New York Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres said he is not looking at social media anymore because the last time he did he saw trade rumors, according to Marly Rivera of ESPN.
Torres dealt with trade rumors during the 2022 season, leading up to the MLB trade deadline and went through a slump right after. He was specifically rumored to be in a deal for Marlins pitcher Pablo Lopez that did not end up happening. Pablo Lopez was traded to the Minnesota Twins this offseason.
Much of the speculation surrounding Gleyber Torres’ future with the Yankees is fueled by infield prospects Oswald Peraza and Anthony Volpe. Both of those prospects are said to be part of the shortstop position battle with Isiah Kiner-Falefa this spring. Oswald Peraza is likely the favorite for the job, and when Anthony Volpe comes up that could force the Yankees to move Torres.
