TAMPA, Fla. – New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius went 1-to-3 with a trip like the designated hitter in a prolonged spring training game on Wednesday after taking a day of dehydration.
Gregorius, coming back from Tommy John's operation last October, got an IV after playing in his first extended spring game Monday. Having done over an hour of premiere work on the course, he played five innings in stifling 90 degree conditions.
"What happened Monday? Dehydrated. Just got a headache," Gregory said. "Nothing is too crazy. Well found yesterday, and today it was really good. Everything is 100 percent good."
Gregory could join the Yanks in the middle of late June.
Gregorius injured his elbow as he slipped from the left field after a ball trapped by Fenway Park's green monster during game 2 of the American League Division Series in Boston.
Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who has not played since March 31 due to a strained left biceps and then a strained left shoulder, was scratched on Tuesday night from his second rehab game with a Tampa. He has discomfort near the knee, the result of being hit by a pitch in a simulated game last week.
Stanton could play Wednesday night.
Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, since April 3 next to a tense left calf, continued work on his defensive versatility by adding work to another base beyond shortstop and third base.
Tulowitzki could be ready to meet live pitching at the weekend.
Outfield prospect Estevan Florial, who broke the wrist during spring training, has been added to the active extended spring training program.
