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. Oct 11 - 11:49 PM

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.
Sep 29 - 4:53 PM

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

It's a routine day of rest. Ronald Torreyes will start at shortstop.
Sep 26 - 3:39 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.
Sep 20 - 4:43 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.
Sep 17 - 5:20 PM

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.
Sep 16 - 8:17 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.
Sep 15 - 10:03 PM

Didi Gregorius slugged a solo homer and scored two runs on Friday against the Rangers.

Gregorius has established a new career-high with 21 homers, surpassing his total from last year. Keep in mind that he has only played in 116 games this season. He might have had a chance at 30 homers if he started the year healthy.
Sep 9 - 12:46 AM

Didi Gregorius finished 3-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI as the Yankees routed the Orioles 9-1 on Thursday.

Gregorius had been really quiet of late, hitting .206/.280/.320 in his previous 25 games. The Yankees have mostly kept him in the cleanup spot anyway, and he did come through with five RBI in the three games versus Baltimore. He has 20 homers and 67 RBI in 115 games on the season.
Sep 7 - 6:09 PM

Didi Gregorius cracked a two-run homer in Monday's win over the Orioles.

Gregorius cranked one over the right-field wall against Dylan Bundy in the fourth inning. It was his only hit in five trips to the dish in this one. The Yankees' shortstop has now reached the 20-homer plateau in consecutive seasons even after not making his season debut this year until late April due to injury.
Sep 4 - 7:09 PM

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI versus the Tigers on Wednesday.

He delivered an RBI single in the third inning and topped that with a solo bomb in the fifth. The shortstop is having a breakout season at the plate, slashing .312/.340/.506 with 19 home runs and 60 RBI in 101 games. He needs one more dinger to match his career high set in 153 games a year ago.
Aug 24 - 12:39 AM

Didi Gregorius tallied three hits Saturday in the Yankees’ win over the Red Sox.

Didi doubled and singled twice while scoring his lone run on a three-run shot by Tyler Austin in the second inning.

His .312 average is fourth-highest in the American League behind Jose Altuve, Jean Segura and Eric Hosmer.
Aug 19 - 10:30 PM

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-5 with a home run and three runs scored in a win over the Blue Jays.

He hit a solo home run off starter Nick Tepesch in the third inning, then doubled and scored in the fifth. It's not often we see a shortstop batting cleanup like Gregorius did today and he didn't disappoint. He has taken a big step forward at the plate this year, slashing .311/.336/.514 with 18 home runs and 55 RBI in 88 games. He spent a month on the disabled list early in the season. He is two homers shy of matching the career high he set last year.
