Yankees' Didi Gregorius to miss six weeks with shoulder injury

And for the second time, it happened to the New York Yankees, as shortstop Didi Gregorius sustained a strained subscapularis muscle in his right (throwing) shoulder while playing for the Netherlands in the WBC.

According to manager Joe Girardi, it is a real possibility that the 27-year-old shortstop could miss the entire month of April to open up the 2017 campaign. But with the Yankees' many shortstop prospects and the hope Gregorius will heal, it's unlikely they'd want to bring in anyone who is signed past this season.

Gregorius, who was injured during an exhibition game Saturday, likely will not return until May at the earliest, according to NY general manager Brian Cashman.

Candidates will await the polls in the coming days to fully know who were the real winners and losers from the TV debate. Macron - who is running under the progressive En Marche! banner - has continued to gain support in recent weeks.

Tyler Wade and Ronald Torreyes are candidates to replace Gregorius at shortstop for the Yankees. Gregorius left the WBC, where he was competing with the team from the Netherlands, and returned to the Yankees' spring training facility in Tampa, Florida, to undergo further tests Tuesday.

Gregorius enjoyed a breakout season in 2016, batting.276 with 20 home runs and 70 RBIs.

Torres hit.448 (13 for 29) with two home runs, nine RBIs, eight runs, six doubles, one triple and a 1.400 OPS in 19 games.
