Latest Update Gregorious goes yard in loss to Nats Tue Aug, 19, 12:16 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.
Despite the return of Chad Pennington, Gregorius continues to receive regular playing time at shortstop with Monday's performance certainly helping out his case. However, he is now hitting just .226 with five home runs and 17 RBI through 164 at-bats, which makes him best served on the wavier wire at this point in the season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
The usually slick-fielding, light-hitting shortstop has been on a bit of an offensive surge lately and has hit safely in five of his last six games with four multi-hit performances. He's batting .391 (9-for-23) with two home runs, four RBI, four runs scored and two stolen bases in that span and has entrenched himself in the starting shortstop role as Nick Ahmed has gone back to the bench with the return of Aaron Hill.

The DBacks do not really expect much offense from the light hitting Didi but his home run was his third of the season to go with his less than impressive .232 average. The Diamondbacks are just biding their time until Chris Owings is healthy enough to return to action though currently there is no timetable for that to happen. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
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.
