Yankees' Didi Gregorius: Requires Tommy John surgery
Gregorius suffered a right elbow injury during the ALDS against the Red Sox and an MRI on Thursday revealed that he will require Tommy John surgery. Manager Aaron Boone said he anticipates Gregorius returning "at some point during [next] season," though he added it's "realistic" that the shortstop will be available for the "bulk" of the 2019 campaign, Marc Carig of The Athletic reports.
It appears as though Gregorius felt the injury occur during Game 1 or 2 of the ALDS in Boston while making a throw, and played through the injury the rest of the series. Thursday's MRI showed a tear in the UCL and will warrant Tommy John surgery, but fortunately the timetable for rehab is generally a great deal shorter for position players than it is for pitchers. That will make it possible for the shortstop to return to the field next year, though Boone added that a concrete timetable is unknown at this point. Gregorius is expected to undergo the surgery next week.
