New York Yankee Curtis Granderson predicts July return

Published Add your comment

New York Yankees star Curtis Granderson is hopeful of a July return to the field after recovering from a broken finger.

The outfielder confirmed at his Grand Kids Foundation luncheon in Manhattan on Monday that he had stepped up his recovery recently and believes he can be playing again this month.

Granderson has not suffered any setbacks and revealed he has been working on rebuilding his strength before getting back to any real hitting, as he was forced to wait for over a month before he could start any discernible rehab.

However, he revealed a return to the field was not far off and he was eager to be able to get his season going, having only made eight appearances this season.

“We're getting close. I started hitting in the cage recently and doing some soft toss," he is quoted as saying by ESPN.

"I have been throwing. I've been running. I've been doing all my defence. Just got to get the baseball stuff underneath me in terms of hitting, getting on the field and playing and then get back up here to York."

Granderson fractured the little finger on his left hand after being hit by a pitch from Cesar Ramos of the Tampa Bay Rays.

It was more bad luck for the 32-year-old, as that was only his eighth game after a 38-game absence due to a broken arm, which also sustained from being hit by a pitch.
