Yankees News: No Timetable on Didi Gregorius’ Return


Well, earlier today New York Yankees skipper Joe Girardi told reporters that there is no timetable on the return of Didi Gregorius (wrist). According to David Lennon, a baseball columnist for Newsday.com, the Yankees medical staff will need to see the swelling in Gregorius’ wrist go down before they’ll be able to give a legitimate estimate on his return to baseball.

The newly acquired shortstop suffered the sprained wrist while attempting to snag Everth Cabrera‘s single to left field during Saturday’s exhibition loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

Any prolonged injury will be a huge blow early on in the season for the bombers, as Didi Gregorius has been envisioned as the teams Opening Day shortstop since being acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks in December in a three team trade that sent the home-grown Shane Greene over to Detroit. Gregorius was batting .300 (12-for-40) with four doubles, two triples and six RBIs in 17 games played this spring.
