Yankees OF Granderson breaks arm, out 10 weeks

Cashman said he is not in favor of giving infielder Eduardo Nunez a look in left field.

Happ, coming back from foot surgery, went two scoreless innings, giving up three hits.

“The first inning, I was rushing a little bit, and not quite getting the extension I needed,” Happ said. “Going out for that second inning I felt much better. I was taking my body toward home instead of first there.”

Happ reached out to Granderson before the ourfielder left the stadium for X-rays.

“Definitely not throwing on purpose, he’s trying to work on coming inside,” Granderson said. “It’s a part of the game. Sometime you get hit. You just hope you get hit in a better spot.”

Projected as the team’s sixth starter, Happ had a 10-11 record with a 4.79 ERA in 24 starts and four relief appearances last season.

Yankees starter Adam Warren threw two hitless innings. The right-hander hit Brett Lawrie with a pitch in the second, which he said got away from him.

“Tried to go in with a fastball,” Warren said.

NOTES: One-time two-sport standout Drew Henson, who played quarterback at the University of Michigan and eight games with the Yankees, will be the new hitting coach for New York’s second team in the rookie-level Gulf Coast League. It’s his first pro coaching assignment. “I think he’ll be real good at it,” Yankees first base coach Mick Kelleher said. “Has a great mind. An analyzer.” Kelleher was New York’s roving minor league infield coach when Henson was in the minors. … Blue Jays LHP Brett Cecil allowed three hits over two scoreless innings.
