New York Yankees Player Preview: Ronald Torreyes

New York Yankees’ Ronald Torreyes is one of the most exciting players to watch play the game of baseball. He keeps the clubhouse loose and is a fan favorite. “Toe,” as many know him by, is additionally a good player and is a great utility guy for the Yankees. Torreyes is an excellent contact hitter who gets on base at a fantastic rate and plays good defense as well.

Torreyes’ numbers from spring training, as per MLB.com:

29 AB, 2 R, 8 H, 0 HR, 4 RBI, 2 SB, .26 AVG, .303 OBP, .062 OPS

Little Guy, Big Heart:

Torreyes loves being a Yankees, despite being on the smaller size, but that has not stopped him. He will attack a first pitch fastball anytime a pitcher throws it. “Toe” won’t just take a pitch, he will come out guns firing. His defining moment as a Yankee was his walk-off hit against the Rangers in the tenth inning on June 23rd last season.

“Toe’s” defense is also great. He has played second, short and third for the bombers. “Toe” is one of the many sparks on a stacked Yankees roster, and is a great player in the clubhouse.

Toe-Night Show

Toe started the “Toe-night” show last season and should be something that carries over into the upcoming campaign. There will be plenty of Toe-night shows appearances from Judge, Sanchez and Didi this season. When Stanton hits his first homer, that should make for a very exciting episode of the snack-sized infielder.

Going into 2018, the Yankees will utilize Torreyes early and often, and will play a big part in the starting lineup on game-days.
