Mariekson Julius Gregorius (born February 18, 1990) is a Dutch baseball shortstop for the Arizona Diamondbacks of Major League Baseball.

Professional career[edit]

Gregorius was added to the Reds 40 man roster on November 18, 2011.[1] On September 1, 2012, the Reds promoted Gregorius to the major leagues as a September call-up.[2] Gregorius made his Major League debut vs the Philadelphia Phillies, on September 5, 2012.

After the 2012 season, the Reds traded Gregorius to the Arizona Diamondbacks as part of a three team trade that also involved the Cleveland Indians. The Reds sent Gregorius to Cleveland along with Drew Stubbs in exchange for Shin-Soo Choo and Jason Donald. The Tribe then flipped Gregorius to Arizona with reliever Tony Sipp and infielder Lars Anderson for pitchers Trevor Bauer, Bryan Shaw and Matt Albers.[3]

On April 18, 2013, Gregorius hit his first career home run off of Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes on the first pitch.

Personal life[edit]

Gregorius resides in Curaçao.[4]
