Curtis Granderson injury: Yankees OF eyeing May return

USA TODAY Sports

Yankees OF Curtis Granderson is confident that he'll rejoin the team at some point in May.

New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson has shed the cast that was protecting his broken forearm, and he told reporters -- including Mark Feinsand of The New York Daily News -- that he's planning on returning sometime in May.

Granderson added that "X-rays have all been good," while he's feeling good in general. He said that the Yankees should be able to put together a clearer time frame for return once he begins playing and registering at-bats.

Granderson suffered his broken forearm early in spring training when he was hit by a pitch. He's progressed to the point where he's hitting off a tee and taking soft toss.

Despite the absence of Granderson and several other injured regulars -- including Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez -- the Yankees' offense has held things together. The team as a whole is performing well, but specifically Vernon Wells has helped New York fill in for Granderson.
