TAMPA, Fla. — Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson could resume throwing next week as part of his rehabilitation program for a broken right forearm.


Granderson said Saturday he will have follow-up X-rays Tuesday. He also hopes to be cleared to start swinging a fungo bat.


The slugger, who led New York with 43 homers last season, broke an arm when he was hit by a pitch from Toronto’s J.A. Happ in his first at-bat of spring training on Feb. 24. Granderson could rejoin the Yankees next month.


Derek Jeter, still recovering from left ankle surgery last October, did limited field work for the second consecutive day. The shortstop fielded 41 grounders hit directly at him near the left-field fence at a distance roughly equal of playing in front of the infield dirt. He also hit off a tee in a batting cage and played catch, including long toss.


There is no announced timetable for the return of the Yankees’ 38-year-old captain.
