TAMPA, Fla. — Curtis Granderson jogged to first base after being hit on his right forearm as if it was a minor annoyance. Back at the ballpark in a brace a couple of hours later, it was clear the New York Yankees had a pretty big power problem on their hands.

In his first at-bat of spring training, the slugger broke his arm when he hit by a pitch from Toronto’s J.A. Happ on Sunday. Granderson, who hit a team-high 43 home runs last year, could be out 10 weeks and miss about a month of the regular season.

The Yankees, who were beat 2-0 by a Blue Jays’ split squad, first called it a bruise but X-rays revealed the break.
