Watch: Orioles announcer has hilarious reaction to Gleyber Torres homer
New York Yankees phenom Gleyber Torres has been terrorizing Baltimore Orioles pitching ever since entering the league, and the O’s announcers have just about had it with him.
The All-Star infielder stepped up to the plate in the second inning of Monday’s game between the two teams, prompting Baltimore play-by-play broadcaster Gary Thorne to note how Torres has torched the Orioles with a .386 lifetime average against them. As Thorne was almost mid-sentence, Torres, wouldn’t you know it, smacked a homer to left-center to put the Yankees on the board.
This prompted an exasperated Thorne to yell out, “GET HIM OUT OF HERE!” and openly question why the O’s still chose to pitch to Torres. Take a listen:
The Orioles announcers have had ENOUGH of Gleyber Torres

The 22-year-old Torres has been almost as good against everyone else as well, entering play on Monday with a .293/.330/.503 slash line on the season to go along with eight homers and 21 RBIs. As for the Orioles, it has been another nauseating season with their AL-worst record of 15-31. To make matters worse, Torres isn’t even the only Yankee to disrespect them in recent times.
