Gleyber Torres continues to bat ninth for Yankees despite excellent offensive production

“I’m not protecting him by any means. He’s a good player and wherever I hit him, I don’t worry about him,” Boone said of Torres, who hit a game-tying solo homer in the fifth inning of the Yankees’ 5-4 loss to the Nationals. “More just our lineup and how it sets up, I feel like the nine hole is such a valuable spot in our order because of our team. So that plays into it a little bit. And there will be a select day, maybe in the coming days frankly where I could hit him fifth or sixth.
