Gregorius is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the A's.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With the Yankees facing lefty Sean Manaea on Saturday, Gregorius will be replaced at shortstop by Ronnie Torreyes. Gregorius has actually been extremely effective against southpaws this season, batting .343 with a .807 OPS, but manager Joe Girardi is stacking his lineup with righties against the young Manaea given that Manaea has a .379 batting average against when facing righties.

Gregorius went 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored in Friday's win over the A's.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The shortstop is working on a modest five-game hitting streak, as he's followed up a difficult opening month with a .281 average in May. Gregorius has historically struggled against lefties -- hitting .227 on his career against southpaws -- but he's hitting .343 against them thus far this year.

Gregorius went 3-for-3 with an RBI double in Saturday's 2-1 victory over the White Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old is climbing out of some early-season struggles, and has now raised his average 18 points during May. He's managed multi-hit games in two of his last four contests, and his RBI single in the second off Jose Quintana turned out to be the difference in the ball game. Gregorius' season line is up to .243/.261/.383 over 107 at-bats.

Gregorius is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gregorious is actually faring better against lefties (.286 BA) than righties (.197 BA) this season; but no matter, he will be held out Friday with left-hander Chris Sale on the mound for the White Sox. Ronnie Torreyes will get the start at shortstop in Gregorius' place.

Gregorius doubled twice and knocked in three runs in a 2-for-4 game Tuesday against the Yankees.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gregorius has knocked in three runs twice in the past four games, but he still has a brutal .229/.250/.344 on the season. Even with two doubles in Tuesday's contest, he has just seven extra-base hits in 102 plate appearances this season. Between his lack of power and a 16:2 K:BB on the year, it's hard to find the upside for Gregorius.

Gregorius went 2-for-3 with a double, three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 8-2 victory over the Red Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old shortstop had struggled against David Price in the past, but solved him early Saturday. His two-out, bases-loaded double in the fourth plated Starlin Castro, Mark Teixeira and Dustin Ackley, giving Gregorius five RBI in just six May games. He's also hit safely in four of the last five games, and is slashing .235/.258/.341 through 85 at-bats.

Gregorius is out of the lineup Wednesday against Texas, Erik Boland of NewsdaySports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gregorius will get the night off to avoid a lefty-lefty matchup with Martin Perez on the mound for the Rangers. The 26-year-old is 6-for-22 against lefties this year so the Yankees will give righty, Ronnie Torreyes, who is 2-for-5 this season against left-handers, the nod at shortstop. Gregorius will likely return to the lineup Friday against the Red Sox.

Gregorius is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the A's.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ronnie Torreyes will take Gregorius' place at shortstop Thursday with the Yankees facing a lefty in Oakland's Rich Hill. Gregorius raised his average to .250 on Wednesday with a 2-for-4 performance that included a home run, but manager Joe Girardi will avoid the lefty-lefty matchup Thursday by having Torreyes take his spot in the lineup.

Gregorious went 2-for-4 at the plate and hit his second home run of the season in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Oakland.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Hitting at the bottom of the New York lineup, Gregorius doesn't offer much in the way of fantasy value right now, hitting just .250 with four RBI. He hit just .265 with the Yankees a year ago, but did produce a career-high nine homers and 56 RBI. He's currently on pace to pass the home runs number, but owners will want to see his .250 average come up.
