New York Post | George A. King III: While Aaron Judge is the primary name associated with long-term contracts, Gleyber Torres could be the player that earns one first. Ultimately, general manager Brian Cashman and owner Hal Steinbrenner are going to have to make a decision on Judge, Torres, and likely Gary Sanchez. Will they be able to keep all three? The probability is against that reality, but they simply can’t let Torres go considering his youth in quality after just two seasons.
That raises the question, which of the three are worth investing long-term in. Despite Torres being an All-Star, hitting 38 homers, and driving in 90 runs, some factors might suggest he doesn’t deserve a long-term deal. His defense is questionable, and his efficiency at shortstop specifically has yet to be justified. If he cannot increase his defensive success, the Yankees could look to deal the young slugger. However, I do believe he is a building block moving forward.
