Gleyber Torres’ injury could’ve been worse.

Instead, it appears to just be a minor setback.

The Yankees’ top prospect was placed on the 7-day minor-league disabled list, retroactive to Tuesday, with mild right rotator cuff tendinitis, the team said.

Torres had been scratched from Double-A Trenton’s lineup on Tuesday after experiencing soreness in his shoulder. Joe Girardi was under the impression the 20-year-old shortstop would have to undergo an MRI.

It didn’t sound promising.

Fortunately, it appears that this is an injury Torres should be able to recover from rather quickly, with Girardi saying he “probably won’t be down that long.”

Torres has produced a .237/.341/.342 batting line in 10 games for the Thunder while also rotating between his natural position, short, and second and third base — all potentially positions he could ultimately end up when he gets to the Yankees.
