Matt Ehalt of ESPN New York caught up with Curtis Granderson at a charity event today and the Yankees outfielder said he’s aiming to come off the disabled list by the end of this month.
Granderson has been out since May 25 with a broken pinkie finger that was initially expected to keep him sidelined for at least 4-6 weeks. He’s already started to do most baseball activities, including “hitting in the cage recently and doing some stuff soft toss.”
This is the second major injury of the season for Granderson, who’s played a total of just eight games in between DL stints.
Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner and SS/CF Chris Taylor have been named co-MVPs of the NLCS, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.
Turner hit .333/.478/.667 with four singles, two home runs, and five walks across 23 plate appearances in the NLCS. He hit a walk-off three-run home run off of John Lackey in the ninth inning to win Game 2 for the Dodgers.
Taylor hit .316/.458/.789 with two singles, a double, a triple, two home runs, and five walks in 24 NLCS plate appearances. He hit a go-ahead solo home run in Game 1. He hit another go-ahead solo homer in Game 3 and later added an RBI triple.
