Didi Gregorius; Shortstop for New York Yankees tore off his cartilage, status currently unknown

The road to victory for the 28 World Series for NY Yankees suddenly took a detour. Their shortstop Didi Gregorius tore his right wrist’s cartilage during their Saturday night’s win. This injury can leave the Yankees without their starting shortstop for a while now. At the moment, it is reported that a cortisone shot was administered to Gregorius and he will be revaluated after few days.

The cartilage tear happened during the extra innings when Gregorius was able to score a game winning run. This new predicament has been very untimely for Yankees especially when Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez have both lost significant time.

Gregorius told media on Sunday, “I slid to my home plate and my right hand got stuck. During celebration, everything was fine. When I got home, I was fine. After I woke up the next morning, it was hurting really bad.”

The spot for Gregorius can potentially be given to Adeiny Hechavarria. Aaron Boone; manager of the Yankees has also proposed sending in Gleyber Torres for some starting shorts.

Boone has also not confirmed as to when Yankees will have Gregorius back on team he just said that it is “unsure at the moment”.

Gregorius said to media frustrated over his injury that, “it is really frustrating for me as I am not applying anymore. I am going to take it day to day and see how far it goes. I do have some movement in there. They say that these kinds of things happen to lot of players and some are able to make it through just fine”.
