Granderson shows up in the Bronx

Sunday - 4/14/2013, 9:30pm  ET

NEW YORK (AP) -- Curtis Granderson is making the most of an off day in his rehabilitation from a broken right forearm.

The injured Yankees outfielder flew to New York and is planning to take students from a Brooklyn high school to a screening of the Jackie Robinson movie "42" on Monday. The school's athletic fields were damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

Granderson showed up in the Yankees clubhouse before Sunday night's game against the Baltimore Orioles. He did his rehabilitation regimen in the Bronx rather than in Tampa, Fla., where he's been working to return since he was hit by a pitch in his first spring training at-bat.

"Once the throwing is good to go, then we'll start swinging," Granderson said. "I'm just here for the day."
