Giants manager Dave Roberts announced that Curtis Granderson and Enrique Hernandez will platoon for the remainder of the season.
It makes sense, as Granderson hasn't played like a full-time player since he came over to the Dodgers, and Hernandez has shown the ability to handle left-handed pitching. It remains to be seen whether or not this platoon will remain in the postseason, but for now, you shouldn't expect Granderson to get many at-bats against southpaws for the remainder of 2017.

Curtis Granderson is out of the startling lineup against the Giants on Wednesday.

Granderson has struggled mightily with the bat since coming over to the Dodgers with a .107 batting average, but the day off has more to do with Matt Moore being a lefty than anything else. Enrique Hernandez gets the start in left field, and is batting seventh.
Sep 13 - 6:47 PM

Curtis Granderson finished 0-for-3 with a walk on Wednesday, leaving him 1-for-19 in September.

What few hits Granderson has had for the Dodgers have been big, but he's now 6-for-60 with the team. That six includes four homers, and he has walked 10 times. Still, he's probably looking at less playing time until he heats up.
Sep 7 - 1:35 AM

Curtis Granderson had a homer and a bases-loaded walk Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Granderson didn't figure to play much against lefties for the Dodgers, but he was in there tonight versus Robbie Ray, albeit as the No. 8 hitter. The homer accounted for the Dodgers' lone run off Ray. He has four homers (among a total of five hits) in 37 at-bats for the Dodgers.

Curtis Granderson launched his 22nd homer Thursday in the Dodgers’ win over the Pirates.

He broke a 1-1 tie by taking Chad Kuhl deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning. Granderson also added three walks. He’s now homered in three of six games since joining the Dodgers on Saturday. That gives him nine round-trippers in 66 at-bats for the month of August.
Aug 24 - 7:47 PM

Curtis Granderson hit a grand slam in the Dodgers' comeback win over the Pirates on Monday.

Granderson's four-run shot drove Pirates starter Gerrit Cole from the game in the top of the seventh inning. The new Los Angeles outfielder also singled and drew a walk in the 12-inning victory, finishing 2-for-5 with one run scored and four RBI. He's rattled off two home runs, five RBI, and three runs scored through his first three games with Los Angeles.

Curtis Granderson hit his first homer as a member of the Dodgers in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

It was a solo shot in the top of the sixth inning off Tigers starter Justin Verlander. Granderson, acquired from the Mets on Saturday for minor league pitcher Jacob Rhame, should get regular starts in left field against right-handed pitching. He's up to 20 total home runs for the year.
Aug 20 - 3:48 PM

Curtis Granderson is starting in left field and batting fifth in his Dodgers' debut against the Tigers on Saturday.

Granderson was acquired from the Mets late on Friday and is already in Motown with his new club. He adds another potent left-handed bat to an already deep and supremely talented Dodgers' lineup.
Aug 19 - 12:53 PM

Dodgers acquired OF Curtis Granderson and cash considerations from the Mets for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

The trade would seem to be bad news for Joc Pederson, who has really struggled during the second half. Granderson, an impending free agent, has quietly been one of the NL's best hitters since getting off to a slow start in April. He should provide a boost against right-handed pitching for the World Series hopeful Dodgers. Granderson will finish his Mets tenure with a .784 OPS (115 OPS+) and 95 homers over 573 games.
Aug 19 - 12:23 AM

Curtis Granderson hit a grand slam in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

Mets fans had little to cheer about on this night, and most nights, but Granderson gave the remaining fans a treat when he cleared the wall in the ninth inning to cut the Yankees' lead to two. That would remain the difference, making the dong little more than a footnote of an otherwise forgettable game for the Queens club. Granderson also walked twice in the contest. The 36-year-old is hitting .228/.334/.481 with 19 homers, 52 RBI and 58 runs scored this season.
Aug 18 - 12:37 AM

Curtis Granderson hit his 18th home run of the season Monday night against the Yankees.

Granderson belted a solo shot off Yankees starter Luis Cessa in the top of the third inning, and Yoenis Cespedes repeated the act moments later. Granderson has been steadily productive since early May and Mike Puma of the New York Post reported Monday evening that waiver-trade interest in the 36-year-old outfielder "has picked up lately." We may see a move.
Aug 14 - 10:50 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that interest in Curtis Granderson "has picked up lately."

Marc Carig of Newsday reported Sunday that Granderson was drawing "little interest" on the trade market, but Puma is hearing that the tide is turning. It certainly make sense given that the veteran outfielder is batting .267/.386/.563 with 16 homers since May 1. He can help a contender, whether it's as a full- or part-timer.
Aug 14 - 4:51 PM

Curtis Granderson will serve as the designated hitter Monday against the Yankees.

Playing under American League rules will allow Juan Lagares to make a start in center field. Michael Conforto will slide over to right field.
Aug 14 - 3:42 PM

Marc Carig of Newsday writes that Curtis Granderson "continues to generate little interest" on the trade market.

It doesn't make much sense, as Granderson has quietly been one of the league's best hitters after getting off to a slow start. He owns a 147 wRC+ dating back to May 1, which ranks higher than the likes of Andrew McCutchen, Kris Bryant, Bryce Harper, and Freddie Freeman among many other impressive names. The 36-year-old has cleared revocable waivers, so he can be traded to any team. There's still a chance that a contender will come to their senses and get a deal done this month.

Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI in leading the Mets to a 6-2 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

We maintain that Granderson was the better acquisition for a contender than Jay Bruce, but there's still time to see if that will play out; he's cleared waivers and the Mets still could move him for a prospect and salary relief. Granderson is hitting .284/.409/.597 in 201 at-bats since May 15.
