Needs season-ending Tommy John surgery

FEB. 17 2017 FILE

Gleyber Torres, a New York Yankees prospect and one of the most highly regarded young players in baseball, will undergo Tommy John surgery on his left elbow and miss the rest of this season.

For the New York Yankees, the worst possible news has come out of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Torres, who was at Class A when the Yankees acquired him, began this season at Class AA Trenton, where he hit.273 with five home runs and an.863 on-base-plus-slugging percentage, before advancing to Class AAA on May 22.

Prosecutors rest their case at Bill Cosby's trial
The two met while Constand was working as a sports director at Temple University where Cosby served on the board of trustees. That means jurors will only hear from him through the deposition from Constand's civil lawsuit and a prior police interview.

Torres, playing with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, suffered what was then called a hyper-extended left elbow on a play at the plate during the top of the fourth inning of the RailRiders' game in Buffalo on Saturday.

The Yankees expect Torres to be recovered in time for spring training in 2018, but on Sunday the prospect thought he was okay, tweeting: "Thank you all for your good wishes. Through 23 games, the 6'1" infielder was batting.309 with two home runs, 16 RBI and a.368 mark with RISP. He was a natural replacement for the struggling Chase Headley. After helping Chicago win the World Series, Chapman returned to NY over the winter on a five-year deal worth $86 million.
