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.
