Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is slated to miss the next 6-8 weeks with a shoulder injury sustained during his play for the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic, manager Joe Girardi told reporters. Didi Gregorius injured his shoulder and left the game, and it's nearly certainly going to impact his regular-season schedule.
The loss of Gregorius creates a big hole in the Yankees' lineup and on the field, as the skilled shortstop Gregorius broke out offensively last season. Brian Cashman guesses he could be out six weeks. If the Yankees decide to stick with internal options, Tyler Wade and Ronald Torreyes are probably the front-runners. Gregorius left the WBC, where he was competing with the team from the Netherlands, and returned to the Yankees' spring training facility in Tampa, Florida, to undergo further tests Tuesday.
