New York Post | George A. King III: Gleyber Torres broke out last season with 38 dingers and was poised to continue his ascent as one of the most productive Yankees in 2020. The season has yet to begin (if it ever will), but regardless, the Yanks could still lock up the 23-year-old and offer an extension like they did with Luis Severino and Aaron Hicks. Could they be waiting to see how he handles a full-time role at shortstop?

New York Post | George A. King III: Another piece by King here, which provides a look at the challenges Yankees scouts are currently facing with travel restrictions and the lack of amateur baseball. King spoke with Damon Oppenheimer, the team’s VP of domestic amateur scouting, about how the process has been dramatically affected by season cancellations.

Boston Globe | Peter Abraham: That’s right, we’re going into enemy territory for this one. Here, Brian Cashman gives his take on the Red Sox operation and how he thinks Chaim Bloom will fare as the team’s GM. Also, this piece details just how much turnover Boston’s front office has had over the past two decades, while Cashman has held steady with the Yankees.
