Curtis Granderson stepped to the plate for his at bat of the spring on Sunday. Five pitches later was hit with a fastball, breaking his arm, likely keeping the Yankees center fielder out of action for ten weeks, according to yankees.com.

“My body was feeling good, my arm was feeling good, ready to go,” Granderson said. “Five pitches in, we’ve got a little setback. It could be worse, but now we rest, recover, get it back and get ready to play whenever that day comes.”

The pitch came Toronto’s J.A. Happ in the first inning of New York’s second game of Grapefruit League action. The Yanks ended up losing 2-0 (if that even matters…it’s spring-training).

Granderson hit just .232, but led the team with in homers (43) and RBI’s (106).
