Granderson and Nix play in first rehab game with High-A Tampa


In his first minor league rehab game with High-A Tampa, Curtis Granderson went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout. He lined out to the second baseman as well. Granderson played five innings in left field and had to run down some fly balls, but no big deal. It’s a hand injury, so getting comfortable at the plate is the important thing. He is expected to remain with Tampa through the weekend.

In the same game, Jayson Nix went 0-for-2 with a walk and two fly outs (center and left). He played five innings at third base and didn’t have to make a single play. Nix and his bad hamstring did have to run the bases once, including taking second base on a wild pitch and scoring from second on an error. No idea what the plan is for him, but I assume Nix will be here a few days as well.

    It’ll be great to get Granderson back. Combined with Soriano, it’ll at least SEEM like we have a major league outfield and DH, even if it takes a while for him to get his homerun swing back.

    Nix, on the other hand…well, I’d rather see Adams and Nunez play than Nix, let alone Jeter and Arod. He’s the one injured guy this year that has been a meh, doesn’t really matter when he gets back. I guess Cruz too.

    When Grandy comes back, is that the end for Hafner?

  3. Eddard says:

    Nuney ain’t going nowhere. I would send Nix right to AAA and not bring him back to the MLB club.

    Hafner has gotta go. I’d even cut him sooner, when Soriano joins the club. Wells is hitting better than Hafner right now so he can DH some, Soriano some. Jeter will need to DH as well. Hell, even Romine is hitting better than Hafner.

    Still only three games out of the WC. These guys deserve a fucking medal, and a rest. Can’t wait to see Curtis back.

      Gotta hope the pitching holds (and CC rebounds) if they can get those bats back and going they could go on a tear
