New York Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres just won’t stop and has taken home the AFL player of the week award for Week 5. 

Want any more reason to believe the New York Yankees‘ future is bright as ever? You’ve come to the right place.

Shortstop and second base prospect Gleyber Torres, who’s making the Arizona Fall League look easier than the little league level, has taken home the player of the week award for Week 5.

Torres went 6-for-19 (.600) with three runs scored, a double, a triple, and two stolen bases this week. Overall, the 19-year old is tied for the batting lead at .379 (22-for-58) and leads it with a .500 OBP (36 total bases in 17 games).

Thanks to his second player of the week award (won it back in Week 2), Torres — acquired in the Aroldis Chapman deal — could be on his way to winning the most valuable player award as well, which would be the third straight Yankees’ prospect to do so.

Two years ago, Greg Bird won. Last year, Gary Sanchez did. Let’s just say those two worked out pretty well in their first cup of coffee in the majors.
