Didi Gregorius is not in the Yankees lineup Thursday against the Athletics.

He'll take a seat after getting criticized by manager Joe Girardi for a base-running blunder in the seventh inning of Wednesday night's loss. With Gregorius on the pine, Ronald Torreyes will get the nod at shortstop. He's batting ninth.
Apr 21 - 4:05 PM

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

The Yankees have been scuffling mightily with the bats as of late, but Gregorius has played nicely in spots. He whacked a solo homer off Kendall Graveman in the second inning on Wednesday, his second home run of the season. In 44 at-bats, the shortstop is now hitting .250/.261/.432 with two doubles, the pair of homers, four RBI and three runs scored.
Apr 20 - 10:20 PM

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-3 with two runs scored in the Yankees' 7-1 win over the Orioles on Friday.

The Yankees could add some offense to their lineup by sitting Gregorius against left-handers this year, with Starlin Castro playing short and Rob Refsnyder at second, but they probably won't go that route unless Gregorius gets off to a bad start. They're certainly better defensively with him at short and Castro at second.
Mar 11 - 3:47 PM

Yankees and SS Didi Gregorius avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.425 million contract.

It's just a hair over the midpoint of figures that were exchanged by the two sides last Friday. Gregorius, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time, had a .267/.316/.369 batting line with nine homers and 54 RBI in his first season in pinstripes.
Jan 18 - 5:27 PM

Didi Gregorius requested $2.525 million and was offered $2.3 million by the Yankees when arbitration figures were exchanged Friday.

It's small gap, so the two sides should be able to come together. Gregorius started slow but finished strong for the Bombers in 2015, ultimately settling for a .267/.316/.369 batting line with nine homers and 54 RBI.
Jan 15 - 5:06 PM

Didi Gregorius went 1-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs as the Yankees fell to the White Sox on Friday.

His two-run single in the fourth inning accounted for all of the Yankees scoring in the contest. He has done a respectable job in his first season as the team's starting shortstop, slashing .267/.316/.369 with nine homers and 54 RBI.

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in a losing effort Friday against the Blue Jays.

Gregorius had an RBI single in the fourth inning he took LaTroy Hawkins deep for a three-run shot in the sixth. The 25-year-old has really picked up his production as the season has moved along, hitting .308 with five home runs and 34 RBI over his last 61 games. Add in his excellent defense and he has more than held his own during his first season in the Bronx.

Didi Gregorius had an RBI double in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

Gregorius had a chance to put the Yankees in front in the bottom of the eighth inning, but he hit a liner right at second baseman Logan Forsythe. Either way, the 25-year-old continues to sting the ball. He's batting .323 dating back to the All-Star break.

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a home run and three runs scored, and the Yankees outlasted the Red Sox 13-8 on Wednesday.

Gregorius scored three of the team's 13 runs and hit one of their five homers on the afternoon. It was the third homer in his last seven games as Gregorius has been one of the hottest hitters in the game lately. He's 16-for-28 in that span, collecting 12 RBI and eight runs scored. The shortstop is now batting a respectable .272/.321/.372 with eight home runs, 44 RBI and 49 runs scored on the year.

Didi Gregorius singled four times and knocked in a run in five at-bats, but the Yankees fell 4-3 to the Red Sox on Monday.

Gregorius knocked in a run in the fourth inning to tie the game at 4-4. He stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning, but couldn't knock in the tying run as he hit a fly ball to right field to end the game. The shortstop has had a nice week at the plate, currently on a five-game hitting streak during which he is batting .619 (13-for-21) with two home runs and 11 RBI.

Didi Gregorius posted a huge game in Friday's 15-4 win over the Braves, hitting a three-run homer and finishing with six total RBI.

Yowza yowza. Gregorius jumped into the action early with a three-run homer off Williams Perez in the first inning. He would add a two-run single in the second, then slouch off on the RBI binge until the eighth, when he hit an RBI single just for fun. When the dust settled, the Yankee shortstop had finished 4-for-5 with six RBI. This was his second four-hit game of the season and the six RBI represented a season high. For the year, he's slashing .260/.306/.355 with seven homers and 40 RBI.

Didi Gregorius went 4-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored in a lopsided win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

Gregorius had a three-run triple in the Yankees' 11-run second inning. He added three more singles on the night, raising his batting average nine points with one huge game. Even with nights like Tuesday -- and Monday, when he went 3-for-4 with four RBI -- Gregorius is a defense-first shortstop who is hitting .257/.307/.354 on the year.

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a two-run single and a two-run home run as the Yankees downed the Rangers on Monday.

Gregorius tied the game at 2-2 in the third inning when he drilled a two-run home run off of Matt Harrison. He added insurance in the seventh inning with a two-run single. It's only the fifth multi-RBI game of the season for the shortstop, who has left Yankees fans pining for Derek Jeter as he's hitting .248/.297/.340 with five home runs and 25 RBI.
