Curtis Granderson will step into the batter’s box Friday night against David Price marking an anniversary more significant than many other milestones.

It will be exactly one year ago that he returned to the lineup after working with hitting coach Kevin Long on fixing the holes in his swing evident by his .240 average his first year as a Yankee.

“I feel like he made some changes,” Granderson said. “I feel confidencewise the same, aggressivewise the same.”

The changes paid off in the final six weeks last year when he hit 14 home runs in his final 165 at-bats and Granderson has kept it going this year.

Granderson has become an MVP candidate after hitting another home run in Thursday’s 6-5 win over the Angels.

“When you look at his numbers, you say he’s a home run hitter,” manager Joe Girardi said. “But he has been huge in our lineup and continued that today.”
