TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 24 (UPI) -- New York Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson broke his right forearm when hit by a pitch Sunday in a spring training game and will be out 10 weeks.

Granderson was taking his first at-bat of the preseason when he was drilled on the forearm by Toronto Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ.

Initially diagnosed with a bruise, the outfielder was found to have suffered a fracture after being taken to a local hospital for X-rays.

The 31-year-old slugger, who belted 43 homers and drove in 106 runs last season, is slated to be part of a Yankees outfield this year that also includes Brett Gardner and Ichiro Suzuki.
