The New York Yankees have too many middle infielders on the roster, and there's a good chance that will change during MLB free agency. Gleyber Torres is considered the mostly likely to be moved if the Yankees pull of a trade.

Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman told reporters at the GM Meetings in Las Vegas that the team is listening to trade offers for some of their infielders. MLB Network's Joel Sherman said he believes that Torres is available as New York tries to trade one of its second basemen or shortstops.

Torres has been in trade rumors since July when the Yankees reportedly considered sending him to the Miami Marlins in exchange for starting pitcher Pablo Lopez. New York could revisit that deal or look to trade Torres in exchange for another starter. Lopez is reportedly available this offseason.

The Yankees moved Torres from shortstop to second base in 2022. The 25-year-old hit .257/.310/.451 with 24 home runs in 140 games.

Because of his age and two All-Stars appearances in his young career, Torres could net the Yankees a quality pitcher in a trade. New York probably prefers to trade Torres over their younger and less expensive middle infield options.

Torres is projected to make $9.6 million in arbitration for the 2023 season, according to Spotrac. He is eligible to become a free agent after the 2024 season.

Gerrit Cole and Giancarlo Stanton are signed to contracts worth north of $300 million. The Yankees could soon be paying Aaron Judge more than either of those players. New York might want to avoid paying Torres a long-term deal.

Minor-league shortstop Anthony Volpe is the Yankees' top-ranked prospect. Shortstop Oswald Peraza is New York's No. 3 prospect, and he might be ready to start in the majors next season after hitting .306 in 49 major-league at-bats. Utility infielder Oswaldo Cabrera played 44 games in 2022 after being called up and became one of the Yankees' most important players.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa played 138 games at shortstop in his first season with the Yankees. Kiner-Falefa doesn't have much trade value because of his .624 OPS and disappointing defense.

The Yankees were eliminated by the Houston Astros in the ALCS for the third time since 2017.
