The slow and steady work back from the disabled list continues for the Yankees' gaggle of walking wound. Chad Jennings of LoHud had the latest on Derek Jeter and Curtis Granderson's progress yesterday afternoon:
- Jeter returned to running the bases yesterday, not at full speed of course, and also hit in the cage and took some groundballs. That's positive progress from where he was last week, but it's still coming at a snail's pace. I'm putting my money on sometime in the fourth week of May.
- Granderson, who has spent the last week or so shagging flies, was cleared to begin swinging a bat this week and he'll do so in a pool to lessen the stress on his forearm. Still no definite timetable for C-Grand either, but mid-to-late May looks like a fair bet right now.
