The Philadelphia Phillies have been without their veteran shorstop Didi Gregorius since early May. In fact, Gregorius hasn't played an MLB game since May 12 as he's been dealing with lingering elbow issue.
The elbow issue was finally diagnosed as pseudogout, a form of arthritis. Fortunately for the Phillies, it looks like their 10-year veteran shortstop should be back in the lineup in no time.
Didi Gregorius Injury Update
Gregorius resumed his rehab assignment with the Phillies Triple-A affiliate on Thursday and looked dialed in. He saw three plate appearances and reached safely in all three, going 2-for-2 with a double and a walk.
With such a promising appearance in his rehab assignment, the Phillies' decision just comes down to how their veteran shortstop feels after getting in-game reps. If Gregorius is feeling healthy, then we should see him back in Philadelphia's lineup sooner rather than later.
The Phillies currently sit at 34-37. They only trail the first-place New York Mets by 5.0 games in the NL East standings. Philadelphia owns +1100 odds to win the division, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. However, a fully healthy Gregorius may go a long way in changing those odds.
