Curtis Granderson is inching towards resuming full baseball activities, as he will have the brace on his injured right forearm removed soon, according to the Newark Star Ledger. Yesterday marked six weeks since Granderson was hit by a J.A. Happ fastball in his first spring training at-bat.
The slugging outfielder has been running, taking fly balls and lifting with his legs, so he hasn’t been entirely inactive. Granderson said that he doesn’t need a lot of rehab games once he is cleared to play, so his return to the team is expected to be quick. It was first reported that Granderson would be sidelined for 10 weeks. This means we wouldn’t see Grandy back for another 4-5 weeks, which puts him in the Bronx around mid-May.
Granderson, along with Mark Teixeira, are both expected to rejoin the team around the same time – barring any setbacks. The two represent major offensive firepower, and would immediately upgrade the lineup. Until they come back, the current bombers have to step up and contribute.

The New York Yankees are 2-4 after six games. I know it is only six games and you really can’t judge after that. There is a lot of panic in Yankee land and a lot of people saying I told you so. I am not really one of those people because I believe that the Yankees will be able to hang in there until they get some of their stars back and then they can fully compete with the...
Please I am begging you to stop. Oh and drop the act like you don’t know what I am talking about.
The New York Yankees have to stop losing, today. Everybody knows that the Bronx Bombers are dealing with an unprecedented number of injuries to big players. But that is no excuse, as Yankees ownership knows better. Hal Steinbrenner could have spent some money in the off...
