Gregorius (elbow) threw 50 times from 90 feet Friday, Jack Curry of YES Network reports. Gregorius reported no issues with his elbow after being reevaluated Saturday and is on track to extend his throwing distance to 120 feet next week. The Yankees have yet to establish a target date for Gregorius' return, but it's likely the shortstop will be ticketed for the 60-day injured list.
Gregorius (elbow) has been cleared to take non-contact full swings with a regular bat and hopes to begin tee work at the end of March, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Gregorius underwent Tommy John surgery in the middle of October with the intention of returning before the All-Star break. The shortstop began his throwing program in the beginning of February, but needed a sign off from the doctor to begin swinging. Troy Tulowitzki is expected to be the Yankees' primary shortstop until Gregorius is ready.
Gregorius (elbow) hopes to be cleared for full hitting in early March, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. The shortstop was cleared to begin a throwing program just last week and has already taken one-handed swings in an attempt to stay in shape while his elbow isn't ready for two-handed swinging. However, it seems like Gregorius is hopeful to reach the point of full swings relatively soon. He will be assessed by a doctor in early March, and if all goes as planned, he'll be able to begin a hitting program. As things stand, he appears to still be on track to return before the All-Star break, but a firmer date will come into focus as he progresses further in his rehab program.
Gregorius (elbow) began a throwing program Monday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Everything apparently went off without a hitch as Gregorius said he threw 25 times from 60 feet before moving on to some light throws from shortstop. This is an encouraging development for the soon-to-be 29-year-old, as prior to Monday he had been limited to hitting in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. While Gregorius still appears to be tracking a return prior to the All-Star break, a more concrete return date likely won't come into focus until he progresses further in his rehab. In the meantime, Troy Tulowitzki and Gleyber Torres are expected to fill in at shortstop until Gregorius returns.
Gregorius (elbow) began hitting in a batting cage one-handed Thursday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The shortstop is doing his best to stay in baseball shape this offseason, though it appears he's still not able to do much with his surgically repaired elbow. That said, Gregorius still appears to be on track for a return before the All-Star break, with a firmer date likely coming into focus as he ramps up his activity further. In the interim, Troy Tulowitzki and Gleyber Torres figure to handle primary shortstop duties to fill the void.
