Report: Phillies ‘Focusing’ on Didi Gregorius
As spring training is getting closer, teams are making a final push to finalize their rosters before heading to either Florida or Arizona.
On Tuesday night, a flurry of shortstops were signed, with Andrelton Simmons heading to the Twins, Freddy Galvis inking a deal with Baltimore and Marcus Semien singing with Toronto, leaving the Phillies to focus on incumbent Didi Gregorius.
Gregorius had a fine debut season with the Phillies in 2020, hitting .284 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI, playing in all 60 games. He is reportedly looking for a 2-year, $30-million deal per Jon Heyman of the MLB Network.
The Phillies finalized a deal with catcher J.T Realmuto earlier on Tuesday, and might being back the entire band if they can agree on a deal with Gregorius. If the Phillies bring Gregorius back, they would essentially have the same everyday lineup that they rolled out in 2020.
Either way, Gregorius would be a solid signing for the Phillies.
