SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE
Gleyber Torres was removed from yesterday’s game early with the same core injury that caused him to leave a game earlier this week. He is headed back to New York for more tests, so he is expected to be added to the IL. Mike Ford should get the extra playing time with him injured, he is worth a look in fantasy with everyday playing time.
REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Expect Gleyber Torres to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 77.96 projected fantasy points puts him at #9 behind Ketel Marte and ahead of Luis Arraez. He has averaged 3.03 fantasy points in his past 244 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.18 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#5) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite second baseman. He is not projected for elite value. Gleyber Torres is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #4 fantasy position rank.
