New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius returned to the Bronx in style on Friday night with a double in his first at-bat as well as a diving catch.
In his first at-bat of the season, Gregorius laced a double to right-center field off Kevin Gausman in the bottom of the second inning, but was left stranded there as the inning came to an end.
The left-hander has had an impressive return so far which includes a diving play at short in the top of the second inning to add on to his double in the same inning.

The 27-year old is coming off his best season as a major leaguer in 2016 where he sported a .276/.304/.447 slash line with 20 home runs and 70 RBI’s.
Following missing the beginning of the season due to a shoulder injury he sustained during the World Baseball Classic, Gregorius will be looking to get back to his productive ways.
