Curtis Granderson paced the Mets with three hits in Wednesday’s loss to the Dodgers.

Granderson greeted the Dodgers by crushing a solo blast off left-hander Rich Hill in the game’s first at-bat. He also singled in the third before capping his night with an RBI double in the ninth inning to finish a triple shy of the cycle. Wednesday was only Granderson’s second three-hit game of 2017. For the season he’s batting just .220 with eight homers, 20 RBI and three steals.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that Curtis Granderson will be the team's fourth outfielder when everyone is healthy.

Granderson has batted .270/.380/.516 with six home runs since May 1, but his awful April is weighing him down and Jay Bruce has heated back up in June. With the Mets looking unlikely to contend, it wouldn't be a surprise to see them trade impending free agents Bruce and/or Lucas Duda, so Granderson might have an everyday role again before long. Of course, he's an impending free agent himself and could conceivably be dealt.

Curtis Granderson hit a solo home run and scored three times during a 9-4 victory over the Cubs on Wednesday.

He swatted the tater off Cubs relief ace Carl Edwards Jr. in the eighth inning. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk and scored each time he reached base in the ballgame. Granderson has remained semi-productive despite his lowly .215 batting average. He has seven homers, 28 runs, 23 RBI and three stolen bases in 62 games.

Curtis Granderson homered and walked twice as the Mets' No. 7 hitter in Friday's loss.

One very good question for Terry Collins would be why is Granderson hitting seventh against a right-hander when he's been getting on base 40 percent of the time for the last month. If he had been hitting higher, the Mets might have pulled this one out tonight. Instead, they lost 3-2, with their only runs coming on solo homers.

Curtis Granderson homered and walked twice Tuesday versus the Rangers.

Granderson has outhit Jay Bruce since the end of April, and the Mets are a better defensive team with him in center and Michael Conforto in right than they are with Conforto in center and Bruce in right. They need to keep those two things in mind after they activate Yoenis Cespedes from the disabled list.
Jun 6 - 11:43 PM

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.

Both hits were singles and neither of them helped produce any runs as the Mets got blown out in the ballgame. The hits did bump his batting average above the Mendoza line though, so that's a good thing. Granderson has a extremely weak .201/.273/.368 triple-slash, although he has been a little bit better with his counting stats. He has four home runs, 22 runs and 19 RBI through 194 plate appearances.
May 31 - 10:43 PM

Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Mets topped the Pirates 7-2 in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Granderson also scored a run in the contest. His run-scoring single in the sixth inning plated Asdrubal Cabrera and increased the Mets' advantage to 6-1. While he had struggled mightily out of the leadoff spot entering play on Sunday, perhaps this was exactly the type of game Granderson needed to get back on track. He's now hitting .191/.265/.364 with four homers and 19 RBI.
May 28 - 11:27 PM

Curtis Granderson finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the Mets' loss to the Angels on Sunday.

Granderson went deep off Angels starter Jesse Chavez in the bottom of the fifth inning, and his double in the bottom of the sixth drove Chavez from the game. Granderson has finally begun to show some signs of life offensively, though he still owns a weak .169/.237/.338 overall batting line on the season.
May 21 - 4:49 PM

Curtis Granderson had a much-needed nice night Tuesday in Arizona, hitting a solo homer and taking a bases-loaded walk.

Zack Greinke walked Granderson to force in the first run of the game in the second, and then he served up a solo shot to Grandy to lead off the fifth. It was only the veteran outfielder's third home run of the season, as he was dropped to the No. 8 spot in the lineup Tuesday. That's quite a fall for a guy who batted cleanup on Opening Day.
May 17 - 12:39 AM

Curtis Granderson finished 0-for-4 in the Mets' loss to the Marlins on Sunday.

The veteran outfielder is now batting just .133/.200/.257 in 29 games this season. Granderson left three runners on base in Sunday's shutout loss against Miami.
May 7 - 3:54 PM

Curtis Granderson slugged a two-run homer and drew a walk Friday versus the Marlins.

This comes after Granderson hit two doubles against the Braves on Wednesday. The 36-year-old has been one of the game’s worst regulars this season, hitting .143 with a .474 OPS through 27 games, but perhaps he’s finally starting to get things going.
May 5 - 10:42 PM

Curtis Granderson is not in the Mets' lineup Thursday against the Braves.

He'll get the night off against left-hander Jaime Garcia. Granderson went 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles Wednesday night but is still hitting just .137 for the year. Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting eighth.
May 4 - 4:31 PM

Curtis Granderson is absent from the Mets' starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Juan Lagares will play center field and bat eighth versus Braves right-hander R.A. Dickey. Granderson has batted just .124/.177/.213 through 96 plate appearances this season for New York.
May 2 - 4:14 PM

Curtis Granderson is simply getting the day off Wednesday.

Granderson was in the Mets' original starting lineup, but Michael Conforto will instead get the nod in center field and bat leadoff versus Phillies right-hander Vince Velazquez. Call it a healthy scratch.
