Yankees' Torres starts at 2B vs. Jays

Who will be the odd man out if Yankees call up Gleyber Torres

He let out a sigh.

New York Yankees prospect Gleybar Torres will make his Major League Baseball debut on Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays, batting in the eighth position in the lineup and playing second base. The two platooning players have hit a combined.147 over 95 at-bats with no homers and seven total RBI.

The Yankees will call up Gleyber Torres from Triple A Scranton Wilkes-Barre to play with them on Sunday, reports YES Network's Jack Curry. Neil Walker, who is sitting out Sunday, Tyler Austin and Miguel Andujar would seem most at risk of losing out on starts while Torres is up with the Yankees. "My (hitting) timing is getting better every day". While he was healthy come camp - he even asked the Yankees to play in the Venezuelan winter league - the team believed he needed more work in the minors to get himself back into game shape.

Torres was the prized piece of the blockbuster trade that sent Aroldis Chapman to the Cubs in their ultimately successful quest for their first World Championship in 108 years and has soared through the Yankees' farm system despite his season-ending Tommy John Surgery last summer. NY sent Aroldis Chapman to Chicago for a package of prospects headlined by Torres and outfielder Billy McKinney, who made his major-league debut earlier this season.
