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.

Didi Gregorius is not in Thursday's lineup against the Astros.

He'll take a seat against left-hander Dallas Keuchel. Stephen Drew will start at shortstop while Gregorio Petit plays second base.
Jun 25 - 5:05 PM

Didi Gregorius launched a three-run homer on Friday, but it wasn't enough for the Yankees to overcome the Rangers.

His three-run shot, his first of the season, came off Rangers starter Colby Lewis in the fourth inning, cutting the Rangers lead to 7-4 at the time. He has been a major disappointment at the dish early in the season, slashing a mere .217/.278/.278 with 10 RBI.
May 22 - 11:00 PM

Didi Gregorius is expected to get the day off Friday against the Red Sox.

He'll take a seat with left-hander Wade Miley expected to start for Boston. Look for this to be a pretty regular thing until he forces his way into being an everyday player.
Apr 9 - 4:08 PM

Didi Gregorius went 0-for-2 and had a misplay at shortstop before being removed for a pinch-hitter Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Gregorius also went 0-for-2 in Monday's opener and had a huge mental mistake when he was thrown out stealing third base with the Yankees down by five runs. He wasn't charged with an error tonight, but he did make a bad throw to first base after a nice diving stop in the third, giving Devon Travis an infield single. It's been a disappointing opening series from him so far.
Apr 8 - 10:38 PM

Didi Gregorius went 0-for-3 against the Tigers in his return to the starting lineup Thursday.

Gregorius's left wrist isn't 100 percent, but the Yankees aren't particularly worried about it. He has a chance to be out there on Opening Day, but in case he isn't ready, the Yankees had Stephen Drew play shortstop in their other split-squad game today. In that scenario, Drew would likely start at short, with the newly acquired Gregorio Petit at second.
Apr 2 - 4:14 PM

Didi Gregorius (wrist) noted that the swelling in his wrist was subsiding.

Gregorius should be able to play on Thursday. He took part in fielding drills and batting practice on Wednesday and reported full range of motion in the wrist. This is a good sign for the Yankees, who are hopeful that Gregorius will be all-systems-go for Opening Day.
Apr 1 - 12:34 PM

Didi Gregorius (wrist) was not in Wednesday's lineup.

Brendan Ryan will start in Gregorius' place. Gregorius injured his wrist trying to make a diving play on Saturday. Initially, the Yankees hoped he would be able to play by mid-week. His absence doesn't necessarily mean that he'll miss Opening Day and the injury is still being classified as relatively minor.
Apr 1 - 10:47 AM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that there was no timetable for the return of Didi Gregorius (wrist).

The Yankees need to see the swelling in Gregorius' left wrist subside before they're able to give an estimate for his return. He suffered the injury diving for a ball on Saturday. Gregorius previously indicated that he thought he'd be ready to play on Opening Day.
Mar 31 - 12:11 PM

Didi Gregorius (wrist) said he felt much better Sunday.

Gregorius injured his left wrist when he dove for a ball during Saturday's game. He'll rest for three days but believes he'll be fine come Opening Day. Gregorius is slated to be the Yankees' primary shortstop.
Mar 29 - 9:10 AM

Didi Gregorius (wrist) will take the next three days off.

X-rays came back negative on the wrist, which Gregorius sprained diving for a ball, and the Yankees hope a few days of rest will go a long way. Yanks manager Joe Girardi said he hopes to get Gregorius back in the lineup on Wednesday. If that timetable holds true, the 25-year-old should be in the Yankees' lineup on Opening Day.
Mar 28 - 7:04 PM

Didi Gregorius (wrist) sprained his left wrist in Saturday's Grapefruit League contest and is heading for precautionary X-rays.

The Yankees don't believe that the injury is serious, but are sending him for X-Ray to be sure. If he isn't available for the start of the regular season, the Yankees could slide Stephen Drew over to shortstop.
Mar 28 - 3:08 PM

Didi Gregorius went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts on Tuesday and is 1-for-12 this spring.

The Yankees aren't counting on Gregorius being an above average offensive shortstop, but they do have to hope he's not too much of a liability at the bottom of the lineup. It'll only make things harder on him that the Yankees seem to be planning to bat four lefties in a row (Stephen Drew 8th, Gregorius 9th, Jacoby Ellsbury 1st and Brett Gardner 2nd). Teams will be rushing to throw lefty relievers against that group, and Gregorius has hit .184/.257/.233 with no homers in 163 major league at-bats versus southpaws.
Mar 10 - 4:00 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said on WFAN on Friday that Didi Gregorius will platoon with Brendan Ryan at shortstop to begin 2015 due to his struggles against left-handed pitching.

Gregorius has a measly .490 OPS over 180 plate appearances against southpaws in the big leagues, so a platoon makes sense on paper, but Ryan isn't the best partner with an equally-modest .556 OPS off lefties from 2012-2014. We're guessing Gregorius will get the full job outright before long.
