Yankees | Curtis Granderson close to returning

New York Yankees OF Curtis Granderson (forearm) has had at least one hit in four of his previous rehab games, including three hits Sunday, May 12, and he's batting .412 with a home run for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He could come off the disabled list Tuesday, May 14, barring any setbacks. "I've always said, 'when Grandy feels that he's ready, then come on,' said manager Joe Girardi. "We want him back in our lineup and if he feels that he's ready to go, he's ready to go. Whenever the conversation takes place, we're open arms."

Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Granderson returning tomorrow after the club optioned Brennan Boesch to the minors. It's unclear which outfield position Granderson will play, but all that matters is that he'll be in the lineup on a regular basis. Finding PT for Vernon Wells might be tougher, and he may be involved in an outfield platoon with Ichiro Suzuki, which will limit both players' value in mixed universes.
