Torres appeared to be on his way to becoming one of the top players in the game at the time, but his subsequent seasons were disappointing.
After switching to shortstop owing to Gregorius’ departure in the off-season, he hit.243 in 42 games during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, with only two home runs and 16 RBIs.
His OPS+ dropped from 104 to 103. He was terrific in the Wild Card Series against the Cleveland Indians, going 5 for 7 with a homer, 3 runs and 3 RBIs, and again played well when the Yankees were eliminated by the Tampa Bay Rays in the Division Series, batting .313 with another homer.
In 2021, he was anticipated to rebound, but instead saw his OPS+ drop below 100, to 92, and his defensive issues became so severe that the Yankees opted to transfer him back to second base.
He batted .259 in 127 games with nine homers and 51 RBIs, then went 0 for 4 in the Wild Card Game, which the Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox.
Before the 2022 season, the Yankees acquired a couple of infielders in trades, 3B Josh Donaldson and SS Isiah Kiner-Falefa, the latter a far superior fielder than Torres, as well as re-signing 1B Anthony Rizzo as a free agent.
