Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson was hit on his right arm by a J.A. Happ pitch in the second inning of Sunday’s Grapefruit League game vs. the Blue Jays. Granderson appeared to be in pain and was immediately lifted, but the early word is good.

According to beat man Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, Granderson has been diagnosed with a “bruised right forearm.” The Yankees sent him for X-rays to rule out any sort of fracture but are calling those tests “precautionary.”

We’ll provide further details as they’re released.

Granderson batted .232/.319/.492 with 43 home runs, 106 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 160 games last season for New York. The 31-year-old is expected to make the transition to left field this summer, allowing the speedier Brett Gardner to take over in center.


UPDATE, 3:17 PM: Granderson’s forearm is broken and he will be out for the next 10 weeks.

    Hopefully the Yanks deck at least 3 jays batters, i strongly believe in the 3 to 1 ratio when it comes to punk stuff like this. very typical of the bluejays, they can’t win any other way so they do stuff like this. Enjoy 4th place LOSERS!!!

      All class as always, ‘harry. No one can throw their own crap like you. Just wash your hands before you groom your fur this time, mmkay? And go bathe.

        Yea thats right jerk, the jays have no class, never have and the Yanks should plunk at least 3 of their batters to show them we will not put up with nonsense like this. I hope your legs grow together too

        whew!! Still haven’t bathed, eh? Just stand down wind of me, please.

        Who is “we”?

      • historiophiliac - Feb 24, 2013 at 3:41 PM

        Excuse me, I am unfamiliar with this evil wish “I hope your legs grow together.” What does this mean? If you were female, it would make sense to me, but I’m at a loss. Is he wishing you’d turn into a merman…or a Marlin?

      • tfbuckfutter - Feb 24, 2013 at 3:44 PM

        I like to think he means that they fuse together at the feet, and then he has to walk around like a ballerina all the time.

        But if he means the entire legs get stuck together I can tell you one thing….I would never enter a potato sack race against him if there was money on the line.

      • tfbuckfutter - Feb 24, 2013 at 3:45 PM

        Or maybe he is just wishing it becomes very difficult for him to buy pants and shoes.

      • cur68 - Feb 24, 2013 at 3:48 PM

        When you two have this figured out, let me know, eh? I’ll respond to the insult directly when it makes some damn sense. Meanwhile, THEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeee Beavers WIIIIIIIIIINNNNNnnnnnnn…..

      • tfbuckfutter - Feb 24, 2013 at 4:06 PM

        Wait! Maybe it wasn’t an insult at all.

        Maybe what he meant was that he hopes your legs grow at the same rate as one another.

        Which is actually a nice sentiment because he doesn’t want you walking around all lopsided.

        And, seeing that you’re most likely an adult and done growing, maybe he is also wishing a growth spurt for you in the near future. That would also be a terrific sentiment, assuming you aren’t already abnormally tall.

        Maybe you should say “thank you”.

        Or, he hopes cur turns into a human pogo stick, which would be pretty cool if you think about it. We can always find him in a crowd. He can see over people to find what the hold up is. It gives him a pretty solid fetish license. He gets a unique superpower identity that no one will copy. Yeah, cur, I think he used one of his 3 genie wishes for good on you. Awww, harry. :)

    Ah, c’mon. JA Happ couldn’t bruise and apple. Suck it up Grandy! Minor flesh wound.
    (seriously: hope he’s ok)

    Game’s on MLB.TV, too! Baseball!!

    Broken arm. Happ sucks. There needs to be SERIOUS retaliations!!!!!

    • cur68 - Feb 24, 2013 at 3:13 PM

      Damn. That sucks for Grandy. I like that guy, too.

      Retaliations? Really? You think the Beav hit Granderson on purpose in a meaningless Spring Training game? Right. JA Happ is auditioning for a place in the starting rotation. Striking out Granderson is in his best interests. Given that Grandy is a SO MACHINE, you’d think the soft option for Happ is the easy SO. Hitting him = no place in the starting rotation for a guy who can’t find the strike zone on an easy strike out batter.

      Grandy on my TV being interviewed by a really zaftig lass. Hat tip to him: he’s got a good attitude.

      • historiophiliac - Feb 24, 2013 at 3:44 PM

        Except that Grandy was tied w/ Hamy Chews last year for 2nd in most HR’s in AL….behind MVP Miggy!

      • cur68 - Feb 24, 2013 at 3:46 PM

        I will not deny it: that’s good news from an AL Beast standpoint. BUT its a net loss for all baseball, so, while not zero sum, I ultimately wish he were still able to play. Baseball’s better with Grandy hitting bombs.

      • historiophiliac - Feb 24, 2013 at 8:18 PM

        How do I get thumbs down on a true statement?

    Michael Kay just reported on the air that it’s a broken bone and that Granderson is out for ten weeks.
