It’s not a good start to the season for New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Grandeson. In what was thought to be a minor bruise on his arm turned out to be a major break when he was hit by a pitch from Toronto’s J.A. Happ in the bottom of the first inning Sunday. Granderson is expected to be out until the first week of May, which means he’ll miss the first month of the regular season.

While this isn’t the best way to start, the good news is that he has enough time to heal and get back in the game.

”Five pitches in we got a little setback,” Granderson said. ”Now we rest, recovery, get it back, and get ready to play whenever that day comes…Mentally, you understand this is part of it, but at the same time now there’s not much I can do about it except do the best things I can to not make it worse,” Granderson said. ”Keep myself ready to go.”

With the length of the MLB seaon, Granderson has plenty of time to heal and get back to help the team, but the Yankees need him. They¬†are already without Nick Swisher due to free agency and Alex Rodriguez isn’t expected to return until around the All-Star break.

We’re hoping our hottie returns quickly.
