Gregorius was one of the final cuts of the spring after losing out to Chris Owings for the starting shortstop job.

"I'm sure he took the demotion pretty tough, but went down there in the right frame of mind, positive attitude, and he's an injury away from being back up here and hopefully contributing," D-backs GM Kevin Towers said. "So we're happy with what he's done."

Gregorius has been alternating between second base and shortstop along with Nick Ahmed.
