Didi Gregorius to have Tommy John surgery – MLB.com

NEW YORK — The Yankees’ season just ended, and suddenly a powerhouse, 100-win playoff team faces an enormous question heading into 2019: Didi Gregorius is heading for Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm, and it’s uncertain just how long the Yankees will be without their shortstop.

The team announced Friday that an MRI had revealed a tear in Gregorius’ right ulnar collateral ligament. The Yankees believe Gregorius sustained the injury while making a throw from the outfield at Fenway Park in one of the first two games of their American League Division Series loss to the Red Sox. Gregorius then played through the UCL tear for the rest of the series, but he didn’t look like himself in the field, notably bouncing a pair of throws to first base in Game 4 at Yankee Stadium.
