Curtis Granderson Begins Rehab Assignment Thursday

New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson suffered a broken right forearm during a Grapefruit League game in late-February. He has been working hard to get back on the field and we could be very close to seeing Granderson rocking the pinstripes again. Granderson could be back in the Yankees active lineup for next Monday. 

Per Donnie Collins of the Scranton Times-Tribune:

He’s getting closer to a return to the big leagues.

Thursday night, Curtis Granderson will show area fans how close.

The Yankees’ All-Star center fielder will open a major league rehab assignment with the RailRiders Thursday against Indianapolis, a source within the organization confirmed to The Times-Tribune.

Granderson will spend the weekend with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Once his rehab assignment is complete, Granderson will be able to return to the big leagues. The Yankees will be hoping to get the same kind of production from Granderson that they received a season ago when he had 43 home runs, 10 steals and 106 RBI.
