And what occurred in the 1st inning of the second game of Spring Training vs. Toronto today?
A pitch hit Curtis Granderson in the arm, and the “precautionary” x-rays showed a fracture. According to the New York Times, Granderson will miss a minimum of 10 weeks.
Look there is no sugar-coating this one, as losing Granderson’s bat is really bad.
With the off-season losses of Nick Swisher, Raul Ibanez, Eric Chavez, and Russell Martin, and with Alex Rodriquez out till August makes this on the verge of devastating for the Yankees.It is no secret that Granderson strikes out a ton but he is also homerun-hitting machine. Since coming to New York in 2010, the Grandyman has 108 homers, and 292 RBIs.
