Curtis Granderson (oblique) said he feels that he will be “very close to it, if not” 100 percent for Opening Day. He has been cleared to play in a minor league game tomorrow and after that he will stay behind in Tampa to play in another on Wednesday before flying back to New York that night. Barring any setbacks he will be patrolling center field on Opening Day…which is a relief because who wanted to see Andruw Jones play the outfield?
