New York • Curtis Granderson has rejoined the New York Yankees, 2 1-2 months after breaking an arm in his first at-bat of spring training.

Granderson was activated Tuesday by the Yankees, and in the lineup against Seattle batting fourth and playing right field. New York optioned left-hander Vidal Nuno to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre a day after he beat Cleveland in his first major league start.

The slugger, who led New York with 43 homers last season, broke his right forearm when he was hit by a pitch from Toronto's J.A. Happ on Feb. 24. The All-Star outfielder originally had hoped to be ready to play during the first week of May.

Granderson was 8 for 20 with one homer and three RBIs during a five-game rehabilitation assignment at Scranton.

Shortstop Derek Jeter (broken left ankle), third baseman Alex Rodriguez (left hip surgery), first baseman Mark Teixeira (torn tendon sheath in his right wrist ), corner infielder Kevin Youkilis (lumbar spine sprain), catcher Francisco Cervelli (broken right hand) and shortstop Eduardo Nunez (soreness on left side) remain on the DL.
