With everyone focused on when Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter might come off the disabled list, Curtis Granderson got three plate appearances in a simulated game at the Yankees’ spring training complex in Florida.

Granderson has been out for two months with a fractured left pinkie finger and afterward told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that he’s basically back to where he was in spring training in terms of game readiness: “I need some swings right now. That’s the main thing I’m missing.”

Granderson has played just eight games for the Yankees all season between two lengthy disabled list stints, but is now close to beginning a minor-league rehab assignment and seems on track to come off the shelf in early August.

    Very disappointed. I was hoping this was a story about Granderson playing APBA or Strat.

      His Mom told him to get out of the house and get some fresh air. The next breathless update we’ll get on HBT is: “Curtis Granderson hit two over the clothesline in a simulated game”

    I fully expected to hear that he was re-injured in a simulated game. Jeter after 7 innnings and then Arod in a rehab game. Grandy is such a topper, you know.
