Big news was dropped by Yankees manager Aaron Boone at his end-of-season press conference at Yankee Stadium a few minutes ago: Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius is going to have Tommy John surgery.

Boone said Gregorius had an MRI which revealed the need for the ligament replacement surgery. The damage is in his right elbow, which is his throwing elbow even though he bats left-handed. Boone said he believes the injury occurred on a ball he fielded in either Game 1 or Game 2 of the NLDS. Which means he played Games 3 and 4 with the damage. He did. however, manage to go 2-for-4 with a double in Game 2.

As for what this means for Gregorius going forward, Boone said that he expects that he will return at some point in  2019, saying that he expects Gregorius will play “a lot of the season.” He obviously, however, will not be able to work out this offseason in the same way he always does and will not be ready for spring training.

As for what it means for the Yankees: they’re in the market for a shortstop.

I wonder if one is available?
