Granderson Hit By Pitch, Broken Bone, DL...Deja Vu All Over Again

Curtis Granderson seemed to finally be getting his stroke back after missing a month and a half with a broken forearm. A three-hit game this past Wednesday night in Baltimore included a double and a home run, and was one of the few bright spots in a divisional loss. Now the Yankees will need other players to pick up the slack again as Granderson is headed to the DL for the second time this season with a broken bone.

This time around it was a pitch by Tampa Bay's Cesar Ramos that broke the knuckle on Granderson' left pinky finger. (Ramos also hit Robinson Cano with the bases loaded to force in a run.)

 Here we go again.

Granderson missed 38 games due to the broken arm he received in the very first Spring Training game after Toronto's J.A. Happ hit him. The 32-year old is set to be a free agent after the season, but you have to wonder where his value will be at after he misses at least one quarter of the season.
