An MRI taken Saturday on Curtis Granderson‘s sore right hamstring ruled out any sort of structural damage, but he does have mild tendinitis and isn’t quite ready to return to the Yankees’ starting lineup.
According to Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger, manager Joe Girardi said this morning that his center fielder will be sidelined for another “day or two” to ensure that a minor hamstring issue is not made major. Chris Dickerson is starting in center as the Yanks wrap up a three-game set with the Orioles.
Granderson, 31, is batting .235/.326/.484 with 34 home runs, 15 doubles and 79 RBI through 131 games played this season. The Bombers are currently 76-56, ranking first place in the American League East.
