TGP Prospects Night Open Thread featuring Didi Gregorius


Didi Gregorius has been through a lot in his very short MLB career. Gregorius was originally signed as an international free agent by the Cincinnati Reds before the Arizona Diamondbacks traded their top pitching prospect to the Reds for Gregorius. Gregorius went on to hit his first Major League home run inside Yankee Stadium as a member of the Diamondbacks against the Yankees and Phil Hughes in what was a strong rookie campaign. The Yankees had a front row seat at what Gregorius can do with that home run and they acquired his services in the winter before the 2015 season in the deal that basically saw New York give up Shane Greene. 

You can learn all this and more in the video above that showcases Didi's rise as a rookie in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. It even has an interview with Didi, Andrelton Simmons of the Atlanta Braves (at the time) and Didi's coaches and managers. It's worth the watch so check it out.
