Curtis Granderson's Injury Plagues Yankees Power Ideas
It's suppose to be a warm-up, a time for the off-season drought to come to an end. Spring Training has finally started, warming the hearts of all baseball fans across the Nation ... but for the Yankees, their hearts just sank.
Curtis Granderson, Yankees centerfielder, has been officially put on the shelf for more than 10-weeks after a fastball caught his forearm during an exhibition game earlier today against the Toronto Blue Jays.
It's an injury that will set aside any type of player, but what makes it worse is the ideas the Yankees and Granderson were putting together before the injury.
