George King III of the New York Post has a terrific piece today about Gleyber Torres and the Yankees exchange with the Cubs for him… giving away of course the dominant Aroldis Chapman.  

B4INREMOTE-aHR0cHM6Ly8zLmJwLmJsb2dzcG90LmNvbS8taHhEaHNjMDA1YW8vV0JTVS0tei1oVEkvQUFBQUFBQUE0bE0va2FUbE9uTEpjbllGZEc4QmRRaEtLbHhoOFl4RXRwckN3Q0xjQi9zNjQwL0Fyb2xkaXMlMjUyQkNoYXBtYW4lMjUyQk5MQ1MlMjUyQkNoaWNhZ28lMjUyQkN1YnMlMjUyQnYlMjUyQkxvcyUyNTJCQW5nZWxlcyUyNTJCNjBHampROGl4QnVsLmpwZw==

 Check this out:

“Torres, a 19-year-old shortstop with more tools than Mr. Goodwrench, was the headliner in the Cubs-Yankees swap. Unless everybody who has watched Torres is wrong, the 6-foot-1, 175-pound native of Caracas, Venezuela, will play in the big leagues. And many predict he will play well. 

B4INREMOTE-aHR0cHM6Ly8yLmJwLmJsb2dzcG90LmNvbS8tY1loNlRjVi1sQWcvV0JTVkpmRFk3dEkvQUFBQUFBQUE0bFEvaGNGdEJMc1RITjA1b2xMUmRNRVdpQ3VFdERtWnF4OXB3Q0xjQi9zNjQwL0dsZXliZXJfVG9ycmVzVEFNMl8wNDQzM2g5aF91Mmxrb2h1aS5qcGc=

If a small sample of eight games in the AFL can be used as a measuring stick, Torres is laying down a solid foundation. Going into Friday’s action against the Surprise Saguaros, Torres was hitting .375 (10-for-28) with three homers, seven RBIs, a 1.221 OPS and a .471 on-base percentage.”

Great little nugget that can make you smile. And so, while we are all drooling and wondering about if we will get back Chapman next season after he comes a free agent with the Cubs, trust me when I tell you, guys like Torres, or even Clint Frazier and Justus Sheffield are in fact the real deal. Just look at Baseball America‘s list of the Yankees Top 10 prospects:

Just a good morning reminder.  The future is coming.
