Curtis Granderson put up his first homer and RBIs of the season, slamming a two-run shot to right in the first off Jake Arrieta. Granderson has removed the goose eggs from his line.
Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano still have zero homers and zero RBIs. We know Cano is going to be fine. A-Rod might be, but he looks a little less dynamic, less powerful, at least so far. That is a hard statement to quantify, though, he just appears as if he is not hitting the ball as hard, when he does hit it.
A scout told me A-Rod will be fine. He just needs to find his timing. .
By the way, it is 2-0 Yankees after one. Before Granderson's homer, Derek Jeter hit a double to lift his average above .400 again.
