Originally written February 24, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees have suffered a tremendous blow. On Sunday, February 24, 2013, Yankees’ centerfielder Curtis Granderson left the Spring Training game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the first inning after getting hit by a pitch on his right forearm. In the seventh inning, Yankees’ announcers Michael Kay and Ken Singleton reported that examination showed that Granderson has suffered a fractured right forearm and will miss 10 weeks. He will likely see action again as late as mid-May. MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch tweeted to his followers the same information. Yankees announce Granderson has a fractured right forearm. 10 weeks until MLB ready. — Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) February 24, 2013 Granderson spoke with YES Network’s Meredith Marokovitz during the seventh inning. He did not initially think he had a fracture, but after seeing the X-ray, Granderson confirmed that the fracture “is clear as day.” He was also optimistic that he will be ready to go as soon as he can start hitting and throwing once again. The Yankees were already searching for a fourth outfielder, preferably a right-handed hitter who can also DH. Now, they have an even bigger hole to fill. Granderson hit 43 home runs and drove in 106 RBI in 2012. With the loss of a lot of power over the offseason, the Yankees needed that same production from Granderson. Now, they will have to rely even more on Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, and Kevin Youkilis to step up their production. Sources: Bryan Hoch, Twitter Message, February 24, 2013.
