It’s time to acknowledge Didi Gregorius as an elite MLB shortstop

It’s time to acknowledge Didi Gregorius as an elite MLB shortstop

Gregorius has been the Yankees’ early season MVP, and it’s beyond time to consider him among the best shortstops in the game. Didi Gregorius smacked a pair of home runs against the Marlins on Monday night, depositing the two home run balls beyond the right field wall. It’s a location that has become the shortstop’s own personal playground at Yankee Stadium. The multi-home run game was Gregorius’ second of the season. We’re just over halfway through April. Remarkably, the home runs are just part of Gregorius’ red-hot start to the season. Sure, his power has been out of this...

He’s been improving year and it’s been amazing to watch. After a breakout year last year when he finally started getting some recognition, Gregorius is even better this year. He’s displaying the power and hit ability that he did last year, but he’s now added pitch recognition and patience to his skill set. He’s walking. A lot. He’s among the AL leaders in...

Yankees 12, Marlins 1: Aaron Judge, Didi Gregorius shine in rout of Miami

Aaron Judge set another record, while Luis Severino dominated in the series opener. Aaron Judge belted his 60th career home run, setting a new mark for most within the first 200 big league games to start a career. The Yankees scored early and often, while Luis Severino dominated the young Marlins’ lineup as. New York absolutely pummeled Miami 12 — 1 in the Bronx. Caleb Smith got the start for the Marlins against his former team. The soft-tossing southpaw entered the game having issued 10 walks in just 13.1 innings this year. He failed to improve upon that stat against the patient...

Didi Gregorius is open to a long-term extension, but things are complicated now

Twelve games into the 2018 season, Didi Gregorius has not only been the best player on the Yankees, he’s been one of the best players in all of baseball. Sir Didi comes into today hitting .359/.471/.795 (239 wRC+) with three home runs. His +1.1 fWAR is tied with Matt Chapman for the highest in baseball.

What’s driving Didi Gregorius’ success with the Yankees?

What’s driving Didi Gregorius’ success with the Yankees?

Things have not looked great for the Yankees so far, aside from Sir Didi of course. The (very) early stages of the Yankees’ season could be going better, to say the least. Sluggers aren’t hitting, injuries are piling up and there have already been a number of bad losses. Given last year’s finish and the offseason splash made by Brian Cashman, this slow start has been the most unpleasant of surprises. Of course, Didi Gregorius’ red-hot start does not fall into this category. Gregorius has been on a tear since Opening Day, as he continues to blossom into one of the best shortstops in...

The suddenly more disciplined Didi Gregorius

Ten games into the 2018 season, perhaps the one number that stands out the most to me is nine. That’s how many walks Didi Gregorius has drawn so far this season. One of those nine was intentional, but eight unintentional walks in ten games? For Didi? It seems impossible. His eighth unintentional walk came in […] The post The suddenly more disciplined Didi Gregorius appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

The Yankees should offer Didi Gregorius a contract extension

The Yankees should offer Didi Gregorius a contract extension

Didi Gregorius is open to a contract extension, and the Yankees should lock him in to a new deal now. When Brian Cashman orchestrated a three-team trade that sent Shane Greene to the Tigers and Didi Gregorius to the Yankees, he couldn’t have known how good the shortstop would turn out to be. After all, Gregorius hit just .241/.314/.368 during two partial seasons with the Diamondbacks before coming to New York. Flash forward three years, and he has become one of the best shortstops in the league. It is time for the Yankees to start working on a contract extension with him before he becomes...

Didi Gregorius made Yankees history last week

New York’s shortstop broke a number of records during the Bombers’ thrilling home opener. Yankee fans, forced by snow and rain to wait longer than expected for the team’s home opener, got amply rewarded for their patience. Didi Gregorius produced an Opening Day for the ages. The Yankees’ shortstop went 4-for-4 with a walk in five plate appearances. He singled, doubled, and belted a pair of three-run homers to lift the Yankees to an 11-4 victory over the visiting Tampa Bay Rays. Dubbed “the infield captain” by manager Aaron Boone, Gregorius made history by driving in eight runs....

Ask Pinstripe Alley: Yankees mailbag questions request

Send us your questions for the first mailbag of the 2018 season! The 2018 season is a little more than a week old, and it’s already been a roller coaster for the Yankees. Aaron Boone’s squad has a 5 - 4 record, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. Injuries demolished the team’s depth, while the elite bullpen has not been as advertised. In fact, many of the team’s losses fall on the shoulders of relief pitchers. At the same time, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton already put on power displays, and Didi Gregorius might be the best shortstop in baseball. It’s been an eventful...
