Curtis Granderson injury: After throwing, next step is swinging

Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson is getting closer to returning.

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson started throwing today, and he will continue on his rehab plan.

The next part of the plan is to try swinging, which is considered to be a big step, reports Andy McCullough of The Star-Ledger.

This news would be excellent for the Yankees, as they could surely use their slugging center-fielder back soon. They recently acquired Vernon Wells to take his place, but Granderson would be a big boost to the team.

With the team also receiving good news about Derek Jeter, today is a good day for Yankees injury news. If him and Granderson can return to the team soon, they will probably be out of range for any kind of catastrophic season.

Everyone around the team is saying that the throwing sessions went well, so he could start swinging soon.
