Granderson appeared as a pinch hitter on Wednesday, leading many to believe that he was close to a return to the Mets lineup. It now sounds as though if things don't improve in the next couple of days that the veteran outfielder could be ticketed for the disabled list.

Date:

Curtis Granderson (calf) remained out of the Mets' lineup Thursday.

Granderson was able to pinch-hit Wednesday but apparently isn't ready to return to the lineup just yet. Brandon Nimmo is in right field and in the leadoff spot and Kelly Johnson is in left.

Curtis Granderson (calf) notched a pinch-hit single in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

Granderson was a late scratch from the lineup due to a minor calf ailment that forced him from Tuesday's game, but the fact that he was able to pinch-hit (and do so successfully) is a good sign. He could be back in the lineup as soon as Thursday.

Curtis Granderson (calf) has been scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

Granderson was initially penciled-in to bat leadoff against Max Scherzer on Wednesday, but after testing his strained right calf in pregame exercises, it looks like he will be riding the pine for the day. Alejandro De Aza will take over leadoff duties in his place. This is thought to be a minor injury, but the veteran outfielder might receive another game or two off just to be on the safe side.

Curtis Granderson (calf) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

Granderson was lifted from Tuesday's game after a rain delay due to what manager Terry Collins termed a "small" calf strain. This has been an injury that has nagged Granderson in recent days -- it also forced him out of the lineup on Sunday -- but he is penciled into Wednesday's lineup as the leadoff hitter.
Jun 29 - 4:27 PM

Curtis Granderson (calf) will take part in pregame exercises to determine whether he can play in Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

Granderson had trouble loosening up after a rain delay in Tuesday's game. He was pulled from the lineup following the delay and Mets manager Terry Collins later said that the veteran outfielder has a "small" calf strain. That right calf will be wrapped pregame as Granderson tests his availability for Wednesday. While he would be facing off with Max Scherzer should he be able to play, the Grandy Man is 8-for-24 (.333) with two homers and three doubles against the ace for his career.

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Curtis Granderson is dealing with a "small" calf strain.

Granderson was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Nationals after he had issues getting loose following a rain delay. This calf strain also kept him out of action on Sunday, but doesn't sound like a potential long-term injury. Unless the Mets indicate otherwise, Granderson should be considered day-to-day moving forward.

Curtis Granderson was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Nationals when he had difficulty getting loose after a long rain delay.

The veteran outfielder has logged a lot of innings this season, so manager Terry Collins opted to play things safe when Granderson tightened up. He should be back in the lineup in the next day or two.

Curtis Granderson is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. Brandon Nimmo is in right field for his major league debut Sunday, and Kelly Johnson is in left and in the leadoff spot. The Mets are also resting Asdrubal Cabrera and Travis d'Arnaud, as Matt Reynolds is at shortstop and Rene Rivera is catching.

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday’s loss to the Braves.

After a very slow start to the season, Granderson has begun to turn things on of late. He’s riding a streak of three straight multi-hit games and is hitting .400 (14-for-35) over his last eight games. This has helped pull his batting line up to .231/.320/.466 overall. The 35-year-old has managed 13 home runs, but all of them have come out of the leadoff spot and six of them have been leading off a game, so he has only amassed 21 RBI.
Jun 17 - 11:03 PM

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in a win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Granderson led off the game with a solo homer off Juan Nicasio, his sixth leadoff homer this season. The 35-year-old has 13 home runs, 21 RBI and 33 runs scored overall. An eight-game hitting streak, during which he has four multi-hit games, has Granderson's season line up to .226/.318/.461.

Curtis Granderson blasted a leadoff home run on Thursday, setting the tone for the Mets in a 5-2 victory over the Brewers in Milwaukee.

Granderson got himself into a good hitters count at 3-1 before crushing a Jimmy Nelson offering over the wall in right field. He also doubled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Even with the two-hit night though, Granderson is still hitting just .208/.306/.435 on the year with 11 homers and 18 RBI.
Jun 10 - 12:08 AM

Curtis Granderson is out of the Mets' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Pirates.

Alejandro De Aza will start in right field and bat leadoff versus Bucs right-hander Jameson Taillon, who's making his major league debut. This might be more than a simple day of rest for Granderson.
Jun 8 - 3:34 PM

Curtis Granderson went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Granderson actually had the Mets' only extra-base hit of the game, notching double No. 9 off Marlins ace Jose Fernandez. His other three at-bats resulted in sad walks to the bench. Sporting a .206/.303/.412 triple-slash with nine homers and 16 RBI over 204 at-bats, the veteran outfielder will probably crawl over the 20-homer mark this season, but his overall output is not encouraging through two months.
Jun 5 - 4:08 PM

Curtis Granderson launched a walk-off solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning in Friday’s 6-5 victory over the Dodgers.

Citi Field was down in the dumps after Jeurys Familia blew the lead in the top of the ninth, but Granderson took Pedro Baez deep to lead off the bottom of the frame to send the fans home happy. It was just the second walk-off homer of Granderson’s career and his first since way back on September 26, 2005. The 35-year-old is batting just .200 with a .300 on-base percentage this season, but he has at least managed nine home runs.
