There was some hope that New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson would be able to return before the 2013 MLB All-Star game, but that hope appears to be fading fast.
Speaking to New York Yankees skipper Joe Girardi, Andy McCullough, through Girardi, says Granderson will most likely be out through the break.
Per the Newark Star Ledger:
Girardi cannot say if either Cervelli or Curtis Granderson (broken finger) would return before next month’s All-Star Break.
“I think it’s hard to say,” he said. “It depends on how their rehab goes. Obviously, Cervi’s ahead of Granderson, and he’s played a lot more than Grandy has, too. So I would expect him back sooner than Grandy. It’s hard to say.”
Granderson is of course out with a fractured knuckle on his pinkie finger, an injury he sustained just days after returning from a broken forearm suffered in Spring Training.
The Illinois native has played in a grand total of 8 games this season.
