New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is not in the starting lineup on Sunday. Gregorius made his season debut on Friday after having Tommy John surgery last October and has looked good so far, going 4-for-8 with a homer and two RBI in his first two games back. The Yankees plan to rest him one game in each three-game series to ease him back into action. Gregorius can be streaky but has the potential to be one of the better fantasy shortstops around. Gleyber Torres is at short and is hitting fifth on Sunday against Indians starter Shane Bieber. Torres has been pretty solid in his own right this year and is always a pretty decent DFS selection.
New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius (elbow) is hitting fifth and playing shortstop against Indians starting pitcher Zach Plesac on Friday in his season debut. Gleyber Torres (shoulder) will start on the bench as a result. Gregorius had a long road of recovery from Tommy John surgery, so don't be surprised if he starts off slow. He hit a career-high 27 home runs and had 86 RBI and 10 stolen bases last year for the Yankees, though, so he should be owned in most leagues for the second half of the season. The Yankees will ease him in and have him play in two of three games every season, so keep that in mind.
New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius (elbow) is expected to be activated from the injured list and return to the starting lineup on Friday against the Indians for his season debut. Gregorius is returning from Tommy John surgery last October and should be owned in all leagues as a potential difference-maker at the position. The team is expected to play Gregorius in two of every three-game series to ease him back in, with Gleyber Torres filling in at shortstop in addition to second base. Torres and third baseman Giovanny Urshela will both rest twice a week, allowing DJ LeMahieu to pick up starts. Gregorius hit .268 last year in 134 games with a career-high 27 homers, 86 RBI and 10 stolen bases.
