Curtis Granderson has had at least one hit in all four of his minor-league rehab games, including three hits yesterday, and is batting .412 with a homer at Triple-A while preparing for his return from a fractured forearm.
Barring a late setback Granderson could come off the disabled list and rejoin the Yankees’ lineup Tuesday against the Mariners, which would mean he missed 38 games. He was initially given a 10-week recovery timetable in late February, so he’s more or less right on track.
There’s no official word on where Granderson will play in the Yankees’ outfield, but it seems safe to assume that Brett Gardner will remain in center field.
