REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Gleyber Torres to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 70.73 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Javier Baez and ahead of Ketel Marte. He has averaged 3.01 fantasy points in his past 247 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.24 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#4) 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 projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Gleyber Torres is expected to come up slightly short of this season-to-date's #5 fantasy position rank.
