Diamondbacks | Didi Gregorius to compete at SS

Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said SS Didi Gregorius will compete with SSs Willie Bloomquist and Cliff Pennington for the job at shortstop in spring training. "If he had to go back to Triple-A, I don't think it's such a bad thing. I think Triple-A at-bats would be good for him. Fortunately, we're in a situation where we've got depth at that area. Long term, having a guy like him and (Triple-A shortstop) Chris Owings, we've got two, I think industry-wide, two of the best young middle infielders in the game," Towers said about Gregorius. One talent evaluator said Gregorius could play in the big leagues right away.
