Could Didi Gregorius’ injury be Rob Refsnyder’s opportunity?

Didi Gregorius‘ injury is unfortunate in every way, even if he may only miss a month of the season. The Yankees don’t have a ready-made replacement and, much more importantly, a key cog of their future has to deal with an injury that can set him back after he made strides last season and hoped […] The post Could Didi Gregorius’ injury be Rob Refsnyder’s opportunity? appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Starlin Castro is a fine in-house replacement at shortstop

Starlin Castro is a fine in-house replacement at shortstop

Much has been made of Castro’s subpar defense at shortstop. Is that actually the case, though? News broke on Tuesday afternoon that Didi Gregorius would miss approximately six weeks with a shoulder strain. With that came a flurry of speculation as to who would take over at shortstop when the Yankees break from camp in less than two weeks. Would it be utility infielder Ronald Torreyes? Or maybe former Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada? Perhaps the team will continue the youth movement and opt for a prospect like Tyler Wade. A number of options popped up around the internet. A less popular...
What can the Yankees expect from Tyler Wade?

What can the Yankees expect from Tyler Wade?

If Wade does grab a starting spot, what kind of production could we anticipate I am devastated by the loss of Didi Gregorius, like I’m sure many Yankees fans out there are as well. Gregorius suffered a shoulder injury during the World Baseball Classic as a member of the Netherlands national team. While this certainly shouldn’t be an indictment of the WBC itself, it’s just a reality we’re going to have to live with. The question, of course, is how long Gregorius is going to be out of action, to which I answer: who the heck knows. At first the Yankees said he would cease baseball...

Yankees trade rumors: New York passes on Zack Cozart, Jose Iglesias

Yankees trade rumors: New York passes on Zack Cozart, Jose Iglesias

The search for Didi’s short-term replacement continues. The Yankees have once again found themselves in need of a strong infielder, especially after everyday shortstop Didi Gregorius sustained a shoulder injury in an exhibition game while playing for The Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic. Gregorius will start the season on the DL and miss all of April, making this a long term problem that New York has to fix. Cue two decently qualified shortstops to fill that need: Zack Cozart of the Reds and Jose Iglesias of the Tigers. However, the Yankees declined the advances of both clubs...

How Yankees' lineup should look without Didi Gregorius

The New York Yankees have a problem without shortstop Didi Gregorius. They don't just lose an above-average glove, but a bat that's found pop and a strong combatant against lefty pitching. General manager Brian Cashman and manager Joe Girardi are going to have to figure out a batting order without him before the end of Major League Baseball spring training.

Piecoro: Yanks believed to have some interest in Nick Ahmed

According to Nick Piecoro, the Yankees are believed to have some level of interest in Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed. Arizona has plenty of middle infielders (Ketel Marte, Chris Owings, Brandon Drury, Daniel Descalso) and they reportedly started gauging interest in Ahmed a few days ago. The Yankees will be without Didi Gregorius for a few […] The post Piecoro: Yanks believed to have some interest in Nick Ahmed appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

New York Yankees: Didi Gregorius Out a Month with a Strained Shoulder

After the injury to Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera while playing for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic, the injury to New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius marks the second MLB star to be hurt during the tournament. Recently, I posed the question of whether or not these stars should actually be playing in the […] New York Yankees: Didi Gregorius Out a Month with a Strained Shoulder - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Diamondbacks trade rumors: Nick Ahmed drawing interest from Yankees, Rays, Padres

Diamondbacks trade rumors: Nick Ahmed drawing interest from Yankees, Rays, Padres

With a crowded infield, the Diamondbacks could look to trade shortstop Nick Ahmed. According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, the Yankees, Rays, and Padres have all shown “varying degrees of interest” in Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed. All three clubs make plenty of sense. The Yankees just lost Didi Gregorius for 6-8 weeks due to a strained right shoulder suffered while playing for Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic. In Tampa Bay, starting shortstop Matt Duffy remains without a timetable for return coming off Achilles’ surgery. The Padres currently have an open...

Yankees getting trade offers to fill sudden shortstop hole

CLEARWATER, Fla. — Taking the approach that the answer is always no until you ask the question, the Reds and Tigers contacted the Yankees to see if they had an interest in acquiring a shortstop after Didi Gregorius went down with a shoulder injury. The Reds gauged the Yankees’ interest in Zack Cozart and the Tigers dangled...

In the wake of that injury, the Yanks are trying to decide whether to pursue an option outside the organization to pick up the slack until Gregorius returns.

New York Yankees interested in Zack Cozart, per report

Hmm... Way back in December of 2012, the Cincinnati Reds were coming off their best season in over a decade, a 97 win campaign that saw them win their first few postseason games since (roughly) the first Roosevelt Administration. With much of their core returning for another run, they chose to address the single most glaring weakness on the current squad - the leadoff position - by swinging a three-team deal to land Shin-Soo Choo from Cleveland. The deal looped in the Arizona Diamondbacks, and in essence it cost the Reds the services of Drew Stubbs and young shortstop Didi Gregorius. The...

Spring Training Game Thread: In Search of a Shortstop

Thanks to Didi Gregorius‘ shoulder injury, the Yankees suddenly have an opening at shortstop that will last for at least the first few weeks of the regular season. They have a small army of okay-ish fill-in shortstops, and now they have to sort through them and figure out who can best handle the job. Opening […] The post Spring Training Game Thread: In Search of a Shortstop appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
