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
(3/29/2014) Diamondbacks shortstop Chris Owings will break camp with the big-league team, beating out fellow shortstop Didi Gregorius. Gregorius will start the year in the minors, the team announced.

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

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.


Diamondbacks expect competition at shortstop in 2014


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2013) Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers expects Chris Owings and Didi Gregorius to compete for the starting shortstop job in 2014, MLB.com reports.

"Let them fight it out. We like both of them a lot," Towers said. "I love the competition in Spring Training. ... Just because Didi was there all year, I don't want him to think he's the everyday shortstop."

Gregorius hit .252/.332/.373 with seven home runs and 28 RBI in 357 at-bats with the Diamondbacks in 2013, whiel Owings hit .291/.361/.382 with no home runs and five RBI in 55 at-bats in the majors.


Didi Gregorius sitting Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius is not in the team's starting lineup against the Blue Jays Wednesday.

Gregorius will be replaced by Willie Bloomquist at short. He's hitting .261/.333/.374 in 326 at-bats. 


Diamondbacks have plethora of shortstop options


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) The return of Willie Bloomquist after missing nearly two months with a broken bone in his hand has created a logjam at shortstop for Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson. Bloomquist's return means Gibson has a three-man rotation at shortstop, which also includes Didi Gregorius and Cliff Pennington.

"I’ll rotate the guys somewhat," Gibson said, per The Arizona Republic. "We didn’t score any runs (Friday) night, and I think Willie is probably the best shortstop we have, the most offensive. He puts the bat on the ball and allows us to do stuff."

The situation could even become more crowded if the Diamondbacks choose to bring up prospect Chris Owings, who was named MVP of the Pacific Coast League (Triple-A).

"He’s earned it, and he’s got a pretty good future ahead of him," Gibson said of Owings. "He’s going to fit in there somewhere, sometime, some way, somehow."


Didi Gregorius out Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius is not in the team's starting lineup Tuesday against the Reds.

Gregorius will be replaced by Cliff Pennington, who will hit eighth against lefty Tony Cingrani. Gregorius is hitting .265/.335/.379 in 298 at-bats. 


Didi Gregorius trying to find 'lost swing'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2013) Diamondbacks rookie shortstop Didi Gregorius is having a tough time hitting his way out of a prolonged slump. Gregorius was hitless in three at-bats Sunday against the Red Sox, striking out twice, which followed up a four-strikeout performance Friday at Boston.

Since June 8, Gregorius is batting .202 in his last 37 games, which has dropped his season average from .322 to .270.

Manager Kirk Gibson said Gregorius has worked on becoming a better hitter to all fields in 2013.

"The league made some adjustments on that," Gibson said, per The Arizona Republic. "Now, he’s kind of in between. You know, ‘What am I? Who am I? Am I a pull hitter? Can I hit the ball the other way?’

"Obviously, you want to be able to do both. You want to be able to read pitches and hit the ball all over the field. He’s just kind of lost his swing a little bit. I think he’s got a lot on his mind. He’s kind of getting initiated a little bit right now."


Didi Gregorius out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2013) Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius was out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves. After starting the season strong in April and May, he has hit just .241/.313/.276 with no home runs and no stolen bases in 87 at-bats in June.
