Not only is New York Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres putting his injury-ravaged team on his shoulders, he's also making some history in the process.

After hitting his second home run of the game against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, Torres (22 years, 112 days) became the third-youngest Yankees player in the live-ball era (since 1920) with at least 10 total bases in a game, according to Stats By STATS. Mickey Mantle (20 years, 296 days) and Joe DiMaggio (21 years, 212 days) are the only two Yankees ahead of him.

Hope our hapless Aaron (Boone) can move up the best hitter in the lineup and not have him wasting away behind all the meathead sluggers. It would be nice for our stalwart Aaron (Judge) could have some legit protection backing him up or high average hitter ahead of him to enhance his chances to factor in the run-scoring approach. Personally, I think he should be given an opportunity to bat in his eventual spot in the lineup now when we are so depleted and he can grow into becoming a more all-around hitter that is ideal in the top of the order and thus steer him away from drifting into that slugger mindset of the middle-of-the-order. At the very least he can energize the top of the lineup until our fragile Aaron (Hicks) returns from his latest physical setback.
