Yankees’ Didi Gregorius may be out for season with wrist injury
The New York Yankees have had their share of injury problems this season, but a pretty significant one appears to have popped up at the worst possible time.
According to manager Aaron Boone, shortstop Didi Gregorius may not return this season after tearing cartilage in his wrist on a slide during Saturday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles.
An oh-by-the-way from Aaron Boone:
Didi Gregorius tore cartilage in his wrist on the slide home yesterday. Boone said there is a chance he does not return this season.

The Yankees have already clinched a spot in the AL Wild Card game, but it certainly sounds likely that they’ll have to win that contest without their shortstop. They already watched him deal with a heel injury earlier in the season that caused him to miss almost three weeks of action.
Gregorius hit .268 with a career-high 27 home runs in 2018.
