Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday because of a strained right hip.
“We’re hoping it’s a short stint,” manager Aaron Boone said, “but we think we’ve got to deal with it this time because there is a small strain there. Hopefully, it won’t be something that it’s too long. Probably take us up to the All-Star break.”
Boone said the club would assess the situation with a day off Thursday before heading to Toronto for the start of an 11-game, three-city trip leading into the All-Star Game in Washington.
Torres is hitting .294 with 15 home runs and 42 RBIs in his first 63 major-league games.
