Yankees Will Call Up Top Prospect Gleyber Torres

Luis Severino pitched three-hit ball over seven innings and the youthful Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-1 on Sunday even as prized prospect Gleyber Torres went 0 for 4 in his major league debut.

Jaime Garcia (2-1) gave up four runs and six hits in 5 1/3 innings for the Blue Jays (13-8), who lost consecutive games for the first time since opening the season with two home losses to the Yankees. His promotion was first reported by the Yankees' YES Network. Neil Walker, who is sitting out Sunday, Tyler Austin and Miguel Andujar would seem most at risk of losing out on starts while Torres is up with the Yankees.

When Torres was promoted last May to Scranton from the Yankees's Double A Trenton affiliate, there was speculation that Torres was going to be called up before the season's end. "He's played better than I anticipated he would and for the most part he's making the plays".

Yankees newcomer Giancarlo Stanton, last year's big league home run champion and NL MVP, said he likes Torres' swing. Didi added a sacrifice fly in the seventh for his 20th RBI already.

Romine's two-run double came with two outs in the second after Torres struck out with two runners in scoring position. He hit.287 with 14 doubles, seven homers and 34 RBIs in 202 at-bats a year ago at Double-A and Triple-A.

Torres was at second base for the sixth time this season on Saturday - starting there for the second straight day- and also has played nine games at shortstop and nine games at third. Andujar hit at every level in the minors, so if he continues to be simply adequate at third base, he should be provided plenty of rope to stick at the hot corner regardless of Brandon Drury's return from the disabled list. "It's just a matter of when they complete their development", Boone said. He received a warm ovation, then struck out swinging at an 82 miles per hour curveball from Blue Jays left-hander Jaime Garcia for the second out. He missed the previous two games after fouling a ball off his left foot Thursday night in the series opener. He finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout.
