Yankees Granderson Out until May with Fractured Forearm

Outfielder hit by pitch in first inning Sunday and will miss at least one month of the regular season


New York Yankees hats The Yankees have lost outfielder Curtis Granderson until at least May after he was hit by Toronto’s J.A. Happ in the first inning of Sunday’s exhibition game. Granderson initially left the game with what was called a bruised forearm, but further examinations showed that the arm was fractured. Recovery time for such an injury is 10 weeks, which puts Granderson eligible to return from the disabled list on May 5 th.

Granderson led the team with 43 home runs last season and figured to be a big part of the Bronx Bombers’ offense this season. The Yankees will have to find a replacement for Granderson, who was expected to start in left field this year with the return of Brett Gardner to the line-up to play center. With Granderson out of the line-up, the Yankees will have just two players, Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano who hit more than 20 homers for the club last season.
