Gregorius is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Meredith Marakovits of the YES Network reports.

While not in an official platoon, Gregorius has gotten regular days off against left-handed pitching, and that will happen again Wednesday as the Yankees draw southpaw Mark Buerhle. Stephen Drew will slide over to shortstop, while Jose Pirela will make his season debut and start at second.

Gregorius went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's win over the Red Sox.

Gregorius sports a slash line of just .212/.274/.242, but he's been swinging the bat better of late as he's collected a hit in five of his last six games. He receives regular days off as part of an unofficial middle infield platoon, so he'll have to prove he can hit lefties better -- he's slashing .133/.278/.133 against southpaws this season -- to stay in the lineup with more regularity.

Gregorius isn't in the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

Gregorius will receive a night off with a southpaw in Jon Niese toeing the rubber for the Mets. He remains the everyday shortstop for the Yankees, but it's been a bit of a struggle for him at the plate to begin the season.

Gregorius is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Newsday's Erik Boland reports.

While Gregorius may not be in a strict platoon, the Yankees seemingly want to limit his at-bats against left-handed pitchers, which makes perfect sense if you look at the young shortstop's track record. Stephen Drew will start Tuesday's game at shortstop, with Gregorio Petit getting the nod at second base.

Gregorius is not in the starting lineup Saturday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Gregorius is out of the lineup Friday against the Red Sox, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Gregorius collected his first hit of the season Thursday, going 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in the loss to the Blue Jays.

It was the club's first game against a left-handed starter, and despite some speculation during spring training that the team would employ a platoon at shortstop, Gregorius was in the lineup. Manager Joe Girardi indicated that he'd like to get Gregorio Petit in the lineup against southpaws, so Gregorius likely wit sit occasionally against lefties -- including an expected day off for the 25-year-old Friday -- but the plan for now appears to have him get the bulk of the starts, regardless of the starting pitcher.

Gregorius probably won't be in the lineup for Friday's game against Wade Miley and the Red Sox, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.

Gregorius has struggled terribly against southpaws to this point in his career, and while the Yankees haven't explicitly said that he'll be part of a platoon, the young shortstop figures to get plenty of days off when the team faces left-handed pitchers. The Yankees' middle infield will likely be manned by Gregorio Petit and Stephen Drew on Friday, as Brendan Ryan (calf) and Jose Pirela (concussion) are both on the disabled list.

Gregorius reported feeling fine after getting hit in the elbow Monday and is expected to be in the lineup Wednesday, The Westchester Journal News reports.

Gregorius remained in the game afterward, so there didn't seem to be a high level of concern at the time, but manager Joe Girardi indicated it would be a situation the team will continue to monitor as swelling could still occur the day after. The team has a day off Tuesday, so even if Gregorius needed some rest he should be good to go for Wednesday's contest after the off day.

Gregorius is in the lineup for Thursday's spring game.

Gregorius was initially supposed to return to spring action Wednesday but was pushed back a day as he continued to deal with swelling in his wrist. It appears as though it's no longer an issue, so the 25-year-old should be good to go for Opening Day. The team had been exploring the possibility of Gregorius being part of a platoon at shortstop, but with Brendan Ryan likely sidelined for the foreseeable future with a calf strain, Gregorius will likely start on an everyday basis.
