Gregorius leaves the Philadelphia Phillies

WILLEMSTAD - Curaçaoan baseball player Mariekson ‘Didi’ Gregorius has to look for a new club in the Major League. The Philadelphia Phillies has said goodbye to the 32-year-old Curaçaoan, who came over from New York Yankees at the end of 2019. Gregorius has been playing in the American top league MLB since 2012.  


The Phillies canceled the shortstop's contract because he wouldn't make enough at bat. In 63 games, Gregorius produced 45 base hits this season, including one homerun. Last season he hit the ball over the fences thirteen times. In his best season with the Yankees, he did so 27 times. The baseball player can now sign a contract as a so-called free agent with another club in the MLB.
