Yanks’ Johnson has wrist surgery; Granderson improves

Yankees DH Nick Johnson had successful wrist surgery today, according to The Star Ledger in New Jersey.

Johnson, who is hitting just .167 with two homers and eight RBIs this season, isn’t expected to rejoin the Yankees’ lineup until at least mid-June.

In more encouraging injury news, center fielder Curtis Granderson (groin) shagged fly balls in the outfield without any pain earlier this week, according to the newspaper.

Granderson, who hasn’t played since May 1, is hitting .225 with two homers and seven RBIs this season. There is no official timetable for his return.
