NEW YORK — Yankees manager Aaron Boone was the bearer of bad news after Saturday night’s comeback win over the Mets. Reserve infielder Andrew Velazquez, a late-season Yankees sparkplug who made a lot of recent starts while Gleyber Torres was on the injured list, was optioned to Triple-A. Boone felt terrible telling Velazquez of his demotion back to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Bronx native had become a fan and clubhouse favorite during his first opportunity to play for the Yankees, which lasted a month.

Meanwhile Toxic Torres continues to make errors, strikeout, and not hustle. Give me Velasquez any day.
