Some Yanks wanted Gleyber Torres in big leagues last season

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) On the day top Yankees prospect Gleyber Torres turned 21, New York general manager Brian Cashman revealed the team's big league staff wanted him on last year's opening-day roster.

Shortstop Didi Gregorius injured a shoulder while with the Netherlands for the World Baseball Classic and did not play his first game of the season for the Yankees until April 28. At the time, Torres had not played above Class A, and Cashman was concerned he had never played in cold weather.

"Our major league staff wanted him `now.' They wanted him to break camp and then play him at shortstop," Cashman said Wednesday at the winter meetings. "We just felt it was important for him to crawl before you walk, and walk before you run, and I didn't want him drinking out of a fire hose in April. So I took my time, and I think it was the right move for him and for us."
