07:57 AM ET 04.15 | For now, Curtis Granderson is limited to the outfield, stuck shagging flies and throwing. [Granderson] still hasn't swung a bat in his rehab from a broken right forearm, and until that happens, he can't do more than guess about when he will be back on the field. ... "Swinging was something that could happen," Granderson said [Sunday] at Yankee Stadium before the series finale against the Orioles. "The timetable of when is still to be determined. After further consultation with the doctors and trainers, they decided to make sure I'm good throwing before I start to swing." Though there is hope Granderson could be with the team by May 1, neither he nor manager Joe Girardi is ready to put a date on anything.

Judging from the frenzied posting activity on this thread, it looks like no one cares.

Is just me or do a lot "star" players seem to be dealing with serious, or at the minimum nagging injuries, more than seems usual?

Probably just the fact that the inter webs gives you a front row seat - for the whole freaking league.

Great non-story. "He's still hurt. Can't swing the bat. Doesn't know when he'll be able to play." Wow! What insightful reporting. It's the damn Yankees, so some jerk thinks it's a story. Pathetic!

My ex-wife's return is up in the air as well, but it won't get a mention on Truth & Rumors (Man I'm getting a lot of mileage from this one lately).

In other news....26 year old former Yankees prospect Austin Jackson coming off a .300 BA and .856 OPS season in 2012 is crushing it so far in 2013, hitting .386 with a .435 OBP and OPS of .909 . Thank you Brian Cashman
