The New York Yankees received good news from center fielder Curtis Granderson and first basemen Mark Teixeira on Thursday and the reports led to the speculation that the team is getting closer to having two big bats return to the line up.

For the first time since suffering a broken forearm, Granderson was able to throw. The next step will be to begin swinging a bat in minor league rehab. He announced the news on his Twitter account today.

Last season, Granderson totaled 43 home runs and 106 RBI. His return to the line up will be huge for the team’s offense. Granderson is set to become a free agent after this season.

As for Teixeira, he hopes to be cleared to start swinging a bat on Friday, according to the Associated Press.

Teixeira has been sidelined with a partially torn tendon sheath in his right wrist, but the 33-year-old hopes to return to the Yankees in early May.
