2022 Player Outlook
Torres struggled for the better part of the first half of the season (.234/.327/.287) but he turned things around in the second half (.289/.338/.456). It is interesting to note that even though his second half barrel rate jumped to 10.5% and almost doubled his first half rate, he still didn’t come close to matching his HR rate from the 2019 season. Torres’ late season offensive surge seemed to coincide with his move back to second base, a defensive position that he has been most comfortable playing. The Yanks are hoping that a full season at the keystone will provide a spark that will help Torres permanently bounce back from his recent offensive malaise.
