Hughes, Jeter, Granderson, & Teixeira Injury Updates

The Yankees fell flat today both in the pitching department and on the offensive side of the ball so these little bits of good news are sights for sore eyes.

Mark Teixeira met with team doctors today and was given clearance to remove the brace that is on his injured wrist. He can still wear it during work outs and such but this seems like progress, however small.

Derek Jeter played catch in the outfield today and received treatment on his surgically repaired ankle. The team wants Jeter to sit for 10 days before playing in back to back nine innings games before being activated. Better to take it slow with the captain now and have him for 140 games or so at 100% then to rush things.

Phil Hughes pitched a extended spring training game today and got seven innings of work under his belt. He will pitch for the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders on Saturday and is scheduled to make his first start in the majors on April 11th.

Curtis Granderson shagged fly balls but has nothing new to report on his fractured forearm. He has not been cleared to throw and can only swing the bat with one hand. He is scheduled for X rays today so we will wait on those results.

Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
