I truly believe in Didi. He's as resilient as any player on that bench. If anyone can come back, he can.

Resiliency will have nothing to do with it. The time required to heel 100% will.





Yankees don’t have to look far for Gregorius’ worst-case scenario.

All they have to do is look across town for a worse alternative. Mets utilityman T.J. Rivera underwent the same procedure on his right elbow in September 2017, with hopes of being back with the team during the latter part of this past season. Instead, his minor league rehab stint ended in July after just six games, and he was shut down for the rest of the season.

Rivera, 29, said he expects to resume a throwing program soon and is confident he’ll be fine for spring training, but he’s also learned not to predict anything when it comes to the injury. "There are a lot of ups and downs when you’re coming back,” Rivera said by phone Wednesday. “Everyone says after nine months, you’ll be back, but the arm is a tricky thing. There are a lot of weird movements when you’re throwing, and it’s hard to know how you’ll feel. It was tougher than I thought it would be.”
