According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Yankees were "a bit dismayed" at how Didi Gregorius (shoulder) was used in the World Baseball Classic.
Gregorius strained his right shoulder Saturday while playing in an exhibition game for Team Netherlands. Per Heyman, the Yankees are upset that Gregorius got hurt playing second base, a position he hasn't played since 2014. "It is what it is," said manager Joe Girardi. "He’s hurt. There’s nothing you can do about it." Ronald Torreyes and Tyler Wade are the most likely candidates to fill in at shortstop during his absence. Mar 23 - 9:43 PM

Date:

Didi Gregorius has been shut down for two weeks due to a right shoulder strain.

It could have been worse, but obviously Gregorius can be ruled out for Opening Day and Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the shortstop could miss all of April. Tyler Wade or possibly Ronald Torreyes will probably be the primary shortstop for the Yankees to begin the regular season. The club could also consider using Starlin Castro there.
Mar 21 - 3:58 PM

Didi Gregorius has left Team Netherlands because of a right shoulder injury.

Gregorius is flying back to Yankees camp in Tampa for more tests Monday after undergoing a preliminary MRI on Sunday. The initial diagnosis is a hematoma of the subcapsular muscle. There should be more clarity on the situation by Tuesday. Gregorius obviously won't be suiting up for Team Netherlands against Team Puerto Rico in the WBC semifinals on Monday night.
Mar 20 - 11:26 AM

Didi Gregorius finished 2-for-3 with five RBI and three runs scored as Team Netherlands routed Team Israel 12-2 on Monday in the World Baseball Classic.

Gregorius contributed an RBI double to the Netherlands' four-run third inning, a three-run homer to the Netherlands' four-run fourth inning, and a sacrifice fly to the Netherlands' two-run eighth inning. The Yankees shortstop is batting .500 with a 1.500 OPS so far in the WBC.
Mar 13 - 9:29 AM

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with three doubles, three RBI, and two runs scored in Team Netherlands' victory over Chinese Taipei.

It was a back-and-forth affair. Gregorius, who was serving as the DH, put the Netherlands ahead with a two-run double in the fourth inning before later tying the game with another double in the bottom of the eighth. The Netherlands would eventually win in walk-off fashion in the ninth to advance to the second round of the tournament.
Mar 8 - 8:31 AM

Didi Gregorius is expected to play for the Netherlands in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

Yet another quality option for Netherlands' infield, joining Xander Bogaerts, Andrelton Simmons, Jonathan Schoop, and Jurickson Profar. Gregorius is coming off a breakout season where he batted .276/.304/.447 with 20 home runs and 70 RBI over 153 games.
Jan 24 - 3:31 PM

Yankees and SS Didi Gregorius avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.1 million contract.

Gregorius had a breakout season at the plate for the Yanks in 2016, hitting .276/.304/.447 with 20 home runs. He'll be eligible for arbitration for a final time next winter.
Jan 13 - 11:51 AM

Didi Gregorius slugged a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Gregorius' dinger off of Marco Estrada to lead off the seventh inning knotted the game up at the time. The Yankees wound up taking the lead in the top of the ninth but then gave in back in the bottom of the frame. Gregorius' 19 longballs exceed his previous career high by 10.

Didi Gregorius socked a pinch-hit, solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

Gregorius has been banged up and struggled of late, as he was on the bench for the second straight game. However, he delivered the second of back-to-back dingers (Jacoby Ellsbury had the first) in the seventh as the Yankees broke a scoreless tie. Gregorius could be back in there Wednesday even with Clayton Kershaw on the mound.
Tue, Sep 13, 2016 10:19:00 PM

Didi Gregorius is out of the Yankees' lineup for the second straight day Tuesday.

Gregorius has struggled recently while battling some bumps and bruises, so Yankees manager Joe Girardi is trying to give him some time off. It's possible he could be available to pinch hit.
Tue, Sep 13, 2016 03:47:00 PM

Didi Gregorius could get a couple days off in a row.

He's out of the Yankees' lineup on Monday night, with Ronald Torreyes filling in at shortstop. Gregorius was hit in the right arm by a pitch last weekend and is also dealing with some other minor ailments. Yankees manager Joe Girardi described the 17-homer shortstop as "really beat up."
Mon, Sep 12, 2016 03:57:00 PM

Didi Gregorius (arm) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in his return to action Monday against the Blue Jays.

Gregorius was hit in the arm by a right pitch on Saturday and sat out Sunday's game while dealing with some soreness, but he's already feeling better.
Tue, Sep 6, 2016 09:16:00 AM

Didi Gregorius isn't playing Sunday due to soreness in his arm following a hit by pitch Saturday.

It doesn't sound like a big deal, but Gregorius needs a little rest. Ronald Torreyes is handling shortstop Sunday.
Sun, Sep 4, 2016 11:44:00 AM

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI against the Royals on Monday.

Gregorius's OBP has been tumbling some, but the power has been impressive; he has 29 doubles to go along with his 17 homers. It's not exactly ideal that he's hitting cleanup for a major league team, but the Yankees lack better options at the moment.
Tue, Aug 30, 2016 12:11:00 AM

Didi Gregorius will bat cleanup Monday against the Royals.

Gregorius has received a handful of chances out of the cleanup spot recently and he'll slide in there again on Monday with Mark Teixeira out of the lineup. Tyler Austin is starting at first base and will bat ninth. Dillon Gee is on the hill for Kansas City.
