Gleyber Torres’ lack of hustle was on display in another dreadful Yankees loss



Gleyber Torres had a little tussle with hustle. 

“Hustle” is largely a buzzword for oldhead baseball fans to excoriate certain players who are struggling or teams that are in the tank. But when you’re hitting under .200 on a 6-11 baseball team, hustle means a little bit more than that.

On Wednesday, the Yankees’ shortstop seemingly gave minimum effort on a nubbed check-swing ground ball, packing it in about 87 feet before getting to first in a three-run game in the seventh inning.

The Yankees would lose 4-1 to the Braves and continue their problematic start to the season. They’re now in the AL East cellar and their vaunted offense has been one of the worst all-around units in the game, scoring 3.47 runs per game.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said after the game that Torres would be called into the principal’s office to have a nice chat about the play.

Needless to say, every baserunner counts in the late stages of a three-run game, and Torres is slashing .186/.294/.220 early in the season. Consider this a teachable moment.

He is only 24, after all.
