Yankees may move struggling Didi Gregorius down in lineup
After one of the hottest starts to the season, New York Yankees shortstop has fallen into a deep slump that could see him dropped in the lineup.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone gave Gregorius the day off Sunday against a left-handed pitcher, and hinted that the shortstop may not return to the three hole when he does return to the lineup.
Interesting from Boone this morning. When Gregorius is back in the lineup, he didn’t commit to slotting him back in the 3 hole where he’s spent the last month.

Gregorius has one hit in his last 42 at-bats after a scorching start to the year. The three hole seems to be a bit cursed for the Yankees this season, but it makes sense to go in a different direction at this point, at least temporarily.
