Triple-A manager says New York Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres not yet ready for majors

Across town they have a SS ready defensively in AAA but the team is wedded to playing Jose Reyes, a shortstop who can’t field or hit.

“If you ask me today, if the call comes, he is not ready,” Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders manager Al Pedrique said Tuesday. “He is headed in the right direction. I like where he is at for a 20-year-old kid to be in Triple-A. He’s very mature, but defensively, he needs more work at third and second.”

Manny Machado: How Gleyber Torres should handle pressure call-up | New York Post

“What’s the old expression Billy [Martin] used to say? ‘Try as you may, you can’t screw up the really good ones,’ ” said Showalter, who got to know Martin during his final term as Yankees manager in 1988. “They will always seek to their level. Manny could play anywhere. Of course it was, you know, if you want to go to the big leagues, you’ve got to learn how to play third base. ‘OK, I’ll do that.’ ”

Top Yankees Prospect Gleyber Torres Promoted To Triple A

All is proceeding according to plan:

The Yankees have promoted top prospect Gleyber Torres to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The move was announced after Sunday’s game by manager Bobby Mitchell on the team’s weekly radio show. Torres, 20, was hitting .273/.367/.496 in 32 games at Double-A and had homered in four of his past seven games, including a grand slam on Friday against Portland.

“Every since we’ve gotten him in the organization, he’s shown the ability to give quality at-bats every single day,” said Yankees farm director Gary Denbo, who was in attendance at Trenton over the last three games. “He’s shown some power, he’s played some exceptional defense for us, his throwing has been accurate and he’s getting better and better on the basepaths. So all the things that we want him to check off on the way to major league player, he’s been doing it for us.”

Do the unthinkable, Yankees: Give Gleyber Torres a shot | New York Post

No, no, no. Give the *kid* some time in AA. If he does well, move him up to AAA. If he does well there, then, and only then, add him to the 40-Man Roster and bring him up to the big league club. If he plays well, he still makes his debut at age 20. (He was born on December 13th.)

Gleyber Torres isn’t making a demotion easy on Yankees | New York Post

He has looked great this spring training. There is no way he breaks with the team, though.

Of course, there’s still the reality that Torres has never played above Class A and is expected to open the season with Double-A Trenton.

General manager Brian Cashman has cautioned that Torres also hasn’t played in cold temperatures.

Top Prospect Gleyber Torres’ Meteoric Rise Could Earn Him 2017 Yankees Debut | Bleacher Report

“Next year he’ll start at Trenton and get introduced to the cold weather of the Eastern League in April for the first time,” Cashman told reporters, including George A. King III of the New York Post. “He’ll be ready whenever he’s ready. I’m not currently thinking about his timeline. Once he has extensive success at Double–A level, you can start doing that. He hasn’t taken that step yet.”
