New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius (elbow) has been cleared to take dry non-contact swings with his regular bat. He thinks that after a week or two he could resume hitting balls off a tee and in soft toss. Gregorius underwent Tommy John surgery and is expected to miss around half of the season. For that reason it's hard to justify stashing him in mixed leagues. Troy Tulowitzki is expected to hold down the fort at shortstop until Gregorius is healthy enough to return.
New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius (elbow) will have a doctor's assessment in the beginning of March, at which point he could be cleared to begin a hitting program shortly thereafter. He has already been cleared to throw. Gregorius is likely to miss around half the season after having Tommy John surgery, which means you should avoid drafting him in mixed leagues in 2019. He was one of the better fantasy shortstops when healthy in 2018, though, so he's worth stashing in AL-only leagues. Some combination of Troy Tulowitzki and Gleyber Torres should man the 6 until Gregorius is fully healthy.
New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius (elbow) resumed throwing on Monday for the first time since having Tommy John surgery on his right elbow on Oct. 17. He said he did 25 tosses from 60 feet pain-free. He was also spotted making light throws to first base after fielding grounders at shortstop. Depending on how fast he progresses, Gregorius could be back as soon as late May or not until July, so it's hard to justify drafting him in shallow mixed leagues. Some combination of Troy Tulowitzki and Gleyber Torres are expected to fill in at the 6 until Gregorius is ready to return.
