Yan­kees’ Gre­go­rius needs surgery

Albany Times Union - - MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL -

The New York Yan­kees say star short­stop Didi Gre­go­rius will need Tommy John surgery on his right el­bow af­ter in­jur­ing him­self dur­ing the AL Di­vi­sion Se­ries.

The team said in an un­ex­pected an­nounce­ment Fri­day that surgery has not yet been sched­uled. Man­ager Aaron Boone is op­ti­mistic Gre­go­rius will spend most of next sea­son with the club, but the team will know more af­ter surgery. The Yan­kees say he was hurt mak­ing a throw af­ter a ball bounced off the left­field wall in Bos­ton dur­ing Game 1 or Game 2. The Red Sox elim­i­nated the Yan­kees in four games.

Gre­go­rius, the an­chor of the Yan­kees’ in­field, hit .268 with 27 homers and 86 RBIS.

Rangers: For­mer World Se­ries cham­pion Joe Gi­rardi has been in­ter­viewed by Texas in its search for a new man­ager. Peo­ple fa­mil­iar with the de­tails said the Rangers in­ter­viewed Gi­rardi, the for­mer New York Yan­kees and Florida Mar­lins man­ager, on Fri­day in Ar­ling­ton. The team is mak­ing no pub­lic com­ments about the first round of in­ter­views as it looks to re­place fired man­ager Jeff Banis­ter. Gi­rardi man­aged the Yan­kees to a World Se­ries ti­tle in 2009, their 27th over­all and only one since 2000.
