Didi Gregorius went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Orioles.

The homer tied the game in the eighth inning. It would remain tied until the Orioles pulled away in the 14th. Gregorius slugged 25 home runs last season despite missing the early part of the year with a shoulder strain. With Yankee Stadium (and the short porch in right field) as the backdrop, Gregorius could push for 30 homers this year.
Apr 7 - 2:00 AM

Didi Gregorius went 4-for-4 with two home runs, a double, eight RBI, a walk, and three runs scored in the Yankees' 11-4 rout of the Rays on Tuesday.

Yowza. Gregorius doubled in his first plate appearance, launched a go-ahead three-run shot off Chris Archer in his second plate appearance, drew a walk in his third appearance, clubbed another three-run bomb in his fourth plate appearance, and added a two-run single in his fifth and final plate appearance of the afternoon. It wasn't even a particularly great day for offense at Yankee Stadium with fog and drizzle hovering over the Bronx for all eight-and-a-half innings. Gregorius is the first Yankees shortstop in franchise history to tally eight RBI in a single game.
Apr 3 - 7:54 PM

Didi Gregorius scored two runs while going 2-for-3 with a walk against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Gregorius doubled and tripled in the Yankees’ victory. The 28-year-old hit cleanup against right-hander Aaron Sanchez on Friday after batting sixth against southpaw J.A. Happ on Opening Day. Assuming Gregorius continues to hit in the middle of the order against righties, he could top the 87 RBI he posted last season.
Mar 30 - 10:11 PM

Didi Gregorius slugged his fifth Grapefruit League home run in the Yankees' 5-1 win over the Braves on Monday.

It was a two-run shot in the first inning off Braves starter Brandon McCarthy. Gregorious has put up a .944 OPS in 56 plate appearances this spring. The 28-year-old shortstop looks more than ready for Opening Day.
Mar 26 - 10:19 PM

Didi Gregorius delivered his first homer of the spring Thursday off the Phillies' Ben Lively.

Gregorius is 6-for-16 through seven games. It will be interesting to see if he's able to maintain last year's power numbers this season, considering that his exit velocity statistics are so thoroughly unimpressive. He has a chance to remain quite valuable for fantasy purposes if he stays in the middle of the Yankees order, but we're guessing he'll disappoint.
Mar 8 - 5:25 PM

Yankees and SS Didi Gregorius avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $8.25 million contract.

The shortstop was arbitration-eligible for the second time. Gregorius sported a .287/.318/.478 batting line with 25 bombs last season.
Jan 12 - 5:37 PM

Didi Gregorius hit two homers and knocked in three runs to help the Yankees to a 5-2 victory over the Indians in Game 5 of the ALDS on Wednesday.

When we say Gregorius was the early offense for New York in this one, we mean it. All three runs were knocked in by the shortstop up until Brett Gardner's two-run single in the ninth. And outside of Didi's two blasts off of Corey Kluber and that Gardner hit, the Yankees really didn't do much major damage at the plate. It's just another example of how much Gregorius has improved as a hitter since coming to New York. He'll need another big series if the Yankees are going to contend in the ALCS against Houston. That best-of-seven series begins Friday.

Didi Gregorius hit a three-run homer as the Yankees beat the Twins in Tuesday night's American League Wild Card Game.

Minnesota went up 3-0 in the top of the first inning, but Brett Gardner drew a leadoff walk in the bottom of the first, Aaron Judge singled, and then Didi Gregorius belted a one-out game-tying blast into the right-field seats at Yankee Stadium. New York would go on to win the loser-goes-home tilt 8-4. This was the Yankees' first postseason victory without Derek Jeter since 1995. Gregorius was Jeter's successor at the shortstop position in New York.

Didi Gregorius had two hits, scored a run and stole a base Friday against the Blue Jays.

He singled in the first inning and also in the sixth, adding his third stolen base of the season after the latter. Gregorius has scuffled a bit over the last week, so he'll hope to string together some hits this weekend before the playoffs.

Didi Gregorius is absent from Tuesday's lineup versus the Rays.

It's a routine day of rest. Ronald Torreyes will start at shortstop.
Tue, Sep 26, 2017 03:39:00 PM

Didi Gregorius hit his 25th home run of the season Wednesday in the Yankees' 11-3 rout of the Twins.

It was a three-run shot in the bottom of the fourth inning, capping off a six-run frame for the Bronx Bombers. Gregorius can now claim the highest single-season home run total of any shortstop in Yankees history. Derek Jeter hit 24 back in 1999.
Wed, Sep 20, 2017 04:43:00 PM

Didi Gregorius hit his 24th homer of the season in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

That homer ties Gregorius with Derek Jeter for the most homers in a season for a New York shortstop. It's hard to believe there was a point where people weren't sure if he could hit. Along with the homers, he's put up a commendable .294/.327/.495 line while playing quality defense at a premium position.

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in a lopsided defeat of the Orioles on Saturday.

He cracked a three-run bomb off starter Jeremy Hellickson to kick off the scoring in the third inning. The shortstop is having a very nice season at the dish. He has a .295 batting average with 23 home runs, 80 RBI and 68 runs scored in 124 games.
Sat, Sep 16, 2017 08:17:00 PM

Didi Gregorius homered, drew a walk, and drove in four runs in Friday’s win over the Orioles.

Gregorius launched a two-run homer and also had a pair of sacrifice flies. It was his second four-RBI game in the past week. The 27-year-old already has career-highs with 22 homers and 77 RBI to go along with an impressive .291/.324/.482 batting line.
