Gleyber Torres accidentally threw a ball at Matt Olson, who is definitely not on his team

Not much has gone wrong for Gleyber Torres during his brief Major League career. Since making his debut back on April 22, MLB Pipeline's No. 5 overall prospect has posted a .910 OPS with three homers and some stellar defense at second base.
But baseball is a humbling game, even for the very best. One minute you're leading your team to a dramatic comeback win and setting franchise records, the next you're accidentally throwing the ball at a baserunner because you think he's on your team:

After Matt Olson led off with a double to right in the seventh inning of Oakland's 10-5 win over the Yankees on Friday, Torres fielded a throw from Aaron Judge ... and promptly threw it directly at Olson, who he assumed was Didi Gregorius. Either that, or he thought plugging was still legal.
