Two weeks ago Curtis Granderson underwent surgery to insert a metal pin into his broken pinkie finger, at which point the Yankees announced that he’d be out for at least four weeks.
Asked yesterday about Granderson’s potential return timetable, manager Joe Girardi told Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger: “I think it’s hard to say.”
Girardi noted that Francisco Cervelli is closer to returning than Granderson and Cervelli hasn’t even started to swing a bat yet as he comes back from a broken hand. All of which means the Yankees aren’t counting on having Granderson back in the lineup before the All-Star break.
