Free agency looming, Gleyber hopes 'to be a Yankee for life'

February 22, 2024 12:00AM
The manicured mustache that Gleyber Torres sported earlier this week vanished by the time the Yankees took their individual photographs Wednesday morning, with the second baseman explaining that he couldn’t stomach seeing it splashed on 100-foot-tall video screens for each at-bat this season.

So a clean-shaven Torres struck all the familiar poses while mugging for the cameras, alternating between raising his bat and fielding glove while dressed in his bright white pinstripes. It is the only uniform that Torres hopes to wear during his career, though with free agency around the corner, that decision is not in his hands.

“I don’t want to leave from here,” Torres said. “I feel at home right now. I know everybody; [these are] my brothers, my family here. I want to be a Yankee for life.”

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said recently that there have been no negotiations concerning a potential extension for Torres, 27, who slashed .273/.347/.453 with 25 home runs and 68 RBIs in 158 games last season. Torres is earning $14.2 million in his final year under team control.
