New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson took a step forward in his recovery process yesterday, as the slugger began hitting off a tee and taking part in soft toss sessions, according to Chad Jennings of LoHud Yankees Blog. Granderson started tee and toss today. Also making throws from 90 feet. Still not sure of his timetable for a return to games. — Lohud Yankees Blog (@LoHudYankees) April 22, 2013 Jennings added that Granderson also began making throws from 90 feet. While all of this is certainly progress, there remains no timetable for when the outfielder will resume playing in games. Following his session, Granderson told reporters – including Mark Feinsand of The New York Daily News – that he’s hoping to return to the Yankees at some point in May. “It’s going to be somewhere in May; I don’t know exactly when,” Granderson said. “Everything is looking pretty good. X-rays have all been good. Everything is feeling good each step that we’ve made. The big thing is that whenever I finally start playing, getting at-bats, getting timing and stuff. Once that day comes, we’ll have a little better evaluation.” Granderson’s arm is now free of a brace. He had been fitted for one to protect his broken arm, which he sustained while being hit by a pitch during spring training. The Yankees have done well offensively without Granderson and other injured veterans, including Mark Teixeira, Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez. There are several unexpected contributors that can take some of the credit, but Vernon Wells has been an especially nice fill in for Granderson.
