurman Munson Awards Dinner, Torres said that he has prepared extremely well this offseason in order to help his team do even better in 2020.
