NEW YORK - Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday afternoon after an MRI revealed he had a right hip strain.
New York is officially beginning the DL stint during its off day Thursday, as team officials continue to talk through making a corresponding roster move ahead of a three-city road trip the Yankees are heading on beginning Friday in Toronto.
The injury, which forced Torres out of Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Atlanta Braves, was initially believed to be an aggravation of some "tightness" that had nagged Torres earlier this week.
"We're hoping it's a short stint," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "Probably take us up to the All-Star Break."
