UPDATE: Good news for the Bombers. According to Erik Boland of New York Newsday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the MRI didn’t show anything serious. He’s dealing with some “mild tendinitis” and could play as soon as tomorrow.
2:27 PM: Things just aren’t going the Yankees’ way right now.
Curtis Granderson was forced to leave this afternoon’s game against the Orioles after just two innings due to tightness in his right hamstring. More should be known on his status after he undergoes a precautionary MRI.
Ichiro Suzuki moved over to center field after Granderson exited and should get most of the playing time there for now. Alex Rodriguez began a minor league rehab assignment last night and is likely just a couple of days away from returning from the disabled list, but this Yankees’ lineup isn’t nearly as scary with Granderson and Mark Teixeira both sidelined.
