Curtis Granderson homered twice in extra innings Saturday, including hitting a game-winning, walk-off homer in the 12th inning of the Mets' 3-2 win over the Twins.
After Byron Buxton had given the Twins the lead in the top half of the 11th inning, Grandy led off the bottom portion of the frame with a solo jack of his own. Not yet finished, the 35-year-old then came up with two outs in the bottom of the 12th and pulled a pitch over the right field boards to send the fans home happy. Granderson now has 28 dingers, 51 RBI and 74 runs scored to go with a .221/.316/.450 line this year. Sep 18 - 12:48 AM

Curtis Granderson smoked a two-run homer and added an RBI single to lead the Mets over the Braves 6-4 on Friday.

The sixth-inning blast came off Braves ace Julio Teheran with Yoenis Cespedes aboard. Granderson's run-producing single was a key blow in the Mets' four-run rally in the eighth inning that flipped a two-run deficit into a two-run lead they would never relinquish. The rapidly aging veteran still wields a powerful bat in terms of homers but hasn't been able to do much else this year. He is batting .228 with 26 longballs and only 48 RBI.

Curtis Granderson homered and drove in three runs on Sunday as the Mets dispatched of the Nationals 5-1 on Sunday night in New York.

Granderson got the Mets on the board with a sacrifice fly in the first inning, then put his club ahead for good with a two-run blast off Reynaldo Lopez in the third. He finished the night 1-for-3, raising his season slash to .222/.313/.432 to go along with 23 homers and 43 RBI.

Curtis Granderson homered twice and drove in three runs as the Mets beat the Marlins 7-4 on Tuesday.

Granderson didn't even start Tuesday's game, entering as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning. He slugged a solo homer in that at-bat, and an inning later Granderson cracked a two-run dinger to give him 22 homers on the year. They've come with the usual Granderson caveat of an inconsistent .223/.314/.433 batting line in 122 games. He also has just 38 RBI somehow.

Curtis Granderson slugged a long solo homer Friday against the Giants.

It was his only hit in four at-bats on Friday, but he made it count, as it landed in the water at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Granderson has gone deep in back-to-back games and is now up to 20 homers on the year. Unfortunately, he has driven in just 34 runs along the way while hitting just .224 with a .313 on-base percentage. He stands to lose playing time when the Mets bring Michael Conforto back from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Curtis Granderson is getting the day off Thursday.

Alejandro De Aza will start in center field and bat leadoff versus Diamondbacks right-hander Braden Shipley. Granderson went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts in Wednesday night's loss to Arizona.
Aug 11 - 9:58 AM

Curtis Granderson hit his 18th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

Grandy finished 1-for-5 in the game, a theme of late for the struggling outfielder. Granderson is hitting just .232/.329/.439 with those 18 home runs, 31 RBI and 51 runs scored in 103 games this year and has been demoted to a part-time role in a crowded Mets outfield.
Aug 6 - 11:39 PM

Curtis Granderson is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Yankees.

Granderson is the odd-man out with Jay Bruce's arrival. He's expected to share playing time in center field moving forward. Alejandro De Aza is starting in center field on Tuesday while Michael Conforto plays left.

Curtis Granderson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

Granderson connected for a solo homer off Phillies starter Zach Eflin in the third inning. That pushed the Mets' advantage to 2-0, more than enough for an on-point Jacob deGrom. Actually, deGrom would have been fine with a 1-0 lead, too, as he blanked the Phillies over nine innings. Anyway. The Grandy Man is slashing .240/.338/.464 with 16 doubles, 16 homers, 45 runs scored and 28 RBI across 321 at-bats. While his days as a fantasy stalwart are but a distant memory, the veteran's bat still offers a respectable degree of power.
Jul 17 - 5:25 PM

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with a double in the Mets' loss on Saturday.

Those two hits were half the Mets' total for the night. The 35-year-old Granderson doesn't show many signs of slowing down. With the exception of RBI, his stats look similar to the last few years. He is batting .241 with 15 home runs, 42 runs and 27 RBI with one game left in the first half.
Jul 9 - 10:39 PM

Curtis Granderson went 3-for-4 with two runs scored to help the Mets outlast the Nationals 9-7 on Thursday.

Granderson also walked twice, reaching base in five of his six plate appearances on the night. Grandy started slowly but has gotten progressively better as the year has gone on, and he's now hitting .400 with two homers, five RBI and five runs scored since the calendar turned to July. In that sense, the All-Star break may be coming at an inopportune time for the 35-year-old.
Jul 8 - 12:23 AM

Curtis Granderson (calf) is back in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

It's his first start since he left Tuesday's game with a strained calf. Granderson is in right field and batting second against Jon Lester and the Cubs. The Mets are giving Travis d'Arnaud a breather Sunday, as Rene Rivera is handling the catching.
Jul 3 - 11:22 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins is hopeful Curtis Granderson (calf) will return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Granderson was expected to sit out the entire weekend with a strained calf but obviously he's showing signs of improvement. Alejandro De Aza will get the start in right field on Saturday. Granderson has struggled to a .228 batting average this year, though he does have 13 home runs.
Jul 2 - 5:04 PM

Curtis Granderson (calf) is not expected to return to the lineup this weekend.

The good news is that it's not expected to be a disabled list situation. The Mets have Brandon Nimmo in right field and in the leadoff spot again Friday, while Kelly Johnson is handling left.
Jul 1 - 3:29 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Thursday that Curtis Granderson (calf) will be unavailable, even to pinch hit, for the next few days.

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. We should know more on Granderson's status after he gets his MRI results back.
