      Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Wednesday because of a strained right hip.

      Torres was removed after striking out in his second at-bat in the fourth inning before the Yankees went on to beat the

      Atlanta Braves 6-2.

      Before the series finale against the National League East leaders [url=http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-

      kyzir-white-jersey]http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kyzir-white-jersey[/url] , Yankees manager Aaron Boone

      was upbeat about the status of his prized rookie.

      Torres did not start in Tuesday night’s win, but entered the game late as a defensive replacement.

      ”We’re hoping it’s a short stint. But we think we’ve got to deal with it this time because there is a small strain

      there,” Boone said outside the home clubhouse after the game.

      ”Hopefully it won’t be something that it’s too long. Probably take us up to the All-Star break.”

      Boone said the club would assess the situation with a day off Thursday before heading to Toronto for the start of an 11-

      game, three-city road trip leading into the All-Star Game in Washington.

      Torres is hitting .294 with 15 home runs and 42 RBIs in his first 63 major league games.

      He had an MRI and was not available to talk to reporters after the game.

      Neil Walker, who went over from third base to second at the start of the fifth inning, could get most of the work in Torres

      ’ absence.

      Another option could be Ronald Torreyes, but he’s been on the temporary inactive list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

      for more than a week to deal with a personal issue. Brandon Drury, who started 114 games at second for Arizona last season,

      could also figure into the mix.

      Boone wasn’t sure how the injury initially occurred, pointing out that Torres had made some ”good base running plays a

      couple of nights ago when he moved up on some wild pitches.”

      The Yankees manager also added that if the injury had occurred late in the season, it would’ve been ”possible” for the

      phenom to be back on the field shortly.

      But the team with the second-best record in baseball took the safe route.

      ”Anytime you’re talking about groin, hamstring [url=http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kalen-ballage-

      jersey]http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kalen-ballage-jersey[/url] , quads, once you have a strain in

      there, you push through it you can make it a worse strain,” Boone said.

      ”And now you’re talking weeks and months. Stuff like that. So I think the wise thing is to do this now. Gleyber wants to

      take a couple of days, work through it. But I think he also understands this is the best thing for him and for us.”

      For the Chicago Cubs, the last few days have felt like Christmas in July.

      The team has won five games in a row and will try to stretch it to six on Wednesday afternoon in a Fourth of July matinee.

      “Everything is believable,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters when asked about his team’s recent hot streak. “We

      believe in everything right now. Santa Claus is absolutely true.

      “When you get to that point and you get that kind of confidence, you don’t want to do anything to nick it.”

      Chicago (48-35) has climbed 13 games above .500 to match its high-water mark. The Cubs have a chance to set a new high when

      they host the Detroit Tigers (38-49) in the finale of a two-game series at Wrigley Field.

      All of the Cubs’ five wins during the streak have been in come-from-behind fashion.

      “One of our concepts is to score first,” Maddon said. “One of our concepts is to win the inning. But I think this is

      maybe the residue of our starting pitching not being what it probably is. We’ve given up more runs early from our starters

      that we didn’t anticipate happening.

      “But it’s a tightly knit group. They’re there to pick everybody else up. So, OK, they’ve scored a couple runs. There’s

      no quit. The chatter in the dugout is great, all that stuff is outstanding. I just think that the come-from-behind

      component right now is based on our starters not pitching to their capabilities yet.”

      That said

      [/url] , the Cubs will look for a solid start from

      left-hander Jose Quintana (6-6, 4.31 ERA) in his 17th start of the season. The 29-year-old has allowed three earned runs or

      fewer in nine of his past 12 starts.

      In 18 career starts against the Tigers, Quintana is 5-5 with a 4.37 ERA. The Colombia native has walked 26 and struck out

      82 in 111 1/3 innings.

      The Tigers will counter with veteran left-hander Francisco Liriano (3-4, 3.99 ERA), who is scheduled to make his 13th start

      of the season. The burly southpaw carries a career record of 105-103 with a 4.14 ERA in 335 career games.

      More than a few teams could be scouting the 34-year-old Liriano as the trade deadline approaches. He is coming off a

      quality start against the Toronto Blue Jays but has not logged a victory since April 17 against the Baltimore Orioles.

      In 14 career starts against the Cubs, Liriano is 5-4 with a 3.27 ERA. He most recently faced the club in 2016, when he

      posted an 0-2 record with a 7.63 ERA in three starts with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Toronto Blue Jays.

      The Tigers could turn to a six-man rotation in the next couple weeks, which is fine with Liriano.

      “I think that would work,” Liriano said recently to mlive.com. “It wouldn’t bother me at all. I don’t know about any

      other guys. (Blaine) Hardy has been doing a great job, so it’s hard to put him in the bullpen with the way he’s throwing

      the ball right now. I think that’s a great idea.”

      Injured Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant (shoulder) is not expected to play Wednesday. He is hitting .280 with nine home runs

      and 36 RBIs in 66 games this season.
