Curtis Granderson looks ready to go

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.

    Ive looked all over. I’ve Googled it, check mlb.com, the Yankees website. I for the life of me dont know who Brett Granderson is. Maybe I’m just stupid. Or maybe Craig is? Hmmmmmmmmmmm

      See, the Yankees having taken to bizzare cloning experiments to keep a Championship calibre club on the field. ….Craig just happened to be the first one to identify one of the new clone players.

      He’s a pretty amazing player. He’s an athlete who is not afraid to get his shirt dirty. A natural athlete with tWtW.

      I wonder if Aaron takes more offense to being called stupid, or being mistaken for Craig?

        Ooops

    Grandy! I hope you’re back at it soon.

    Well, he fixed it. I actually wasn’t sure whether it was an error or he was suggesting a platoon in center field.
