Salisbury reports that Gregorius made appearances in rehab with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs Triple-A last week while recovering from a bone contusion to his right elbow.
Gregorius originally bowed on April 16 as he tried to catch second goal. The 31-year-old tried to overcome the pain but landed on the injured list almost a month later. Gregorius last played for the Phillies on May 12.
Salisbury reports that “before heading to Lehigh Valley last week, Gregorius said the swelling had subsided and the problem had resolved”.
Gregorius is hitting .229 this season for the Phillies with four homers in 32 games.
