The one thing the New York Yankees couldn't afford this spring was an injury, especially to one of the team's marquee players. But in the team's first televised game of spring training, that's exactly what happened, and the effects will be felt way into the regular season.
Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson broke his right forearm after getting hit by a pitch from Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ in the first inning Sunday afternoon. Granderson left the game in obvious pain, but the extent of the injury wasn't known until X-rays revealed the fracture. Granderson will be out until at least the first week of May, a month into the regular season.
