Expectations for the Yankees have already been tempered by many, so this news certainly doesn’t help. They’ll be without Alex Rodriguez for possibly the entire season, and Curtis Granderson will miss the start of the season with a fractured forearm, according to ESPN.
Good thing opening day is more than a month away.
But let’s not overlook the fact that AL East will be a beast this year.
New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson suffered a fractured right forearm after being hit by a pitch in his first at-bat in a spring training game and will be out until at least the first week of May.
Granderson was hit by a 2-2 pitch from J.A. Happ and left the game in obvious pain. Originally, the injury was announced as a bruised forearm but he was taken to a local hospital for X-rays, which revealed the fracture.
