  Yankees may get Gerrit Cole as Pirates know Torres off the table Gerrit Cole could end up being a Yankee after all.The righthander, who refused to sign with the Bronx Bombers after they selected him in the 2008 draft, is the cornerstone of talks between the Yankees and Pirates that have resumed now that the Bucs have given up hopes of getting super prospect Gleyber Torres back in return, according to Yankee sources. A deal was not imminent as of Friday evening, a Yankee source emphasized.

Yankees' Brian Cashman : Gleyber Torres untouchable in any trade. Power wasn't necessarily expected to be part of Torres ' repertoire when he was called up April 21. His 13 in the big leagues in just 156 at-bats have pleased Cashman and others around the team.

Gleyber Torres isn’t going anywhere.

With ​Starlin Castro being shipped to Miami and ​Chase Headley heading back to San Diego, speculation has been circulating whether or not the Yankees would promote their top prospect Gleyber Torres to fill in either roll.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman revealed in an interview with MLB.com that Torres probably has a chance to crack the Opening Day roster.

  Yankees are far improved from last year, have higher expectations A year ago, the Yankees were in a much different place than they are now. The Red Sox were considered the heavy favorites to win the AL East after adding Chris Sale, and the Baby Bombers were very much an unknown commodity, full of potential but facing several question marks. Still, Joe Girardi wasn't about to concede in late December, telling reporters at the 2016 Pinstripe Bowl: "I think we're going to be a club that is fighting for our division."As it turned out, Girardi was right.

Gleyber David Torres Castro (born December 13, 1996) is a Venezuelan professional baseball second baseman and shortstop for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball (MLB).
