Of course we don't like to lose games, particularly after winning 8 in a row. And I am not diminishing our loss last night at all, but I am slightly more concerned about the news out of Trenton last evening. According to the NY Daily News, "Yankees shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres was scratched from the lineup Tuesday for Double-A Trenton because of biceps tendinitis, the team announced. Torres was supposed to DH and bat third. He will have an MRI later to analyze the severity of the ailment." Another player, another MRI and this is, as we reported earlier this week, is not a stat we want to have this season, or any season- #1 in MRIs that is.

Trenton Thunder Manager Bobby Mitchell told the Trentonian that he did not know how this came about. "Torres felt his shoulder stiffen up during batting practice and will be evaluated to determine the severity of the injury, manager Bobby Mitchell said during his pregame availability."

We will keep a close eye on the Torres story as it develops, but as the YES Network reported after the Yankees loss to Chicago, this could send the shortstop prospect to the 10-day disabled list the same day pitching prospect James Kaprielian underwent Tommy John surgery.
Keep the faith, folks.
