Curtis Granderson went 2-for-6 with a home run in the Mets' 14-5 win over the Reds on Friday.

The tater was Granderson's 17th of the season. He hit the three-run shot in the sixth inning. Granderson would finish the game 2-for-6 with four RBI. In his first year with the NL New York club, Granderson has struggled mightily. He's putting up the lowest numbers of his career in terms of average (.211), OBP (.313) and slugging (.362). At this point, Granderson will take any positives that he can.

Curtis Granderson went hit-less in four at-bats against the Cubs on Saturday.

The Mets put up seven runs, but Granderson was not part of the party. He's now hitting a skeletal .153/.242/.169 in August. Outside of a nice June, Granderson has simply been unable to muster any sustained stretches of hitting, leading to his overall line of .222/.327/.379. He'll try to shape that up as best he can in the last month and a half of the season.

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a walk Friday against the Phillies.

It was his first multi-hit games since July 29. Granderson was one of the better hitters in the National League from the start of May through the All-Star break, but he's batting just .181 (13-for-72) so far in the second half.
Aug 8 - 10:25 PM

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Mets have placed Curtis Granderson on revocable waivers.

It's common practice for many players to be put through the waiver process in August, so don't read anything into this. Granderson, who signed a four-year, $60 million contract over the winter, almost surely isn't going anywhere. Stark adds that Bartolo Colon, who is a player that could conceivably be moved this month, has not been placed on waivers yet.
Aug 8 - 1:34 PM

Curtis Granderson is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

Granderson has been scuffling quite a bit recently, so perhaps Mets manager Terry Collins has decided to give him a breather. Chris Young is starting in right field Tuesday while Eric Campbell will play left. This means that Lucas Duda is starting at first base even with left-hander Gio Gonzalez on the hill for Washington.
Aug 5 - 3:53 PM

Curtis Granderson is back in Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.

Granderson missed the previous two games due to illness, but he's ready to give it a go. He'll bat leadoff against Matt Garza.
Jul 24 - 4:14 PM

Curtis Granderson (illness) remained out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Granderson is still under the weather. The Mets do have Chris Young back in the lineup, as he's playing right field in Grandy's place.
Jul 23 - 1:40 PM

Curtis Granderson didn't start Tuesday's game against the Mariners due to an illness.

"He came in and said, 'I don't think I can go,'" Mets manager Terry Collins said of Granderson. "He's been sick since midnight. We've got him on fluids and he'll be unavailable." The Mets are hopeful that Granderson will be ready to go on Wednesday.

Curtis Granderson hit a leadoff home run and finished 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

Granderson hit his 14th home run of the season and his second in as many days to lead off the game against Julio Teheran. Granderson turned it around in June after a slow start, batting .300/.411/.522 last month. He's carried that over to July, hitting .296 with three home runs, six RBI and seven runs scored in seven games.
Jul 8 - 10:34 PM

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

Granderson, batting in the lead-off spot again, tied the game up at 2-2 with a third-inning homer off of lefty Mike Minor. The outfielder has now homered in back-to-back games, giving him 12 on the season with 38 RBI and a .234/.349/.415 slash line.
Jul 1 - 10:50 PM

Curtis Granderson hit a leadoff homer and later added a single Monday against the Braves.

Granderson was leading off even though the Braves were throwing a lefty in Alex Wood, but he's had pretty even splits for years now anyway. He's been the Mets' best player the last two months, even if he still has just a .231 average to show for it.
Jun 30 - 11:24 PM

Curtis Granderson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Athletics.

Granderson belted his 10th home run of the season, taking Scott Kazmir deep in the second inning to put the Mets up 2-1. The 33-year-old outfielder has been much better at the plate as of late and now owns a .234/.356/.409 slash line with 35 RBI on the season.
Jun 24 - 9:46 PM

Curtis Granderson popped up as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's loss to the Padres.

Granderson hasn't started the last three games due to a calf injury, but the fact that he was able to pinch-hit suggests that he's close. He's batting .223/.337/.384 for the Mets this season.
Jun 15 - 4:32 AM

Curtis Granderson (calf) is not in the Mets starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.

It's the third straight game that Granderson has missed due to his calf injury. The hope is that he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list and return in a couple of days. Bobby Abreu will make a fourth consecutive start and hit cleanup for the Mets on Saturday.
