Curtis Granderson returned to the lineup with a bang last night, reaching base three times thanks to a walk, a double, and a hit by pitch. Alas, he won’t be in the lineup this afternoon as the team coddles in him back from the groin injury. It doesn’t hurt that the Indians are throwing a lefty out there today, so if you’re going to give Grandy a day off, might as well be on a day a southpaw’s starting. Here’s the starting nine…
And on the mound, C.C. Sabathia.
First pitch is set for 1:05pm ET, and can be seen on YES.
