The New York Yankees lead the American League in runs scored, so rushing top prospect Gleyber Torres to the majors doesn’t figure to be a priority. But his weekend promotion to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre should put fantasy owners on alert. After all, Torres homered four times over his final seven games for Double-A Trenton and boasts a .273 batting average and .863 OPS in the Eastern League, with five home runs and five stolen bases in nine attempts over 32 games. Those numbers don’t scream superstar, but if he can handle the next level similarly, it becomes a bigger deal.
