Over the weekend, the New York Yankees’ general manager said that Curtis Granderson will likely be back in early August. The outfielder is hoping for an earlier return than that.
Rotoworld details what Granderson has been doing as of late, but notes that a minor league rehab assignment will need to happen very soon.
Yankees GM Brian Cashman said over the weekend that early August was likely, but Granderson hopes to make it back sooner. Sidelined since May 24 with a broken left pinkie, the 32-year-old outfielder has begun hitting in the cage and taking soft tosses. It’s not clear when he’ll begin a minor league rehab assignment, but he’ll have to make quick progress in order to meet his goal.
Granderson went on the 60-day disabled list after suffering his broken pinkie finger. The left fielder has played just eight games this season, going 7-28 at the plate and hit in just three different games. He had two three-hit games, one against the Seattle Mariners on May 16th and against the Baltimore Orioles on May 22nd.
