DETROIT -- Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson told the Associated Press he will have follow-up X-rays on his fractured right forearm on Tuesday, and could be cleared to resume throwing and swinging a fungo bat sometime next week.

Granderson has been sidelined since suffering the broken arm after being hit by a pitch from J.A. Happ in his first spring training at-bat on Feb. 24. The injury has an 8-10 week healing time, and Granderson is expected to return to the Yankees in early May.

Granderson has been running and taking fly balls at the Yankees' minor league complex in Tampa, but his forearm, which was broken just above the wrist, is still in a brace and likely will be until after the X-rays.
