Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

The Yankees pounded out 15 hits and 10 runs but still lost the contest. It was by no fault of Gregorius, who hit his fifth homer of the season in the sixth inning. After a swoon in late April, the 26-year-old has clawed his way back to a respectable .271/.306/.391 line through 60 games.
Jun 15 - 1:24 AM

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs as the Yankees shut out the Tigers 4-0 in the opener of their three-game weekend series on Friday.

Gregorius delivered a two-run double off Mike Pelfrey as part of a three-run uprising in the first inning, and the Tigers were never able to counter. With his two-hit attack, the Bombers' shortstop is now hitting .269/.296/.376 with four homers and 21 RBI on the season.
Jun 10 - 10:41 PM

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in the seventh inning of Wednesday's defeat at the hands of the Blue Jays.

Gregorius is 6-foot-2 and looks like he should hit for more power than he does, but an extreme fly-ball pitcher like Marco Estrada was a perfect recipe for a rare homer from the 26-year-old shortstop. He now has four long balls on the year and extended his hitting streak to eight games. The hot stretch has helped him raise his batting average to .275, though his OBP still checks in under .300. He fits well in the bottom third of the Yankees lineup and is a low-tier fantasy shortstop.
May 25 - 10:28 PM

Didi Gregorius hit a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Royals.

The homer was his only hit in four at-bats. The homer was his third of the season, giving him 14 RBI and eight runs scored. The defense-first shortstop is hitting just .221/.241/.356 in 31 games.
May 12 - 10:20 PM

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

The Yankees have really struggled offensively this season, but they managed 13 hits and 10 runs in this one and made a comeback against the Royals' vaunted bullpen. Gregorius was in the middle of the action with a double and a run scored in the second and a bases-clearing double in the third. The shortstop is hitting only .229/.250/.344 on the season.
May 10 - 10:27 PM

Didi Gregorius went 0-for-3 in Thursday's loss to the Orioles, dropping his season average to .215.

Gregorius was hitting .286/.294/.449 on April 22. Since then, he's got just three hits in 33 at-bats. The shortstop is batting .215/.241/.316 with two homers, six RBI and five runs overall.
May 5 - 10:37 PM

Didi Gregorius is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Red Sox.

Gregorius once again will take a seat against a tough opposing left-hander as manager Joe Girardi opts to play the matchups. Ronald Torreyes will start at shortstop for the Yankees and bat eighth on Sunday.
May 1 - 5:32 PM

Didi Gregorius is not in the Yankee lineup for Wednesday's showdown with the Rangers.

Gregorius sits against Rangers southpaw Martin Perez. No injury here, just a match-up play by manager Joe Girardi. Ronald Torreyes fills in for Gregorius and is batting ninth.
Apr 27 - 6:22 PM

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.
