Gregorius is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
The Yankees are still easing Gregorius along slowly following his return from Tommy John surgery earlier this month, so he'll sit for the third time in nine contests. With Gregorius taking a seat, Gleyber Torres will shift over to shortstop while Gio Urshela enters the starting nine at third base.
Gregorius is not in the lineup for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Gregorius went 2-for-5 with a double and a run in the afternoon contest. He won't be asked to play two games in one day so soon after returning from Tommy John surgery. Gleyber Torres slides over to shortstop in his absence.
Gregorius is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
Gregorius will get a breather after starting at shortstop the past two days while going 4-for-8 with a home run in his first pair of games since returning from the 60-day injured list. His absence is merely for maintenance purposes, as Gregorius is still getting his conditioning in order following a long layoff due to Tommy John surgery. Gleyber Torres will shift from the keystone over to shortstop while Gregorius rests.
Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs in an 8-4 loss to the Indians on Saturday.
Playing in just his second game of the season, Gregorius hit his first home run of 2019. He batted only .156 in eight rehab games, but going 4-for-8 with a homer since his activation has erased any doubt that Gregorius is ready for action. He should produce plenty in the middle of the Yankees lineup, but owners should expect him to receive regular off days as he eases back into action.
Gregorius (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Friday.
Gregorius will wind up making a fairly quick return from Tommy John surgery last October. He hit just .156 in eight rehab games but was nevertheless deemed ready to go, as he showed no problems handling his defensive duties. He's expected to be the Yankees' primary shortstop going forward but will require frequent off days early on as he eases back into a regular role. Thairo Estrada was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to clear a spot on the 25-man roster, while Troy Tulowitzki (calf) was transferred to the 60-day injured list to clear a spot on the 40-man.
