When you lose your shortstop and three-hitter to a potentially season-ending injury, obviously, it's not a great sign for your team's betting odds. But it seems like the Yankees are immune to that.


Despite shortstop Did Gregorius injuring his right throwing wrist on the head-first slide that clinched a playoff berth for the Yankees, the team remains at +550 -- only behind the co-leading Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros at +175 -- to win the American League pennant.

Following a cortisone shot to help repair the torn cartilage in his wrist, Gregorius said he hopes to return this year. Realistically, Yankees fans should prepare to see Gleyber Torres or Adeiny Hechavarria at shortstop for the foreseeable future.

With a bat and glove like Didi's taken out of the playoff picture, it might be best to bet on one of the four other options to come out of the American League this year.
