Tigers' Granderson cleared to start working out after breaking hand
"It's still broke," Granderson told the Detroit Free Press. "It's healing. It's not healed. That's the thing I still have to keep in mind.
"And I know it's going to hurt. It's just a matter of how much."
Granderson broke a bone in his right hand when he was hit by Philadelphia's Travis Blackley on March 22.
Detroit, off to an 0-6 start, got two players back for Sunday night's game against the Chicago, which the White Sox won 13-2. Designated hitter Gary Sheffield was in the lineup for the first time since tearing a finger tendon on Thursday, and third baseman Miguel Cabrera returned after straining a quadriceps on Wednesday.
Second baseman Placido Polanco, however, was not in the starting lineup because of a sore back.
