Yankees' shortstop Didi Gregorius could miss all of April with shoulder injury
The Bronx Bombers need a new shortstop for the first month of the season
Didi Gregorius, who was second in RBI in the World Baseball Classic, left the Netherlands team to undergo tests on his right shoulder Monday prior to the team’s loss to Puerto Rico. On Tuesday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the club believes Gregorius could miss all of April because of the injury.
So the Yankees need a different shortstop to begin the season, they have a few to choose from. Gleyber Torres is one of the top prospects in baseball -- -- and Jorge Mateo is no slouch himself. If the Yankees would rather plug the hole than promote prospects, they have utility player Ronald Torreyes and non-roster invitee Ruben Tejada. Or how about a prospect who is close to MLB-ready in Tyler Wade?
Ben Zobrist comparisons never end well, so good luck, kid.
