Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres, who exited Friday’s game against the Blue Jays with an injury to his right leg after he slipped and fell on the outfield grass, had an MRI today on his right hamstring, per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.

The 22-year-old Torres told skipper Aaron Boone that he felt good this morning, but the team wanted to be sure there weren't any serious problems. According to Hoch, the MRI came back clear, good news for the Yankees. Assuming he continues to feel better in the coming days, Torres shouldn’t miss an extended period of time.

While the Yankees' season has been defined by an improbable run of injured stars, Torres has been one of the few regulars who has managed to stay on his feet all season, leading the team with 140 games played. That alone makes it doubly frustrating that the health of the budding star might be compromised so late in the season.

Yankees' Betances suffers partial Achilles tear jumping on mound

Yankees' Betances suffers partial Achilles tear jumping on mound New York Yankees reliever Dellin Betances suffered a partial left Achilles tear during his season debut on Sunday, the team announced Tuesday, according to Lindsey Adler of The Athletic. Betances suffered the injury while jumping on the mound in Toronto, manager Aaron Boone said, according to James Wagner of The New York Times. He appeared to suffer the injury while dancing off the mound after recording the second out of the fourth inning, erroneously thinking the strikeout was the final out of the frame.

After a fantastic rookie season in 2018, Torres has followed that with an even better 2019. He is hitting .284 with 38 homers and 90 RBIs and has seen his OPS jump to .889. He has even managed to hold his own at shortstop, posting respectable advanced defensive stats in more than 650 innings there.

With the postseason right around the corner and home-field advantage still at stake, another injury scare is the last thing the Yankees need in late September. However, one could point to the return of slugger Giancarlo Stanton and starter Luis Severino, along with the impending arrivals of DH Edwin Encarnacion (oblique strain) and catcher Gary Sanchez (groin), as silver linings in the situation.
