Yanks' Gregorius on taking over for Jeter: 'You can't replace a legend'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius spoke with MLB Network Radio on Wednesday about the expectations he faces replacing Yankees legend Derek Jeter, who retired following the 2014 season.

"You can't replace a legend, and it's not replacing," Gregorius said, per MLB.com. "He has been playing for a long time at shortstop and he decided to retire. The spot was open, so I'm not thinking about replacing anything. It's just me just coming in there to try to play my game.

"I'm sure they're going to compare me to Derek Jeter, but you know, nobody can play the same. What Jeter did, nobody can do that. So for me, it's just amazing to get the opportunity to play in the pinstripes."


Yankees hitting coach Pentland: Gregorius has 'got a huge future'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2015) New Yankees hitting coach Jeff Pentland will get to work with a lot of big-name players in his new role, including Carlos Beltran, Mark Teixeira, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Alex Rodriguez. 

However, one player Pentland appears really excited to work with is shortstop Didi Gregorius, who was acquired in an offseason trade with the Diamondbacks. Gregorius is set to replace legendary Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, who retired after 20 seasons in the majors.

"He’s got a huge future and I’m very excited he’s a Yankee," Pentland said of Gregorius, per the New York Daily News. “I’ve always thought there’s a lot in there. We got to get it out and work it. The problem with young players, you have to be more patient.

“But I think this guy has tremendous upside.”

Gregorius, who will turn 25 on Feb. 18, hasn't had a lot of success offensively at the major-league level. He has just a .243 average, .313 on-base percentage, .366 slugging percentage and .680 OPS in 191 career games. He had a .277/.332/.389/.721 slash line in 507 minor-league games.


Yankees' Steinbrenner: 'We're not going to be afraid to spend money'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) Yankees principal owner Hal Steinbrenner indicated Wednesday more offseason moves for New York could be coming, despite general manager Brian Cashman being active this offseason, according to MLB.com. The Yankees have already re-signed third baseman Chase Headley and infielder Stephen Drew, signed reliever Andrew Miller and traded for shortstop Didi Gregorius.

"It's not over until it's over. We still have a full month before spring training," Steinbrenner said. "We're always going to continue to improve. I'm not putting a cap on it. We've certainly filled some holes that we had. We'll keep going for the next few weeks."

Steinbrenner said he wants to get New York back to the postseason while trying to keep the the payroll in the same range, but left the door open to perhaps target one of the top free-agent players still available. Starting pitchers Max Scherzer and James Shields are two of the top names still on the free-agent market.

"[But] having said that, we're still the New York Yankees, all you guys know that," Steinbrenner said. "We know what the fans expect. We know what the town expects. We're not going to be afraid to spend money."


Cashman: Yankees don't think Didi Gregorius is a finished product


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) New Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius hasn't exactly had a lot of success offensively in his young MLB career, batting .243 with a .313 on-base percentage in 191 games. Despite his struggles, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is confident the 24-year-old shortstop is better than his numbers indicate.

"That's our hope. We don't think he's a finished product," Cashman said, per NJ.com.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The Yankees, Diamondbacks and Tigers have finalized a three-way deal that will send shortstop to Didi Gregorius New York, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

Ray, 23, made nine appearances (six starts) in his first season in the majors. He finished 1-4 with a 8.16 ERA, a 1.88 WHIP and 19:11 K:BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings.


Report: Yanks on verge of landing Didi Gregorius in three-team trade


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2014) The Yankees are closing in on a three-team trade with the Tigers and Diamondbacks that would land them Didi Gregorius from Arizona, Sweeny Murti of WFAN in New York reports Friday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks promote Didi Gregorius


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Mets keeping an eye on Didi Gregorius


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) The Mets are keeping an eye on Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius, according to the New York Daily News.

The club has had a tough time finding a shortstop. Ruben Tejada hasn't hit well, and the club appears to have given up on playing Wilmer Flores at the position. Gregorius is the odd man out in Arizona after the team handed to job to Chris Owings. Gregorius is hitting .303 in 178 at-bats at Triple-A.


Didi Gregorius to spend time at second base in Reno


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius lost out on the team's starting job in spring training, and will have to split time at the position in Triple-A as well. Manager Kirk Gibson told MLB.com Wednesday Gregorius will play some second base in Reno, with prospect Nick Ahmed also getting time at short.

"I just think they're both shortstops and they can't both play shortstop every day," Gibson said. "It will do them good to work around the bag from both sides. That's kind of, organizationally, what we've decided."

Gregorius has logged four appearances at second base in his minor-league career, and has yet to appear there in the majors as well. He probably doesn't have to worry too much about Ahmed taking his spot in the organization hierarchy, coming off a .236/.288/.324 season at Double-A. 


Chris Owings beats out Didi Gregorius for starting SS job


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Owings batted .288/.351/.442 with one home run and six RBI over 52 Cactus League at-bats. He went 1 for 4 with a walk in Australia.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) The Pirates have had trade talks with the Diamondbacks about shortstop Didi Gregorius, a source told FOX Sports.

Didi Gregorius claims indifference to trade rumors


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius has dismissed trade rumors that apparently mean that Chris Owings has emerged victorious in the competition for the starting job.

"I didn't know anything about trade rumors," he told MLB.com. "I don't really go look up that stuff. I don't really care. It's not in my hands. It's in the GM's hands. I don't have to worry about that."

Kirk Gibson is not ignoring Gregorius as the team prepares to start the regular season this weekend in Australia. He will start him in one of the two games and Owings in the other.


Report: Tigers seeking to make trade for starting shortstop


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) The Tigers are talking a good game about the likes of Hernan Perez or Stephen Lombardozzi replacing the injured Jose Iglesias as their starting shortstop, but they have been seeking potential trade partners, several scouts have told ESPN.

One possibility that has reported is Didi Gregorius, who seems on the verge of being beaten out for the staring job by Chris Owings and is reportedly on the trade block. But the Diamondbacks could be looking for a starting pitcher and the Tigers already traded Doug Fister in the offseason and might not be willing to let another one go for Gregorius, who would likely be ousted when Iglesias returns.


Arizona to start both shortstops in Australia


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said he intends to give Chris Owings and Didi Gregorius each a start during the team's two-game series against the Dodgers in Australia this weekend.

"I'm probably going to play one of them each day," Gibson said, per MLB.com. "Not sure how I'm going to do it yet."


Report: Arizona shopping Didi Gregorius, not Chris Owings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) The Diamondbacks are open to trading shortstop Didi Gregorius and not fellow shortstop Chris Owings, an industry source told ESPN. The Diamondbacks would like an MLB-ready starting pitcher in return for Gregorius.

Report: Mets continue to monitor shortstop market


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada's shaky play this spring has renewed concerns for management he will not be able to handle the starting shortstop job. Therefore, the Mets are continuing to monitor the shortstop market, according to the New York Daily News.

A team source said Tuesday the Mets continue to scout Mariners infielder Nick Franklin, as they decide whether or not Franklin can play shortstop well enough to justify his offensive potential and giving up a starting pitcher prospect for him.

Also, a source for another team told the Daily News the Mets are also monitoring the Diamondbacks' shortstop competition, and "could jump in" to make a trade for Didi Gregorius or Chris Owings before spring training ends. Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said recently he would consider trading one of his young shortstops, ideally for a top catching prospect, which would likely be Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki.

There is also free-agent shortstop Stephen Drew, but there is no indication from Drew's agent, Scott Boras, that his client would be willing to sign a bargain-type contract.


Diamondbacks could swap shortstop for catcher


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) The Diamondbacks are looking to trade for a backup catcher to Miguel Montero that could possibly supplant him as the starter, according to the Arizona Republic. That means current starting shortstop contenders Chris Owings and Didi Gregorius could be dangled.

"For us, it would have to be the right deal," general manager Kevin Towers said. "If it's right, top-notch catching prospect. Someone we could have right behind Miggy. More of an upper-level guy. Maybe a top, upper-end starter."

Owings might land a better prospect because of his offensive potential.
