Hotshot prospect Gleyber Torres has been in camp for the Yankees and at 100 percent after Tommy John surgery last year on his non-throwing elbow. "He's full go. No restrictions," Aaron Boone said Saturday. Keith Law's No. 5 overall prospect, Torres has a chance to make the team as the starting second baseman after hitting .287/.383/.480 in 55 games in the minors. Boone said he'll get some time at third base and shortstop: "That's part of the plan, especially early in camp."

Yankees lefty Jordan Montgomery rode the subway to Yankee Stadium as a rookie last season -- even after a mishap soon after getting called up when he got off at the wrong stop. He said he did get recognized a few times by the end of the season, but for now plans on taking it again this season -- although admitted he does have the Uber app on his phone. I asked him if Giancarlo Stanton should take the subway. "No, you won't see him on there one time," he laughed.

Phillies GM Matt Klentak told me the other day the club will give second base prospect Scott Kingery -- No. 33 on Keith Law's top 100 prospects list -- reps at multiple positions in spring training and Triple-A. Klentak said Kingery is a dynamic defender at second and can handle shortstop and will play some third and outfield. He didn't play short in college only because he was a teammate of Pirates prospect Kevin Newman. It's a great idea. Cesar Hernandez is a solid player (3.1 WAR in 2017), so the Phillies don't HAVE to trade him and maybe Kingery develops into a Ben Zobrist-like super-utility guy.

Dustin Pedroia looked back at 2004, 2007 and 2013 Red Sox teams that had group of players in leadership role. "I've got to do a better job of getting everyone to understand that it's not just one guy," said Pedroia, who has expressed as much to Xander Bogaerts and others.

Dustin Pedroia's take on why Red Sox didn't have as much fun as they should have last season: Team got too caught up in day-to-day results rather than focusing on process and bigger picture.
