The New York Yankees are having no luck with injuries. Gleyber Torres left Thursday’s game early with an apparent hamstring injury.
Another game, another injury. This time Gleyber Torres is the casualty. While running out a ground ball in the fourth inning, he pulled up lame after stumbling. The New York Yankees moved Tyler Wade to shortstop and put Thairo Estrada in at second base.

The Yankees are saying it’s a hamstring issue, but we don’t know much more than that at this stage.

According to Marly Rivera of ESPN, Gleyber Torres is likely heading to the 10-day injured list with this hamstring injury.
That means Yankee fans need to get used to the idea of Tyler Wade and Thairo Estrada as the double-play combination up the middle. Neither player has produced much offensively in the Bronx, but they should be able to provide solid defense for the time being.
DJ LeMahieu is still nursing a thumb injury that should keep him out at least two more weeks. Until then, the Yankees are going to be shorthanded in the infield.
