Curtis Granderson will run and stretch with the Yankees on Tuesday. His Broken forearm is feeling much better.  Recent X-rays taken show it is healing, he will have another one this week.

It's realistic to believe that if Granderson returns from this injury at some point in May (like he's supposed to based on his current rate of recovery) that he'll still give you 25+ HRs and 70+ RBIs on the season. So while I wouldn't rush out to draft him early, I wouldn't sleep on him too much, because once he's back in the lineup he'll be giving you top 60 overall production. Add in the fact that he'll be there when you need him most... playoff time.. and Granderson becomes an appealing low-cost power option. Especially for those of you in Roto leagues, where the only thing that matters is totals at the end of the season...

This is the first of many X-rays, so fantasy owners should not put too much stock into this update from the Yankees. Granderson should be back at some point in late May, which has significantly lowered his fantasy value. Those who are willing to wait for his return should have plenty of depth at the position to cover all bases. Currently, Granderson has an average draft position of 107.21 at Mock Draft Central, which ranks him around the likes of Nick Swisher, Angel Pagan and Shane Victorino.
