Didi Gregorius was released by the Phillies Thursday.
With the acquisition of Edmundo Sosa and Jean Segura returning, there was no room for Didi on the roster. Didi slashed .210/.263/.304 with one home run, 19 RBIs, and one stolen base over 63 games in 2022. Regardless of where the veteran shortstop ends up, he does not have any fantasy value moving forward.
Did Gregorius went 1-for-4 Saturday, singling and scoring one run in the Phillies' 2-1 win over the Pirates.
Gregorius continues to struggle at the plate for the Phillies, hitting just .128 with three runs scored, one home run, and six runs batted in over his last 15 games. The veteran shortstop has been a disappointment for fantasy managers this season, carrying a .592 OPS with 17 runs scored, one home run, and 19 runs batted in through 60 games this season.
Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI on Saturday against the Marlins.
This was Gregorius's first home run of the season and it came in his 50th game played. He offers little speed (though he did steal his first base of the season on Friday) and only modest power with a mediocre batting average. In other words, Gregorius is NL-only fodder, at best.
Didi Gregorius went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, and an RBI on Thursday against the Brewers.
Gregorius is now 5-for-13 since returning from the IL with two triples, and looks to be finding his footing after missing more than a month. He lacks the power or speed to be an impact shortstop in mixed leagues but he's capable of putting up sufficient counting stats to be a middle infielder when healthy. He's worth rostering if you're generally strong in most other offensive positions.
The Phillies reinstated Didi Gregorius from the 10-day IL on Sunday.
Gregorius has been on the IL since May 5th with a knee sprain, but had looked healthy in his four-game rehab assignment with Triple-A. With Jean Segura out for several weeks, Gregorius's return was necessary, so the Phillies may have pushed him back a bit earlier than expected. Nevertheless, to the extent you were relying on him in NL-only formats, feel free to get him back in your starting lineup.
