New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson will miss 10 weeks of action with a fractured right forearm, according to a tweet from the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand. Granderson suffered the injury in Sunday's Spring Training game against the Toronto Blue Jays when he was hit by a pitch from J.A. Happ.

Granderson is coming off his second consecutive All-Star season in which he hit .232 with 106 RBIs.
