Gregorius is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta. Gregorius will be on the bench for the second time this series, ceding shortstop duties to Ronald Torreyes. Since returning from an elbow injury earlier this month, Gregorius is slashing an ugly .177/.261/.452 across 17 games.
Gregorius will sit Friday against Atlanta. Gregorius hits the bench against lefty Max Fried, though there's little reason to fear him slipping into a platoon role, as he'd started against the two previous southpaws the Phillies faced. Ronald Torreyes will be the shortstop in his absence.
Gregorius went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Marlins. Gregorius has displayed increased power since he returned from an elbow injury at the start of July, as his home run in the fifth inning Sunday was his fourth since the month began. During that time, the 31-year-old has hit .200 with four homers, nine runs, five RBI and two stolen bases across 13 games.
Gregorius is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox. Gregorius will hit the bench against lefty Martin Perez. He's now sat against both of the southpaws the Phillies have faced since he returned from an elbow injury at the start of the month. Ronald Torreyes starts at shortstop in his absence.
Gregorius went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run, a double and a stolen base in Thursday's 8-0 win over the Cubs. The shortstop wrapped up Philadelphia's scoring with his homer in the seventh inning. He also worked a double-steal in the second inning that saw J.T. Realmuto steal home. Five of Gregorius' six hits in 24 July at-bats have gone for extra bases (three homers, two doubles). He's slashing .232/.277/.423 with seven long balls, 26 RBI, 14 runs scored and a pair of steals through 155 plate appearances.
