3.) Can Gleyber Torres be trusted at shortstop?

This is a major question that the Yankees would have been facing over a 162-game season. Torres did feature at shortstop a bit in 2019, playing in 77 total games, logging a .961 fielding percentage with 11 errors.

He didn’t fare too much better at second base, posting a .967 fielding percentage with all nine errors. Torres represented -1 runs BIS (Defensive runs saved above average) at shortstop. At 2B, he allowed -12.



The condensed season actually might be beneficial for the Yankees with their Gleyber Torres at a shortstop experiment. A smaller sample size will give them the information they need to supplement him next offseason if he doesn’t perform adequately.
