A couple of days ago Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius was feared lost for the season after he tore cartilage in his right wrist while sliding. Now, if YES Network’s Michael Kay’s sources are accurate, he may actually be back in the fold pretty soon.
Kay tweeted a few moments ago that Gregorius got good news from his doctors and was cleared to resume baseball activities. It’s not clear when he’ll be back in game action, but Kay said that the doctors have said that Gregorius should be fine to play throughout the playoffs, “no matter how long the playoffs go.”
Here he is reporting it on his radio show:
Gregorius is hitting .268/.336/.498 with 27 homers and 86 RBI on the season. The Yankees would’ve been in a tight spot not having him available in the playoffs and now, it seems, they will not have to worry.
