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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-5 and hit his 14th homer Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Gregorius has the most homers for a Yankees shortstop in 10 years, since Derek Jeter hit 14 in 2006. The franchise record for most homers from a shortstop is 24, also done by Jeter. That's most likely out of reach for Didi, but he's still been quite the nice surprise offensively.

Didi Gregorius went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Indians.

Sunday's solo home run off Carlos Carrasco in the fourth inning was Gregorius' 13th of the season. The 26-year-old shortstop is putting together a well-rounded 2016 season entering the dog days of August and sports a .288/.317/.456 triple-slash for the campaign as a whole. His home run totals have escalated in each of the last three seasons and it is not inconceivable that he could eventually turn into a 20-homer threat given the ballpark he plays in.

Didi Gregorius hit his 12th home run of the year in Tuesday's loss to the Mets.

Gregorius hit a throwaway solo homer in the ninth inning of a lopsided game, but hey, fantasy owners won't complain. The shortstop's strong season continues, as he's now hitting .290/.318/.453 with 46 RBI and 45 runs scored.
Tue, Aug 2, 2016 10:22:00 PM

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

Gregorius continues to get on base in bunches, as Tuesday was his sixth multi-hit game in 14 July contests. He's now hitting .346 this month after batting .337 in June. Gregorius is hitting .299/.332/.468 overall with 41 runs scored and 41 RBI.

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored as the Yankees held off the Indians 5-4 on Thursday.

The home run was Gregorius' 10th of the season, a new single-season high for the shortstop with a few games left before the All-Star break. The dinger was also his fourth in his last eight games as he's closing the first half strong. Gregorius is batting .296/.323/.456 through 80 games.

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 and stole a base against the White Sox on Wednesday.

One of the hits was a double. The steal was his fifth of the season. Known more as a glove-first shortstop, Gregorius has been surprisingly apt with the bat this year. He is slashing a solid .293/.321/.445 with nine home runs on the season.
