He is still two to three weeks away from rejoining the Yankees, but center fielder Curtis Granderson said that he felt just fine after playing in a simulated game on Monday, July 22. MLB.com's Adam Berry and Bryan Hoch report that Granderson "was pleased with how he felt physically" after taking three at bats and fielding fly balls before the Yankees' Monday night game. Granderson described the process as beginning Spring Training, which he missed with his forearm fracture back in March. Said Granderson, "I'm at the Spring Training point again, in terms of the schedule to hit. This is like the first couple of days before the first Spring Training game. I need some swings right now. That's the main thing I'm missing." Granderson has two more simulated games scheduled this week. The Yankees will then evaluate his progress and decide where he will go next, possibly toward a rehab assignment. There is no timetable set yet for his return, but Granderson says that he is "getting there, which is a good thing." Granderson returned from his forearm fracture on May 14. He was 7 for 28 with a home run in eight games before getting hit in the hand on May 24. That hit put him back on the disabled list with a fractured hand. The Yankees are looking for the same power and run production that led Granderson to 43 home runs and 106 RBI last year. Over the last two months, that would prorate to 14 home runs and 35 RBI -- a tall order but possible and necessary if the Yankees want to stay in postseason contention.
