Yankees general manager Brian Cashman classified his level of concern as “two or less” on a scale of one to 10, so it doesn’t sound like there’s any serious cause for alarm, but the slugging center fielder will be sent for a precautionary MRI tomorrow.
“He reported that his elbow is a little sore,” Cashman said. “We’ll do a precautionary MRI to make sure it’s nothing significant. We don’t believe it is. Better safe than sorry.”
Granderson, who turned 31 earlier this month, batted .262/.364/.552 last season while establishing new career-highs with 41 homers, 119 RBI, 136 runs scored and a .916 OPS.
