Yankees: Gleyber Torres is confident he will return to the level of his rookie season

The New York Yankees have had a lot of confidence in the Venezuelan Gleyber Torres since he made his appearance in MLB during the 2018 campaign, in which he was third in the voting of the American League Rookie of the Year behind his partner, the Dominican Miguel Andújar and the Japanese of the Angels, Shohei Ohtani, who has been confirmed as perhaps the best player in the entire Major Leagues in 2021 by unanimously winning the MVP.

The truth is that Torres is a great offensive powerhouse, but he has been quite irregular in recent seasons and very unreliable on defense, making many mistakes mainly as a shortstop. Now that he’s expected to return to 2B in 2022, Gleyber himself is hopeful he can return to that rookie form, he told the YES Network.

I feel very good right now. I feel a lot of confidence, I believe in myself and in all the opportunities that they are giving me. I will try to give my best for the team, I feel like the 2018-2019 version of me.

With the trade bringing Isiah Kiner-Falefa to shortstop and Josh Donaldson at third, plus the return of Anthony Rizzo to secure him at first, with the only question being whether Gleyber will play second base or DJ LeMahieu, being the natural position of both players.

I started as a rookie at Al Bat in early 2018 and am in my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, number one defender of Barry Bonds, and hater of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag football, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the world capital of shrimp, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived for a while in Australia; I survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
