Yankees Mailbag: potential Torres deals and a unique Donaldson solution

Yankees Mailbag: potential Torres deals and a unique Donaldson solution

Photo by Nick Cammett/Diamond Images via We’re diving into the budget books this week. Good afternoon everyone, it’s time for another edition of the mailbag. Remember to send in your questions for our weekly call by e-mail to pinstripealleyblog [at] gmail [dot] com. Brad G. asks: It seems to make sense for the Yankees to look into moving Gleyber this offseason. What is his trade value? Gleyber Torres had a decent year all-around, proving if nothing else that his decline offensively wasn’t a full-on collapse and that he was playable at second base still. That was...

Addressing the Gleyber Torres rumors

Addressing the Gleyber Torres rumors

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Gleyber Torres’ name has been thrown around the rumor mill, but the Yankees should tread carefully. Things change pretty quickly, and situations are constantly in flux within the construction of a Major League roster. What seemed like a certainty a year or six months ago can turn into a huge question mark, right before you know it. There have been recent rumors about the Yankees discussing a Gleyber Torres with the Seattle Mariners, and although it is still fairly unlikely that these were more than preliminary talks (which teams often...

Yankees 2022 Roster Report Cards: Isiah Kiner-Falefa

Yankees 2022 Roster Report Cards: Isiah Kiner-Falefa

Photo by J. Conrad Williams Jr./Newsday RM via Seen as a defense-first stop gap, Kiner-Falefa had a bit of a rocky 2022. Gleyber Torres’ 2021 struggles made it pretty clear that the Yankees needed a shortstop in 2022. Down the stretch of the ‘21 season, Torres’ play at short made it so that the Yankees moved him back to second and attempted to fill in at short with the likes of Gio Urshela and Andrew Velazquez. With the decision made that Torres was likely going to stay at second going forward, that left the Yankees with a pretty sizeable hole at shortstop. Going...

Gleyber Torres’ volatility through his first five big league seasons

Gleyber Torres’ volatility through his first five big league seasons

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Torres has experienced plenty of ups and downs in his young career. Baseball is a sport of routine and consistency. An everyday player gets roughly 550 at-bats over the course of a regular season, with slumps and hot streaks as a part of the deal, for even the great ones. The best hitters maximize their hot stretches, decreasing the impact of their slumps in their final slash line. Certain hitters are streakier by nature, but there isn’t such a thing as a purely streaky career. Hitters evolve, hitters decline, but there is almost always an...
