    Description: Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius sprained his left wrist and will have X-rays.
    Insight: We will know more after the results are out. If it's serious, the Yankees have Stephen Drew to slide over to shortstop. Gregorius has a tough assignment this season - replace the legend known as Derek Jeter.
     
    12/5/2014 3:13:00 PM
    Description: The Diamondbacks have traded shortstop Didi Gregorius to the New York Yankees.
    Insight: Gregorius hit .226 last season with six homers, 27 RBI, 35 runs and six steals in 270 at bats. Replacing Yankees all-time great Derek Jeter, Gregorius may have more pressure on him than anyone in baseball.
     
    9/22/2014 1:59:00 PM
    Description: Diamondbacks utility infielder Didi Gregorius is a career .500 hitter (7-for-14) versus Minnesota's Ricky Nolasco.
    Insight: Gregorius has hit safely in his last three games, but is batting just .211 for the year with a .632 OPS. he might be worth a one-day flier.
     
    8/23/2014 10:43:00 PM
    Description: Diamondbacks utility infielder Didi Gregorius hit a three-run home run in the eighth to lift Arizona to victory, 5-2, over San Diego.
    Insight: Gregorius's only hit was the home run. He is hitting .213 with six home runs and 20 RBI this season.
     
    6/3/2014 12:47:00 PM
    Description: Diamondbacks utility infielder Didi Gregorius has been recalled from Triple-A Reno (PCL) to take the place of the injuried Cliff Pennington (sprained tumb).
    Insight: While Chris Owings will still start at shortstop for Arizona, Gregorius could see some time spelling Aaron Hill at second base, as well as Owings. In 57 games with Reno, he hit .310/.389/.477 with three homers, 14 RBI, 14 doubles and three steals. He's only worth adding in the deepest of formats.
     
    3/30/2014 3:06:00 AM
    Description: D'Backs infielder Didi Gregorius is heading to the minors after losing the shortstop battle to Chris Owings.
    Insight: Owings is the better hitter and it's possible the Diamondbacks will seek to trade Gregorious at this point. Gregorius went 0-for-4 during the team's recent trip to Australia.
     
    2/10/2014 9:10:00 PM
    Description: D'Backs infielder Didi Gregorius heads into spring training as the favorite to start at shortstop this season. SOURCE: Diamondbacks.com
    Insight: Chris Owings will also be vying for the shortstop job, though Gregorius has more big league experience (111 games compared to just 20 for Owings). Gregorius wasn't anything spectacular last season (.252, 7 HR, 28 RBI in 103 games) but he's still only 23. He'll be worth monitoring throughout the season.
     
    9/19/2013 10:39:00 AM
    Description: Diamondbacks rookie shortstop Didi Gregorius has faced Ricky Nolasco 11 times this season and picked up seven hits.
    Insight: That's a .636 batting average. The rookie was hitting .322 on June 7 but has gone 37-for-169 (.219) since. He has little power and doesn't have a stolen base this year, but if you are looking for a one-day option Gregorius could be the ticket Thursday.
     
    6/25/2013 4:52:00 PM
    Description: Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius is not in Tuesday's starting lineup. Willie Bloomquist will start at shortstop with Aaron Hill at second base.
    Insight: After a fast start, Gregorius' average has steadily fallen. He's batting .250 in 19 June games after batting .407 in April and .293 in May. With Hill healthy, gregorius is likely to share time with Bloomquist.
     
    5/4/2013 4:08:00 PM
    Description: Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius (concussion) has been activated from the seven-day disabled list.
    Insight: Gregorious was hit in the helmet by a 93-mph fastball, but he cleared all concussion tests Tuesday. He played well in his first seven games, batting .407 with a pair of homers and a 1.226 OPS. He's certainly got more fantasy upside than Cliff Pennington (career .247 batting average, .665 OPS).
     
    4/30/2013 11:07:00 PM
    Description: Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius (concussion) has been cleared for baseball activities. SOURCE: MLB.com
    Insight: Gregorious was hit in the helmet by a 93-mph fastball just four days ago, but he cleared all concussion tests Tuesday. He is eligible to be activated Saturday, but manager Kirk Gibson said he wasn't sure when the team will activate the young shortstop.
     
    4/28/2013 3:05:00 PM
    Description: Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius, who left Friday's game after being hit in the helmet by a pitch from Josh Outman and missed Saturday's contest has been put on the seven-day concussion list.
    Insight: He appears to have avoided serious injury, but these days any head injury is watched carefully. The 23-year-old is off to a quick start, batting .407 with a pair of homers and a 1.226 OPS since being called up seven games ago.
     
    4/28/2013 10:27:00 AM
    Description: Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius, who left Friday's game after being hit in the helmet by a pitch from Josh Outman and missded Saturday's contest, is doubtful for Sunday's game against Colorado.
    Insight: He appears to have avoided serious injury, but might still be a candidate for the seven-day concussion disabled list. The 23-year-old is off to a quick start, batting .407 with a pair of homers and a 1.226 OPS since being called up seven games ago.
     
    4/27/2013 9:30:00 AM
    Description: Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius left Friday's game after being hit in the helmet by a pitch from Josh Outman.
    Insight: He appears to have avoided serious injury, but could certainly miss a few days. The 23-year-old is off to a quick start, batting .407 with a pair of homers and a 1.226 OPS since being called up seven games ago.
     
    4/16/2013 4:18:00 PM
    Description: The Diamondbacks have called up shortstop prospect Didi Gregorius from the minors after placing Aaron Hill (broken hand) on the DL. Gregorius was acquired from Cincinnati in a three-team trade that sent Trevor Bauer to Cleveland and Shin Soo-Choo to the Reds this offseason.
    Insight: He might have started the season with the big league club but he suffered a UCL sprain early in spring training. Gregorius hit .387 (12-for-31) with two homers and a steal in seven rehab games at Triple-A Reno and should start at shortstop, with Cliff Pennington moving to second.
     
    3/6/2013 8:42:00 PM
    Description: Diamondbacks shortstop prospect Didi Gregorius (elbow) is scheduled to make his spring debut Thursday against the Brewers, but he will be limited to DH duty. SOURCE: Diamondbacks.com
    Insight: Gregorius is working his way back from a strained UCL. The defense-first shortstop was acquired from Cincinnati in a three-team trade that sent Trevor Bauer to Cleveland and Shin Soo-Choo to the Reds. He's expected to start the season in Triple-A Reno.
     
    2/12/2013 8:01:00 PM
    Description: Diamondbacks shortstop prospect Didi Gregorius, who was acquired in a three-team deal that saw Trevor Bauer go to Cleveland, has a slight UCL strain in his throwing elbow. SOURCE: Diamondbacks.com
    Insight: The injury has kept Gregorius from swinging a bat or throwing for the past month. Arizona GM Kevin Towers said the shortstop is likely two weeks away from starting a throwing program. As a result, he will miss the start of the regular season. Gregorius projects as more of a defensive shortstop and isn't going to be a huge fantasy factor this season. Cliff Pennington, Willie Bloomquist and John McDonald will vie for the starting shortstop job in spring training.
