Gregorius had an MRI on Thursday that revealed a tear. He and the Yankees are still determining when surgery will be performed.

The team believes it was during Game 2 of the American League Division Series last Saturday in Boston when Gregorius injured his right elbow. The throw that did it came in the seventh inning of a game New York ultimately won 6-2.
