From Newsday‘s Erik Boland comes word that center fielder Curtis Granderson is back in the Yankees’ starting lineup on Tuesday evening against the Rays.

Granderson did not play Sunday or Monday after making an early exit from Saturday’s game because of tendinitis in his right hamstring. An MRI taken over the weekend ruled out any sort of structural damage.

Granderson, 31, is batting .234/.326/.483 with 34 home runs and 79 RBI in 133 games this season.

The Yankees enter play Tuesday with a one-game lead over the Orioles in the American League East.

    Granderson actually pinch-hit for the final out yesterday, so this isn’t that surprising. It was only really a matter of DH or CF, and he’s back in the outfield which is a good sign.

    No lead in the East after tonight. O’s on a tear right now.

    Granderson and Arod back in the line-up= 4 t0 5 K’s per nine innings.
