Latest Update Didi Gregorius drives in only run on Thursday Fri Jun, 20, 06:29 AM
Owns a great glove for the shortstop position. Is also an emerging hitter with the potential for all-around production.
Flaws: : Needs to develop his offensive game, since he's still quite raw with the bat. Also needs to become a better base-runner.
Gregorious has been far from being a solid fantasy producer his being recalled earlier in the month, sitting on a .205 average with two home runs and four RBI in 39 at-bats. He has done little to ensure the Diamondbacks get him in the everyday lineup, and once the team is back at 100 percent health there is a good chance he heads back to the minors giving him little fantasy value moving forward.

Not that Gregorius' bat is anything to write home about, but he is quite adept with the glove. He may be a natural shortstop, but he's playing third base Thursday amd adding the outfield to his resume would certainly improve his value in fantasy.Analyst: Howard Bender
Didi is starting in place of Martin Prado who has struggled in his career against Brewers start Yovani Gallardo. Didi is not known for his offensive capabilities so its best for those in daily formats to look elsewhere. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
While Gregorius won't supplant Chris Owings at shortstop, he definitely has the opportunity to try and work himself into a platoon. He's a career .275 hitter against right-handers while Owings is batting just .241 against them this season. Kirk Gibson hasn't indicated that Gregorius is in for any additional playing time with the call-up, but fantasy owners should be prepared.Analyst: Howard Bender
