New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson has taken the
next step in his recovery from a fractured forearm, as he resumed throwing
yesterday for the first time since sustaining his injury, according to Andy McCullough of The Star-Ledger.
Granderson told his followers on Twitter that the session
went “really well,” adding that it was “another good sign, and a step closer”
to returning. Yankees manager Joe Girardi agreed with Granderson, noting that
the progress was “big.”
“That’s big,” Girardi said. “That means the bone has healed.
Now it’s just the rehab process and getting him to where he can play in some
games, and getting him back here.”
Girardi also said that Granderson had to resume throwing
before he could begin swinging a bat. That will be the next big step in his
recovery process, which the team hopes concludes in Granderson’s return to the
majors by the middle of May.
Granderson is one of several Yankees players that continues
to recover from injury, a list that also includes Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira
and Alex Rodriguez.
