The New York Yankees Gleyber Torres recently went on the DL with a swollen rotator cuff. It was seen to be a quick stint, needing just the seven days to get healthy.

The shortstop -- who seemingly is sticking there with reports that the second base experiment is over -- returned from the DL Friday night to an 0-for-3 performance. He put that behind him Saturday, going 3-for-4, falling a triple short of the cycle.
