"...the Yankees have traded for Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius.
It’s a three-team deal with the Tigers and D-backs. Detroit is getting starting pitcher Shane Greene from the Yankees and Arizona is getting starting pitcher Robbie Ray and a minor leaguer from Detroit."
We had written about Gregorius in March. Read DO WE WANT GREGORIUS OR A FARM SYSTEM?
That was written when Jeter was in the shortstop position. Now... now we have Gregorius, a 24 year old shortstop and a ton of upside.
I am happy with this, although, I am very sad to see Shane Greene go. He's a good kid, he has a ton of potential.
In the meantime... we have a new shortstop ladies and gentlemen... and his name is Didi!
