Gleyber Torres hit a grounder that shortstop Ceddanne Rafaela snagged with a dive. Rafaela got to his feet and threw to first, but Torres beat the throw to load the bases with one out in a scoreless game.

He immediately left the game and was replaced by Oswaldo Cabrera. New York Yankees went on to take a 3-0 lead before eventually falling to the Red Sox.

No plans for imaging

Gleyber Torres had previously left a June 20 game against Baltimore due to right groin tightness. The Yankees said he was examined at the stadium and there were no plans for imaging at this time.

Gleyber Torres is hitting .223 with eight home runs and 33 RBIs, but batted .308 (8 for 26) in his last seven games.

Injury concerns for Yankees

The Yankees are already missing first baseman Anthony Rizzo, sidelined since June 16 by a broken forearm, and designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton, out since June 22 because of a strained hamstring.
