Didi Gregorius left the World Baseball Classic and returned to Tampa…but the reason isn’t good.
Gregorius complained of shoulder pain and immediately had a preliminary MRI. Unfortunately, manager Joe Girardi said Gregorius has hematoma of the subcapsular muscle and will undergo more tests in Tampa tomorrow.
So what is hematoma of the subcapsular muscle? Well, in layman’s terms, Gregorius has a blood clot in one of the muscles in his shoulders, hence explaining the pain.
There’s no timetable for Gregorius’ return…but the Yankees aren’t sugarcoating it.
Gregorius’ injury is bad, and they could lose him for a part of April if it’s serious.
