Yankees' Didi Gregorius drives in three runs with four-hit night


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius had a big night at the plate in Tuesday's 21-5 torching of the Rangers. Gregorius went 4 for 5 with a triple, three RBI and two runs scored. He drove in all three runs with a bases-clearing triple as part of an 11-run onslaught in the second inning. 

This was the first four-hit game in Gregorius' career. The impressive performance lifted his season average up to .257, and he has rather quietly been hitting very well lately. Over his last 10 games, Gregorius is batting .412 with a home run and nine RBI.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Yankees' Girardi taking day-by-day approach with middle infield


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi isn't ready to commit to using a platoon situation at shortstop and second base, according to The Journal News.

With Brendan Ryan off the disabled list, the Yankees could use Ryan at shortstop and Jose Pirela at second base when a left-hander is on the mound, and start Didi Gregorius at shortstop and Stephen Drew at second base against righties.

“We’ll see,” Girardi said prior to Wednesday's game against the Nationals. “We’ll go day by day. That’s kind of how, to me, you have to approach the game. You have to see what’s going on, when guys necessarily need a day off. We’ll just go day by day.”


Yankees SS Didi Gregorius given day off on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/2/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's clash with the Mariners. Gregorius had started each of the last 12 games for the Yankkes, hitting .244 (10 for 41) with a pair of home runs over that stretch.

Stephen Drew will slide over to handle shortstop while Jose Pirela gets the start at second base.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Yankees infielder Didi Gregorius and outfielder Garrett Jones hit their first home runs of the 2015 season in Friday night's 10-9 loss to the Rangers. 

Gregorius hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning. He's now hitting .217/.278/.278. Jones went yard with a three-run shot in the eighth inning that trimmed Texas' lead to two runs at the time. 

Jones is now slashing .171/.190/.317. 


Yankees SS Didi Gregorius looking to improve offense in 2015


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius has had a rough go of it in 2015, his first season in New York. Through 35 games, Gregorius is batting just .214 with just four doubles on the year. He has been getting the bulk of the playing time at shortstop, sharing time with Stephen Drew. But Gregorius just hasn't been able to figure things out at the plate.

"I don't feel it, but who knows?" Gregorius said, according the New York Post. "You never know. Maybe I start hitting all of a sudden. I just keep working hard in the cage. That's how it all starts."

And his defense hasn't exactly lived up either. He four errors so far this year, after committing just six all of last year. 

“I didn’t come here to fail. “You always want to succeed.”


Yankees' Stephen Drew starts at third base on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/13/2015) Stephen Drew is in the starting lineup at third base and batting seventh for the Yankees on Wednesday against the Rays. This will be Drew's first appearance at third base in his career. This comes on the heels of manager Joe Girardi claiming that Drew would be the primary backup option to Chase Headley at the hot corner.

Indeed, Headley is out of the lineup on Wednesday while Drew mans third base. Drew has struggled offensively this year, owning a dismal .184/.281/.367 batting line.

Jose Pirela is starting at second base, while Didi Gregorius is at shortstop


Didi Gregorius drives in two for Yankees


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius drove in two runs and scored one in a 2-for-3 performance on Sunday. 

"I've just been working in the cage, that's where everything starts," Gregorius said to NJ.com. "Working even harder than before...I'm just going day by day and even if I hit the ball hard, take the positive out of it."

Gregorius hit his third double of the year, moved to seven RBI and is now hitting .225. 


Yankees' Pirela could eat into playing time of Drew, Gregorius


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/6/2015) Yankees infielder Jose Pirela is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday, and that could be bad news for Stephen Drew and Didi Gregorius, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Pirela has been out since he suffered a concussion during spring training.

And, despite the fact that Pirela has just 24 big-league at-bats on his ledger (all coming at the end of the 2014 season), Heyman believes he could cut into the playing time of Drew and/or Gregorius, each of whom have gotten off to slow starts this year. 

Drew is hitting just .167 on the year and Gregorius has committed four errors at shortstop. 

Meanwhile, Pirela was hitting .579 (11 for 19) at Triple-A this season as part of his rehab. He had a home run and four doubles as well and could see time at both middle-infield positions for the Yankees.


Yankees Girardi: Didi Gregorious' plate patience is fine


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius was retired on just three pitches in his final two at-bats combined in Wednesday's 3-2, 13-inning loss to the Rays, but manager Joe Girardi isn't concerned with the shortstop's plate patience, NJ.com reports.

"No," Girardi said. "He hit a ball hard to center, he hit a ball to second. You're looking for a pitch to hit. You're looking just for a base hit."

Gregorius went 0 for 5 with two strikeouts in the loss. He has hit just .206/.261/.238 with four RBI and two stolen bases in 63 at-bats.


A-Rod offers instructions, advice to new Yankees SS Didi Gregorius


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/28/2015) Shortstop Didi Gregorius has some huge shoes to fill, replacing Derek Jeter, so the first-year Yankee spent some time Tuesday getting instructions from teammate and former All-Star shortstop Alex Rodriguez, per LoHud.com.

"It’s just a veteran player looking to lend a helping hand in situations," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “Didi is still a young player ... He’s not a seasoned veteran out there. Alex’s experience playing short and his experience playing here in New York can help Didi.”

Rodriguez played shortstop 10 of his 21 years in the major leagues, being named an MVP and an All-Star seven times while manning that position.

“He’s making a lot of transitions,” Rodriguez said of Gregorius. “New York is one. The Yankees, things are different here for sure."

Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury returns to the lineup Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury will return to the starting lineup Monday against the Rays, the team announced. Ellsbury was pulled in Saturday's game with hip tightness and missed Sunday's game with the injury. Ellsbury is hitting .282 with a home run in 71 at-bats. 

Alex Rodriguez will also slide over to third base from designated hitter and move Chase Headley to the bench. Didi Gregorius also returns to the lineup at shortstop with Stephen Drew shifting to second base and Gregorio Petit moving to the bench.

The Yankees are currently the favorites (-140) against Tampa Bay.


Didi Gregorius out of Yankees lineup on Sunday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is not in the team's lineup for Sunday night's game. 

Stephen Drew will move over from second to start at shortstop for the fourth time this year. Gregorio Petit plays second, batting ninth. 


Yankees' Carlos Beltran, Didi Gregorious not in lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran and shortstop Didi Gregorius are not in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with lefty starter Kyle Lobstein and the Tigers.

Beltran missed two games due to illness before returning to the lineup Monday. He had been batting third but was slotted fifth in his return Monday. Designated hitter Alex Rodriguez will make his fourth straight start in the No. 3 spot in the lineup Tuesday.

Gregorius has started 11 of the team's 13 games this year at shortstop. Backup infielder Gregorio Petit will play shortstop and bat ninth.

The Yankees are underdogs (+105) in Detroit Tuesday.


Yankees' Gregorius: 'I'm trying to get better every day I go out there'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius isn't hiding from the fact he is off to a slow start, batting .172 (5 for 29) through nine games.

“It’s started slow, I’m not going to lie,” Gregorius said, per The Journal News. “Everybody can see that. But it’s a couple of games in, hopefully I can pick it up and get better when I go out there. … The Yankees gave me the opportunity to be here, and for me it’s just amazing to follow in (Derek Jeter’s) footsteps. I’m trying to get better every day I go out there, making a lot of adjustments and everything and be the best I can be whenever I go out there.”

Manager Joe Girardi is also stressing patience as Gregorius replaces a Yankees legend.

“Let’s not forget that (Gregorius) is 25,” Girardi said. “There’s an adjustment period for a lot of people when they come to New York. It’s not the easiest position to handle either. He’s, in a sense, the captain of an infield and in charge. He has a lot of responsibilities. It’s been a week, too, and that’s why I don’t make too much of it.”


Tigers were shocked Yanks willing to deal Greene to acquire shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Tigers personnel were shocked over the winter when they were able to acquire starting pitcher Shane Greene from the Yankees, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

One source told Heyman it was "painful" for the Yankees to trade Greene, but it appears the team was desperate for a shortstop, which is why they moved Greene in order to get Didi Gregorius in a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks.

Gregorius is off to a rough start with the Yankees, going 5 for 29 (.172) with one error in nine games. Greene is off to a great start with Detroit, going 2-0 and allowing one unearned run in 16 innings.


Yankees to rest SS Didi Gregorius Friday vs. Red Sox


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/9/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is expected to take a scheduled day of rest Friday against the Red Sox, manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com. The Yankees will face a left-handed starter for the second straight night, in Boston's Wade Miley, and it may open the door for Gregorio Petit to start. 

Yankees' Didi Gregorius batting eighth vs. Blue Jays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius was in the starting lineup and batted eighth Wednesday night against Toronto, per MLB.com. Gregorius was hit on the elbow by a pitch on Opening Day.

Gregorius has been held without a hit in his first two at-bats this season. He never faced knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, who started for Toronto on Wednesday.

New York is favored (-125) at home against Toronto, per VegasInsider.com.


Yankees waiting to see how Didi Gregorius feels on Wednesday


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) After Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius was nailed by a pitch on Opening Day, the team will wait to decide his status for Wednesday's game, reports the New York Post.

“Hopefully he is OK, hopefully the day off helps,’’ Girardi said about Tuesday being dark on the Yankees schedule after a sickly 6-1 loss Monday. “He said he was OK. I think you have to wait and see how he feels on Wednesday. Sometimes there can be swelling after the game."

Gregorius told Girardi it was not necessary to take him out of the game after being hit.

“He did not say we needed to take him out, which is a good sign, but you never know in those situations,’’ Girardi said of Gregorius.


Didi Gregorius endures rough opener for Yankees


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius didn't make anyone forget Derek Jeter in the 6-1 Opening Day loss to the Blue Jays. 

Gregorius made the last out of the eighth inning on an ill-advised attempt to steal third base. 

"You know, I'm just going to chalk it up as someone trying to do too much, and in a game like this you're looking for a three-run homer there," manager Joe Girardi said, per MLB.com. "Your run doesn't mean a whole lot. ... It's probably a real good learning experience that it happened in Game One here, and hopefully it never happens again."

"It was a bad mistake by me, I'll admit it," Gregorius said. "I'll admit that it was my mistake, and it won't happen again."

Gregorius also got hit on the elbow by a pitch. He stayed in the game, but it's at least a mild concern. 

"I think you have to wait to see how he feels on Wednesday, because sometimes there can be swelling after the game and you have to deal with it," Girardi said. "He did not say that we needed to take him out, which was a good sign, but you never know in those situations."
