"You don't want to get hit by a pitch," Gregorius said. "Of course when it hits you, it's painful, but I'm just happy there was nothing fractured. It's good."
Gregorius went 1-for-4 with a run scored on Tuesday, and he said that he expects to play in Wednesday's series finale. Gregorius is batting .307/.336/.439 with three home runs and 18 RBIs in 29 games this year.
