Top prospect Gleyber Torres, who has been surging at Triple-A Scranton, has been place on the 7-day minor-league disabled list.
He suffered a hyperextended left elbow while sliding headfirst into home plate during Saturday’s game and left in obvious pain. X-rays were negative.
Torres will undergo further evaluation after returning to Scranton on Monday.
The 20-year-old infielder had doubled before getting hurt. In his previous 10 games, he was hitting .350.
