Diamondbacks | Didi Gregorius not a bench player

Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said the team thinks SS Didi Gregorius (elbow) can benefit from starting the year in the minors because they want him to be an everyday player once he's called up. "With the glove and stuff he's ready right now," Towers said, "but it's not going to hurt him to get more ABs (at-bats) probably in the minor leagues before he's up here. We don't view him as a bench player so when he comes up here we want him to play. We've got a couple of good veterans this year that can handle the position." Gregorius won't play for the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic due to his elbow injury.
