New York Yankees Reportedly Not Planning to Extend Gleyber Torres’ Contract Beyond 2024
The New York Yankees’ second baseman, Gleyber Torres, is set to play his final year under his current MLB contract in 2024. However, if he does not receive an extension offer, the Venezuelan player could become a free agent after the following season. According to Empire Sports Media, the Yankees have made a significant decision regarding Torres and his future with the team.
Possible Departure for Torres?
Empire Sports Media reports that the Yankees organization has no intention of renewing Gleyber Torres’ contract beyond the 2024 campaign. This decision suggests that the Caracas-born second baseman may be entering his final days in the Bronx.
Rumors of Trade Talks
In recent days, there has been a surge of speculation on social media regarding Gleyber Torres’ future. It is rumored that the Boston Red Sox, long-standing rivals of the Yankees, are showing serious interest in acquiring Torres through a trade. The potential trade could involve Alex Verdugo, who is reportedly on New York’s radar as a possible addition to their roster.
Salary Projections for Torres
As Torres enters his last year of arbitration eligibility, projections from MLB Trade Rumors suggest that he could earn a salary of $15.3 million. This would represent a nearly 0 percent increase compared to his earnings in 2023, which amounted to $9.95 million.
