Curtis Granderson Out At Least Four Weeks

Curtis Granderson was injured on the first pitch of Spring Training, with a broken forearm.  And now, after sitting for weeks, is out again, this time getting hit by a pitch on his left hand  in the fifth inning and breaking his pinkie in Tampa Bay on Friday, May 24.What does this mean for the Yankees?  Not much.  Sure, Granderson was a triple away from the cycle in Baltimore, but really Granderson brings only pull hitting and regressing outfield play.  What does he do that one of the other baseball nomads on this team can’t?  Ichiro isn’t getting on base a lot, but is there really a clear difference here between the two?  Not really.  And Ichiro is a better situational hitter, fielder and bunter and has a better arm.

Curtis Granderson is a good guy, so you feel for him.  But this isn’t losing Mariano Rivera or Robinson Cano.  The Yanks went 24-14 without him during the first part of the season.  That’s all you need to know.
