Yankees lose Granderson to injury for 10 weeks; hit by pitch in exhibition game

The New York Yankees knew this past offseason that they would be starting the season without All-Star slugging third baseman Alex Rodriguez due to hip surgery until at least the All-Star break in July.

Today, they know that they’ll be without speedy centerfielder Curtis Granderson for 10 weeks due to an injury suffered in an exhibition game on Sunday.

The 31-year-old Granderson diagnosis is that he’ll be out until May after suffering a broken right forearm.

Granderson, who belted 43 homers last season, was injured when he was hit by a pitch from Toronto’s J.A. Happ in the first inning on Sunday in his first at-bat of spring training, five pitches into the game.

Granderson has been voted one of the friendliest players in the Major Leagues, according to a poll conducted by Sports Illustrated to 290 players.

It was not long ago this current NBA season that the New York Knicks had tried out three point guards before settling on Jeremy Lin, who had been cut by Golden State and Houston.

He became an instant world-wide star in the NBA with back-to-back Sports Illustrated covers but now his season has ended.

The 23-year-old Lin will miss the rest of the regular season due to knee surgery that will keep him out of action six weeks. If the Knicks make it to the playoffs, he might be able to comeback in the Eastern Conference finals.

Lin had an MRI recently that showed a small, chronic meniscus tear.

Lin was having a great season for a player who had bounced around for the first few weeks at the start. He averaged 14.1 points, 6.1 assists.

Lin became the first American-born player of Taiwanese or Chinese descent to play in the NBA, and took the Knicks on a seven-game winning streak which was surprising with a team that has Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudamire as its star players.

Angels long-time setup man Shields retires

Scot Shields retired recently from Major League Baseball.

Shields had a 10-year career with the Los Angeles Angels where he was primarily the setup man during the team’s dominant years in the American League West.

Shields who is 35, was a free agent after two injury-plagued seasons. He is only the third player who has retired from the Angels after playing his entire career with the team.

A popular teammate, Shields was limited to 63 games the past two years; 20 games in 2009 and 43 in 2010.

A 38th round draft pick in 1997, Shields came into his own in the Angels bullpen in 2002, when they won the only world championship in franchise history.

He was a starting pitcher in 2003 but went back to the bullpen full time in 2004.

Shields started off being the setup man for closer Troy Percival and then later for Francisco Rodriguez as the LA Angels won five of six AL West titles.

He was selected “setup man of the decade” by Sports Illustrated for 2000-2009.

In 2004, Shields and Rodriguez became the first pair of relievers since 1997 to achieve the feat of striking out more than 100 batters.
