Grandy returns, but Yanks have eye on injury
ST. PETERSBURG -- Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson returned to the club's starting lineup on Tuesday after missing two starts with tendinitis in his right hamstring.

Granderson was forced out of Saturday's game against the Orioles after feeling the hamstring bother him during an at-bat. An MRI exam taken in New York revealed no strain or tear.

"I think he's pain-free, but I still think you have to keep an eye on him," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "I'll probably check with him a couple of times during the game to see if he's OK."

Granderson entered play on Tuesday batting .234 with a team-leading 34 home runs and 79 RBIs.
