Per LoHud, the MRI results on Curtis Granderson have revealed a Grade II strain, and the Yanks’ centerfielder will be placed on the disabled list. Mark Melancon, called up to help out the depleted bullpen, will take his place on the roster for now. Will Carroll’s initial prognosis is two-to-four weeks of missed time based on the severity of the strain, and the Yanks plan to shift Brett Gardner to center field while using Marcus Thames and Randy Winn in left. The team will probably call up another outfielder next week.
