GRANDERSON BACK ON THE DL: Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a broken pinky on his left hand.  Granderson was injured when he was hit by a Cesar Ramos pitch in the fifth inning Friday.  He missed nearly two months after being hit by a pitch in Spring Training, and had played in just eight games in his return.

Granderson is expected to miss another four weeks of action.

PRICE SAYS "NO IDEA" ON RETURN: Rays LHP David Price told me today he has "honestly no idea" as to how much more time he will miss with his tricep injury.

The left-hander said while he has done all his exercises to keep his arm in throwing motion shape, he has yet to play catch, which would be the first step back on his return.  Price said hopefully that would happen in the next couple of days.  He would then have to throw on flat ground, and then on the mound before getting back into any sort of game situation.
