According to Bryan Hoch of, Curtis Granderson was scratched from tonight’s lineup against the Blue Jays due to right elbow soreness.

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.

    Lets hope that he is OK. I like him as a player. I think that he was the only regular not in the Yankee line up tonight. The Jays won by 4 to 3 as Drabek out pitched CC.

      I like the way you describe a game PC. “Drabek out pitched CC”, Blue Jays win. s’got a nice ring to it…

        Nah, what’s sadder is a grown person spending his time being randomly douchey to strangers who got some good news. How little you must have in life ‘harry that this is the kind of thing you do for fun. Really, I hope things improve for you and you no longer feel the need to get on here and try and piss off people.

    proudly still bragging about spring training results like every season. Why? cause he knows when they count he has NOTHING to enjoy except another .500 season and a 4th place finish

    Swisher didn’t play, either, btw.

    Anyway, anytime a MVP caliber player has an MRI, it definitely rates more than a 2 on the concern scale. WTF?!?!
