“He’s a little beat up,” Joe Girardi said. “He hit a ball off his foot yesterday, had the calf today, so I’ll check with him (tonight).”
Granderson has become so productive that he might be the most difficult person to take out of the Yankees lineup, but in the past two days he has:
• Been hit by a pitch in the left foot, leading him to ice and wrap his foot that night.
• Fouled a ball off his right calf, hitting a spot very close to where he was hit at home against the Twins.
• Crashed into the wall in center field, resulting in only a small scratch from where he landed on the ground.
• Been hit by a pitch in the upper back, leading to soreness that tightened up before the end of the game.
“I don’t know, we’ll see,” Granderson said. “For the most part I think I’ll be alright. We’ll see how things go waking up in the morning, but it should be fine. Should be ready to go.”
