New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius to have Tommy John surgery

Shortstop Didi Gregorius will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow, the Yankees announced in a press conference at Yankee Stadium on Friday.

In his press conference on Friday, manager Aaron Boone said Gregorius may have injured himself in Boston, meaning he played Game 3 and Game 4 in the Bronx even though he was dinged up. NY was 82-48 in games when Gregorius started.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said he was uncertain if the club would look to obtain another player as a fill-in until Gregorius recovers but called Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres, who played 21 games this year at shortstop, "by far the best player for consideration" on the current lineup.

Just days after the Yankees suffered a heartbreaking 4-3 loss to the Red Sox in Game 4 of the ALDS to end their season, some brutal injury news has arrived on Gregorius.

Fielders often recover faster from tendon replacements. Now, he'll have a long rehab process in front of him, as he'll hope to play at some point during the 2019 season.

Gregorius tore cartilage in his right wrist in September and the team initially thought that he would miss the remainder of the season and postseason.

He finished the season with 27 home runs, 86 RBIs and a.286 batting average.
