Yankees | Curtis Granderson in cleanup spot, LF

New York Yankees OF Curtis Granderson (forearm) is making his season debut batting cleanup and starting in left field Tuesday, May 14. The team has decided that they are better defensively with OF Brett Gardner in center field. OFs Vernon Wells and Ichiro Suzuki are both expected to continue seeing playing time with Granderson back. Wells is the designated hitter Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: The biggest loser in this scenario is probably Travis Hafner. His limited positional eligibility also hurts his value in deep mixed leagues, too. Wells and Suzuki won't play as much as they were, but they should continue to see enough at-bats to remain valuable in cavernous mixed leagues.
