Didi Gregorius: Cut loose by Philly
The Phillies released Gregorius on Thursday.
With Philadelphia bringing second baseman Jean Segura (finger) back from the 60-day injured list ahead of Thursday's series opener against the Nationals, Gregorius was in line to lose his role as the everyday shortstop to rookie Bryson Stott, who had been filling in at the keystone during Segura's absence. Stott has been inconsistent as a hitter this season, but he's still been a more productive option of late than Gregorius, who slashed .181/.234/.284 in 167 plate appearances since being activated from the IL on June 5. The 32-year-old still has some value as a defender, though he would have had limited utility off the Philadelphia bench as a left-handed hitter who wouldn't have been a platoon option. Gregorius should get a shot with another organization, but his days as an everyday starter at shortstop for anything more than a short-term basis may be over.... See More ... See Less

Phillies' Didi Gregorius: Finally blasts first homer
Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two additional RBI in Saturday's 10-0 rout of the Marlins.
Gregorius made an out in each of his first two at-bats, then saw Alec Bohm intentionally walked ahead of him with two outs and two on in the sixth inning. Gregorius made Miami pay for that decision, lining a single to center field that plated two runs. He then doled out some extra revenge in the eighth, swatting a two-run homer to extend Philadelphia's already substantial lead. The long ball was the first of the season for Gregorius in his 188th plate appearance. He came into the campaign having knocked double-digit homers in six straight seasons, topping out at 27 with the Yankees in 2018.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Didi Gregorius: Steals first bag of year
Gregorius went 0-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 2-1 win over the Marlins.
The shortstop isn't known for his speed -- his only season with double-digit steals came back in 2018 with the Yankees -- and Friday's pilfer was his first this year in 50 games. Gregorius is also still looking for his first long ball, and without a huge second half, his streak of six straight seasons with double-digit homers will come to an end. A .159 (11-for-69) batting average over his last 20 games doesn't suggest a surge is coming any time soon, however.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Didi Gregorius: Gets Sunday off
Gregorius is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Gregorius recently overcame a knee injury and started in each of the Phillies' last four games, going 2-for-13 with a triple, two walks and an RBI across those contests. He isn't believed to be dealing with a setback to his knee, so his absence from the lineup Sunday most likely amounts to a maintenance day.... See More ... See Less

Phillies' Didi Gregorius: Tending to sore knee
Phillies interim manager Rob Thomson said Gregorius will remain out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals after receiving a pain-killing injection to help ease soreness in his left knee, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
The knee issue will keep Gregorius on the bench for the second day in a row, and with the Phillies off the schedule Monday, he'll get another day to wait for the shot to run its course before potentially checking back into the lineup for Tuesday's series opener with the Nationals. Thomson said the lingering knee issue may be at the root of Gregorius' dearth of power this season; the 32-year-old has yet to hit a home run in 155 plate appearances. Gregorius hasn't recorded a stolen base either, and his lack of production in the counting-stats categories has made it tough to justify rostering him outside of NL-only leagues.... See More ...

Phillies' Didi Gregorius: Three hits in win
Gregorius went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple and an RBI in an 8-3 win Thursday in Milwaukee.
Gregorius tripled to lead off the fourth but was left stranded. In the fifth, he had a check-swing double that drove in a run. The shortstop is 5-for-13 with a double and two triples since returning from the injured list last weekend. While he's still in search of his first homer of the year, he's been productive at the plate and has a .306/.354/.431 line through 79 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
