If everything continues to go smoothly, Curtis Granderson could be back in a Yankees uniform for Tuesday night’s series-opener against the Mariners.
The veteran outfielder went 2-for-4 with an RBI on Saturday night at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. It was his third minor league rehab game and he came out of it feeling fine. Granderson is now 4-for-12 (.333) with a home run and three RBI since being cleared last week for live minor league action.
Granderson has been on the shelf since fracturing his right forearm in a late-February Grapefruit League game. He hit .232/.319/.492 with 43 home runs and 106 RBI in 160 games last season for New York.
The Yankees seem likely to keep Brett Gardner in center field and shift Granderson to left.
