Gregorious this season has a batting average of .400, OBP of
.423, and a .800 slugging percentage. The Arizona Shortstop of the future was acquired
last winter in a three-way trade with Cincinnati and Cleveland. It was the same
deal that sent 2011 first round pick Trevor Bauer and Bryan Shaw to the Indians.
Earlier during Spring Training he was shut down from baseball activities due to
a strained UCL.
With Didi Gregorious more than likely going on the seven day
DL, the D-backs depth in the minor leagues will be tested. Utility man Willie
Bloomquist is already on the DL, the options to replace him for the time being
are limited. Cliff Pennington will likely be the short stop for the time being
and maybe Martin Prado could also see some action at short.
