Watch Now:

Torres (back) was a late scratch from the Yankees' lineup Friday versus the Astros, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Torres was originally set to start at second base against Houston, but he will be forced to sit out and should be considered day-to-day until more information is released about the nature of his back issue. Oswald Peraza will take over at second base while Isiah Kiner-Falefa enters the lineup at third base and bats sixth in the series opener.
