Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is ready to play after fouling a ball off his right calf against the Rangers Friday night, per The Post's George A. King III.
Gregorius caught a foul ball off his calf in the eighth inning, and while he was in clear pain walking it off, he finished his at-bat with a groundout. However, he was taken out of the game and replaced by Ronald Torreyes at shortstop in the ninth.
After the game, Gregorius made it clear that he will play Saturday afternoon.
"I don't want to sit down, especially now," he said when asked if he needed a day to rest. "It means a lot."
The 27-year-old admitted the foul ball did some damage.
"It's swollen. I got myself good," he said.
Gregorius smashed his career-high 21st homer Friday. He is hitting .291 with 68 RBI in 116 games this season.
