Diaz yanked into action
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (2/24/2013) After one plate appearance Sunday that didn't even involve them, Yankees outfielders Matt Diaz and Juan Rivera went from vying for a bench spot to possible opening day starter. Both veterans are expected to earn more playing time this spring after starting left fielder Curtis Granderson suffered a broken right forearm during New York's Grapefruit League game against Toronto and will be sidelined the next 10 weeks.
