New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson was scratched from Tuesday’s start with right elbow soreness, according to MLB.com.

"He reported that his elbow is a little sore," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. "We'll do a precautionary MRI to make sure it's nothing significant. We don't believe it is. Better safe than sorry."

Cashman said his level of concern was a “two or less” on a scale of one to 10, according to MLB.com. Granderson, 31, hit .262 with 41 home runs and 119 RBIs and scored a league-high 136 runs last season for New York.
