Bad Break For Yanks

New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson is going to be out up to 10 weeks with a broken right forearm.

The slugger was hit by a pitch from Toronto’s J.A. Happ in the bottom of the first inning Sunday. The Yankees initially called it bruise but X-rays revealed the break.

The blow is a major one for the Yankees, who are already without third baseman Alex Rodriguez until at least the All-Star break.

Granderson led New York with 43 homers last season.

In other spring training news:

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says Derek Jeter is about two weeks away from playing in spring training games for the first time since breaking his ankle last fall. The 38-year-old shortstop practiced on-field running and agility drills for the second straight day Sunday and expects to be ready for opening day April 1 against Boston.
