Didi Gregorius


Unfortunately, manager Joe Girardi said Gregorius has hematoma of the subcapsular muscle and will undergo more tests in Tampa tomorrow.

With opening day just two weeks away, Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius has left the World Baseball Classic in Los Angeles to return to New York's spring camp in Tampa, where he'll undergo more testing on an injured right (throwing) shoulder, MLB.com reported.

"It's obviously not what you want to hear, but hopefully it's something short", Girardi said.

Gregorius batted.348 (8-for-23) with four doubles, a home run and eight RBIs in six games to help the Netherlands advance to the WBC semifinals.

Gregorius began to complain of shoulder pain during a WBC exhibition Saturday. That followed a strong 2016 season with the Yankees, one in which he batted.276 with 20 home runs, 70 RBI and 68 runs scored in 153 games played.

"The Yankees could go with Ronald Torreyes or Ruben Tejada, if Gregorius' injury is not serious".

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told ESPN that top prospect Gleyber Torres would not be called on to replace Gregorius. Torres is scheduled to start the season at Class AA Trenton.
