Default gleyber torres (yanks

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Yankees are planning to give Gleyber Torres a legitimate crack at their Opening Day roster, and the 20-year-old top prospect has vowed to hit the ground running this spring.
Torres is among the earliest-arriving players at Yankees camp, working out on Monday morning at the George M. Steinbrenner Field complex. Tyler Austin, Greg Bird, Didi Gregorius, Aaron Judge, Ronald Torreyes, Luis Severino and Tyler Wade were also spotted on site.
"There's a lot of questions and everything," Torres said, when asked about his chances of going north with the team. "I don't put my mentality in that. It's just, I want to work hard and enjoy every opportunity. I'll play hard and we'll see what happens in the future."
Following Gregorius' injury last March, there were several coaches who lobbied for Torres to begin the year as the Yankees' Opening Day shortstop. General manager Brian Cashman opted to keep Torres in the Minors, saying that he didn't want Torres "drinking from a fire hose in April."
Torres advanced quickly, batting .273/.367/.496 in 32 games at Double-A Trenton before joining Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He played 23 games for the RailRiders, hitting .309/.406/.457 before sustaining a season-ending injury to his non-throwing elbow in June.
Following Monday's workout, Torres said that his left elbow has returned to feeling "100 percent" and that he has not been limited in workouts. Torres even asked the Yankees if he could play winter ball, but he was instructed to focus upon being ready for the spring.
