Update: Curtis Granderson day-to-day with “mild tendinitis” in hamstring

Game 132: It Ain't Easy
Astros claim Brandon Laird off waivers

4:22pm: Granderson has been “mild diagnosis” with tendinitis and there is no further damage. No strain, no tear, nothing like that. Joe Girardi said Granderson could play as soon as tomorrow, but I’m guessing he’ll get a day or two off. Especially with three games on the turf coming up, he might just DH instead. Glad it’s nothing more serious.

2:23pm: The Yankees announced that Granderson left the game with a tight right hamstring. He’ll head for an MRI later today. Either way, they can’t afford to lose another bat to injury.

1:50pm: Curtis Granderson left this afternoon’s game for an unknown reason after two innings. Replays showed him grimacing just a bit during his at-bat before talking with Joe Girardi and trainer Steve Donohue between innings. No idea what’s up, so stay tuned.

    Fuck me sideways.

  • Bunt Gardner

    Did it appear to be arm, leg, or something else?

    • Joey H.

      My money is on his arm, back, or maybe even an oblique.

      • Bunt Gardner

        Hope it’s not an oblique…seems like those things take forever to heal.

    OH GOD

  • paul a

    Great, this is all we need.This team is getting really hard to watch. They seem so lackadsical, like they’re waiting for something to happen instead of making something happen. Maybe Joe G should stop yelling at hecklers and start yelling at some of his players. This team needs a serious wake up call NOW!

    • Uncle Buck

      Hopefully blowing a 9 game lead will be the wake up call but I doubt it

    • pat v

      I know right i am so pissed about this crap i wiah george was still alive because he would wake this club up and put us on the right track

      • pat v

  • Widget

    Not like they can’t replace his 0-4 with 3 strikeouts performances.

    • http://fendersonandhampton.com Cuso

      You will notice him missing in CF, be assured of that.

      You will also notice that Cano will get even fewer pitches to hit, if that’s possible

      • Ted Nelson

        Granderson hasn’t played well in the field this year. Dickerson or Ichiro might be an upgrade.

  • Frank

    I bet it’s an oblique which translates to the DL

  • Steve

    Tight right hamstring!

  • Nice Scheister

    F*ck me in the goat ass.

  • Edmond

    Call this a crazy idea, but I finally figured out why the team is losing! They are all rebelling against management! It all started with the Suzuki deal, but it seems that there is some internal fighting going on we aren’t privy to! Could this injuries be part of that scheme? I haven’t heard of so many players having hamstring injuries and going in a slump at the same time!

    • FIPster Doofus

      Sounds plausible.

    • The Tenth Inning Stretch

      Yup. Crazy idea.

    • Squints

      Why would they be mad about the Suzuki deal?

    Fuck me with a stick. Team’s fucking boned.

  • Dan Gold

    Cut out the gay references

  • BigBlueAL

    Tendinitis in a hamstring??

  • http://www.yankeeanalysts.com Mike E

    Girardi said that a timetable depends on how Granderson feels. He said it’s possible he plays tomorrow.

  • River Ave Bipolar Disorder

    This is like a game thread, only shorter.

  • http://thecarsboneblog.tumblr.com Raul Ibanez AKA Tom Marvolo Riddle

    So our line up during possibly the biggest stretch of the season is going to be:
    Jeter SS
    Swisher RF
    Cano 2nd
    Jones DH
    Chavez 3B
    Pearce 1B
    Ibanez LF
    Martin C
    Suzuki CF

    • Get Phelps Up

      Ibanez DH and Dickerson LF. That’s probably only for tomorrow though. hopefully Grandy can at least DH against the Rays.

    I never heard of hamstring tendonitis but @ http://www.physioadvisor.com.au/9704850/hamstring-tendonitis-hamstring-injuries-physio.htm
    they say it’s more like “over-use” of the hamstring which I guess makes sense since he almost never has a day off.

  • Marcy

    On a separate note – does anyone else feel like we’re being force-fed Nunez? I hope this is a “show-me” thing and they trade him for a good shortstop but it doesn’t look that way.
    Soon we’ll be playing how many errors can a SS have in a game now that the pies are gone and the untuck (pls G-d) will be gone-

    Sorry, sorry – I’m just going to be happy and root for the U.

    • River Ave Bipolar Disorder

      I don’t. He’s a September call-up playing his 21st game in the bigs–how is that “being force-fed?”

      By the way, after those 21 games he’s 4th on the team in SBs. If Andruw Jones doesn’t pow-wow soon with his moms or granny or whatever hitting coach he uses, I’d rather see Nunez DH against lefties.

    • FIPster Doofus

      I was actually happy to see Nunez back today. He’s a decent hitter relative to a lot of schlubs currently in the lineup.

  • sevrox

    Dickerson becomes an important part. Rather see him out there than Jones at this point.

    • Rich in NJ

      Or even Nunez over Jones. The kid can hit LH pitching.

    • Ted Nelson

      I would bet on Jones turning it around at some point. If not this season, next. You’re still dealing with like two months worth of PAs for his season to date.

      • Kosmo

        right Ted ! like who gives a shit about next season. 4 weeks left in this season and he still can´t hit LHP, which is why NY resigned him. He should have been dfa´d weeks ago.

      • FIPster Doofus

        Jones won’t even be on the Yankees next season, so it won’t do them any good if he turns it around then.

  • Bubba

    I love Nunez, no one diss him! He is what the yanks need. Put him in RF
