Curtis Granderson led off Sunday's victory versus the Brewers with a solo home run, his only hit in five at-bats.

Granderson ripped a Wily Peralta offering to right field, giving the Mets a very early 1-0 lead. Four of Granderson's five home runs have come in the month of May as he has very rapidly improved his numbers following a slow start to the year. He carries a .248/.359/.403 triple-slash line with 13 RBI.

Curtis Granderson crushed his third home run of the season, going 2-for-5 overall in a win over the Phillies on Sunday.

Granderson gave the Mets a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning when he launched a Chad Billingsley offering off of an advertising hanging in front of the second deck in right field at Citizens Bank Park -- a no-doubter. The 34-year-old is slowly but surely picking up his numbers, now with three round-trippers, 10 RBI, and a .238/.352/.371 triple-slash line.

Though he has been drawing plenty of walks, Granderson otherwise hasn't done much at the plate this season, batting .239/.360/.359 with two home runs and eight RBI.

May 2 - 3:39 PM

Curtis Granderson led off Sunday night's loss against the Yankees by swatting his first home run of the season off Nathan Eovaldi.

It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. While he's only hitting .222 on the season, he now boasts a .364 on-base percentage and has done a nice job as a table setter atop the Mets lineup.
Apr 26 - 10:54 PM

Curtis Granderson is not in the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

He's just getting a breather with the Braves throwing lefty Eric Stults. John Mayberry has taken Granderson's position both in right field and in the leadoff spot. Daniel Murphy is also on the bench versus the southpaw, with Ruben Tejada handling second base.
Apr 22 - 3:13 PM

Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with four RBI as the Mets rattled off a ninth straight win Tuesday, besting the Braves 7-1.

Granderson delivered the big blow in the Mets' four-run fifth inning, plating two with a bases-loaded single. He singled in a run in the sixth inning and had an RBI double in the eighth as well. Hits have been hard to come by but Granderson has found ways to contribute atop the Mets' lineup, scoring eight runs while compiling a .196/.362/.217 line. His power disappearance is certainly concerning, though.

Curtis Granderson is at leadoff for the Mets in Monday's season-opener versus the Nationals.

There was talk this spring of Juan Lagares getting the leadoff nod, but he's batting sixth on Monday in the nation's capital.

Apr 6 - 11:52 AM

Curtis Granderson singled and went 1-for-2 in Saturday's spring tilt against the Rangers.

The veteran was plunked in the right knee on Thursday, but the injury was relatively minor and he appears ready for Opening Day. This spring, Granderson has been smacking the cover off the ball, slashing .435/.534/.717 with three home runs. He's looking to improve on a disappointing 2014 season in which he hit just .227/.326/.388. Granderson's 20 home runs last season represented his lowest healthy-season total since 2006.
Apr 4 - 5:15 PM

Curtis Granderson (knee) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Apr 3 - 4:56 PM

Curtis Granderson acknowledged Thursday that there is some swelling in his right knee, but he expects to be fine for the Mets' season-opener on Monday.

Granderson was lifted from Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals after taking a pitch off his knee. He was able to walk off the field under his own power. This looks to be a non-issue.
Apr 2 - 2:07 PM

Curtis Granderson was pulled from Thursday's Grapefruit League game after taking a pitch off his right knee.

Granderson jogged down to first base before getting pulled, so it doesn't seem like anything too serious. There should be an update out of Mets camp within the hour.
