Phillies Sign Didi Gregorius on Reported One-Year Deal

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

This had been rumored for some time because of the Joe Girardi connection, but now it looks like it’s going down, as Yung Joc once said:

Joel Sherman on it first:

And this guy says it’s a one-year deal with the 29-year-old short stop:

No dollar amounts out there yet, at least nothing that I see, but Crossing Broad baseball guy Bob is on board, saying:

Love the the signing. Love it even more on a one-year deal. Has big potential in a show-me year.

Gregorius played a couple of seasons with the Reds and Diamondbacks before being traded to the Yankees at the end of 2014. With his addition, you’re looking at an infield of Gregorius, Rhys Hoskins, Jean Segura at 2nd, and Scott Kingery at 3rd, I think, assuming they don’t go the trade route and turn their focus to finding another pitcher. They’re getting up against the tax now and we aren’t entirely sure how ownership feels about going over.

I’ll update this if anything new comes down, RE: the Gregorius dollar amount.

    Fucking Between hiring Joe Girardi, adding fucking Didi and Zack attack Wheeler, and Mcclutch returning, the Phillies have already added 10-15 more wins from last years team .wins to last years team.

    Didi’s a nice player, but extremely streaky at the plate. He will have a 20-25 game stretch where he hits the crap out of the ball. The other 75% of the season he will likely remind phils fans of desi relaford with his limp wrist power. Plays a good shortstop and is a good clubhouse guy. Is Segura supposed to stick around? Girardi isn’t going to tolerate his shit

    Thank you Megan for you SI speech
