Curtis Granderson to join Triple-A Scranton tomorrow

By

Via Donnie Collins: Curtis Granderson will join Triple-A Scranton tomorrow, officially starting his 20-day rehab stint. He’s expected to play four or five games with the team. The 32-year-old slugger hit a homer and played all three outfield positions during an Extended Spring Training game today. Barring any setbacks, it sounds like Granderson could join the Yankees within a week.

    Holy cow. Reinforcements. Youk should be coming back soon as well, yes?

    Praise God. We’ll actually have a lineup again.

    About f’ing time!

    Although Teix (or actually Jete) would be our first choice to return, but beggers can’t be choosers.

    Give us a healthy full productive versions of the lineup that includes Arod, Jete, Teix, Gazoo, and Pineda (sorry Nova) and we run this SOB all the way to 28.

    Romine playing tonight and batting 9th with phelps batting 8th?
    Did romine take a shit on girardi’s desk or what?
    Phelps in front of him wow what a huge dis.

    • CS Yankee says:

      Yes, because a kid batting .313 in AAA is far worse than the sneak attack of Phelps who likely last batted against live pitching in HS.

      Lets use Pronk again in the 8th against the lefty.

    • Dc says:

      Not a dis. It’s fairly common for NL managers to occasionally put the pitcher 8th.

      • Pasta says:

        If they can handle a bat. Has phelps ever even bunted in the bigs. Hes not pettitte or sabbathia.

        • Dc says:

          The theory is that by batting the pitcher in the number eight slot then the number nine hitter has a better chance of getting on base and being driven in by the number two to four hitter.

    Gardner
    Ichiro
    Cano
    Youk
    Granderson
    Hafner
    Kyle
    Stewart/Romine
    Nunez

    All of a sudden, the lineup will start to look pretty decent again!
