Yankees manager Joe Girardi expects Didi Gregorius (shoulder) to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Gregorius is ready to roll after completing a five-game rehab assignment with High-A Tampa. It took him a little over a month to recover from a strained shoulder. With Gregorius taking over as the everyday shortstop, Ronald Torreyes will head back to the bench.

Didi Gregorius (shoulder) is on track to return against the Orioles this weekend.

Gregorius could be back as soon as Friday. The 27-year-old has looked sharp during his minor league rehab assignment, hitting .429 with a homer in four games for High-A Tampa. Gregorius has spent the past month recovering from a shoulder strain he suffered at the World Baseball Classic. Ronald Torreyes has been kept his seat warm at shortstop over the first few weeks.
Apr 26 - 5:36 PM

Didi Gregorius (shoulder) has gone 2-for-6 at the plate while playing six innings in each game in his first two rehab contests with High-A Tampa.

Working his way back from a right shoulder strain, Gregorius is expected to be activated from the disabled list in early May assuming all goes well. Ronald Torreyes has been filling in at shortstop for the Yankees.
Apr 23 - 9:41 AM

Didi Gregorius (shoulder) has begun a throwing program.

Apr 5 - 8:35 AM

Yankees placed SS Didi Gregorius on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to March 30, with a right shoulder strain.

Gregorius is currently shut down from baseball activities and is expected to miss all of April after injuring his right shoulder this spring. Ronald Torreyes will be the primary shortstop in his absence.
Apr 2 - 10:13 AM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Yankees were "a bit dismayed" at how Didi Gregorius (shoulder) was used in the World Baseball Classic.

Gregorius strained his right shoulder Saturday while playing in an exhibition game for Team Netherlands. Per Heyman, the Yankees are upset that Gregorius got hurt playing second base, a position he hasn't played since 2014. "It is what it is," said manager Joe Girardi. "He’s hurt. There’s nothing you can do about it." Ronald Torreyes and Tyler Wade are the most likely candidates to fill in at shortstop during his absence.
Mar 23 - 9:43 PM

Didi Gregorius has been shut down for two weeks due to a right shoulder strain.

It could have been worse, but obviously Gregorius can be ruled out for Opening Day and Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the shortstop could miss all of April. Tyler Wade or possibly Ronald Torreyes will probably be the primary shortstop for the Yankees to begin the regular season. The club could also consider using Starlin Castro there.
Mar 21 - 3:58 PM

Didi Gregorius has left Team Netherlands because of a right shoulder injury.

Gregorius is flying back to Yankees camp in Tampa for more tests Monday after undergoing a preliminary MRI on Sunday. The initial diagnosis is a hematoma of the subcapsular muscle. There should be more clarity on the situation by Tuesday. Gregorius obviously won't be suiting up for Team Netherlands against Team Puerto Rico in the WBC semifinals on Monday night.
Mar 20 - 11:26 AM

Didi Gregorius finished 2-for-3 with five RBI and three runs scored as Team Netherlands routed Team Israel 12-2 on Monday in the World Baseball Classic.

Gregorius contributed an RBI double to the Netherlands' four-run third inning, a three-run homer to the Netherlands' four-run fourth inning, and a sacrifice fly to the Netherlands' two-run eighth inning. The Yankees shortstop is batting .500 with a 1.500 OPS so far in the WBC.
Mar 13 - 9:29 AM

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with three doubles, three RBI, and two runs scored in Team Netherlands' victory over Chinese Taipei.

It was a back-and-forth affair. Gregorius, who was serving as the DH, put the Netherlands ahead with a two-run double in the fourth inning before later tying the game with another double in the bottom of the eighth. The Netherlands would eventually win in walk-off fashion in the ninth to advance to the second round of the tournament.
Mar 8 - 8:31 AM

Didi Gregorius is expected to play for the Netherlands in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

Yet another quality option for Netherlands' infield, joining Xander Bogaerts, Andrelton Simmons, Jonathan Schoop, and Jurickson Profar. Gregorius is coming off a breakout season where he batted .276/.304/.447 with 20 home runs and 70 RBI over 153 games.
Jan 24 - 3:31 PM

Yankees and SS Didi Gregorius avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.1 million contract.

Gregorius had a breakout season at the plate for the Yanks in 2016, hitting .276/.304/.447 with 20 home runs. He'll be eligible for arbitration for a final time next winter.
Jan 13 - 11:51 AM

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.
Sun, Sep 25, 2016 04:32:00 PM

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.
