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.”
