Curtis Granderson has surgery

USA TODAY Sports

Apparently Curtis Granderson had surgery today to repair his broken pinky knuckle and allow the bone to heal correctly. It is the same surgery that Francisco Cervelli needed in order to pin the broken bone in place. Thankfully, this will not change the recovery time for his injury, which is estimated to be around one month.

Granderson had only been back for little over a week before he was hit in the hand by the Rays' Cesar Ramos. In his brief time with the team, he had a .250/.323/.393 batting line with one home run and one stolen base. This was probably the injury return the Yankees needed most with Ichiro Suzuki batting .245/.283/.337 on the season and Vernon Wells hitting .115/.115/.115 in the last week. Granderson will still be back before the All-Star break, but he may need to rehab again before returning to the team. This is probably the worst walk year ever.
