He plays at SS, or at worst 2B. Anything less would be a waste of talent and risk his prospect status. If either Cozart or Phillips get injured with Gregorius in AAA, call him up and give him a chance to start. If neither does, then trade him or Cozart for value. He doesn't seem like the kind of guy who can be pigeonholed into a different position and still keep his value.
BTW, Elvis Andrus probably isn't the best comp (went with a first glance of current shortstops), given that Gregorius doesn't steal much. Replace the steals with a higher OBP and a little power, and you have a good idea of what I mean.
Doug, who would you give as the best comp?
