Shortstop Didi Gregorius, who suffered a shoulder injury in the World Baseball Classic, has been ordered to avoid baseball activities for two weeks, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Tuesday.

Yankees manage Joe Girardi said Gregorius could be out longer, so it looks like NY will be without their starting shortstop to begin the season.

BJP's N Biren Singh wins Manipur test with voice vote
The BJP government in Manipur led by Chief Minister Nongthombam Biren Singh won the floor test in the state Assembly on Monday. The Congress had emerged as the largest party in the state winning 28 seats, however the party fell short of majority.

Gregorius, who was removed from the Netherlands roster, has had a preliminary MRI. The Yankees are trying to figure out how to get by now that Gregorius is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a right shoulder strain.

Tyler Wade, Ronald Torreyes or perhaps Starlin Castro could share shortstop duties for the Yankees to begin the regular season. Gleyber Torres is not viewed as a candidate, since he hasn't played above Class A level.

The 26-year-old Gregorius had a breakout year for the Yankees in 2016, batting.276/.304/.447 with 20 homeruns and 70 RBI in 153 games.

The Yankees' Didi Gregorius follows through on a sixth-inning home run against the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium on September 27, 2016. He started every one of those contests at shortstop, putting the Yankees in a bit of a quandary entering opening day.
