Gregorius is not in the lineup Sunday against the Mariners, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. The Yankees seem intent on easing their shortstop back into action after he missed a couple weeks due to a heel injury. As such, Gregorius will get another day off to rest, allowing Adeiny Hechavarria to make another start at shortstop to replace him.
