Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 with four RBI as the Mets rattled off a ninth straight win Tuesday, besting the Braves 7-1.

Granderson delivered the big blow in the Mets' four-run fifth inning, plating two with a bases-loaded single. He singled in a run in the sixth inning and had an RBI double in the eighth as well. Hits have been hard to come by but Granderson has found ways to contribute atop the Mets' lineup, scoring eight runs while compiling a .196/.362/.217 line. His power disappearance is certainly concerning, though.

Curtis Granderson is at leadoff for the Mets in Monday's season-opener versus the Nationals.

There was talk this spring of Juan Lagares getting the leadoff nod, but he's batting sixth on Monday in the nation's capital. Here is the full Opening Day lineup for the Mets: Curtis Granderson RF, David Wright 3B, Lucas Duda 1B, Michael Cuddyer LF, Daniel Murphy 2B, Juan Lagares CF, Travis d'Arnaud C, Wilmer Flores SS, Bartolo Colon RHP.

Curtis Granderson singled and went 1-for-2 in Saturday's spring tilt against the Rangers.

The veteran was plunked in the right knee on Thursday, but the injury was relatively minor and he appears ready for Opening Day. This spring, Granderson has been smacking the cover off the ball, slashing .435/.534/.717 with three home runs. He's looking to improve on a disappointing 2014 season in which he hit just .227/.326/.388. Granderson's 20 home runs last season represented his lowest healthy-season total since 2006.
Apr 4 - 5:15 PM

Curtis Granderson (knee) is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

Granderson had to exit Thursday's game after getting plunked on the right knee with a pitch, but he's fine. The veteran outfielder is batting a robust .435/.534/.717 with three homers this spring.
Apr 3 - 4:56 PM

Curtis Granderson acknowledged Thursday that there is some swelling in his right knee, but he expects to be fine for the Mets' season-opener on Monday.

Granderson was lifted from Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals after taking a pitch off his knee. He was able to walk off the field under his own power. This looks to be a non-issue.
Apr 2 - 2:07 PM

Curtis Granderson was pulled from Thursday's Grapefruit League game after taking a pitch off his right knee.

Granderson jogged down to first base before getting pulled, so it doesn't seem like anything too serious. There should be an update out of Mets camp within the hour.
Apr 2 - 12:46 PM

Curtis Granderson hit a three-run homer off the Nationals' Stephen Strasburg on Saturday.

Granderson was back in the two hole today after leading off last time out. That he'll be in one of those two spots to begin the season gives his fantasy value a boost; it'll cost him RBI, but the extra at-bats and runs scored outweigh that.
Mar 28 - 5:06 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins is still deciding between Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares for the leadoff spot.

For what it's worth, Puma hears that the team's statistical analysis says Granderson should be the leadoff man. And it's hard to disagree from a pure baseball perspective, as Lagares has yet to show the ability to get on base consistently. Still, Lagares would be a heck of a lot more interesting from a fantasy perspective if he's the leadoff man.
Mar 25 - 1:43 PM

Curtis Granderson hit his second homer and walked Thursday versus the Astros.

Entering spring training, we were assuming the Mets would bat David Murphy in the two hole and Granderson sixth. That still might be the best bet (they both his second with the Mets playing split-squad games today), but Granderson has been making all of his spring starts in the top third of the order and he's thrived, hitting .381 with seven walks in 23 at-bats. It really would be worth trying for the Mets; Murphy hits for a much better average than Granderson and strikes out less, but Granderson has nearly matched him in OBP anyway and he almost never never grounds into double plays.
Mar 19 - 4:32 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Curtis Granderson has been mentioned as a possibility to serve as the team's leadoff hitter.

While Granderson had success in that role early in his career, he is no longer the prototypical leadoff type as he strikes out far too often and doesn't get on base enough. Aside from Juan Lagares though, the Mets are lacking in experienced options there, so it's conceivable that Granderson could end up there against right-handed pitching which would be a boon to his fantasy value.
Feb 21 - 1:39 PM

Curtis Granderson hit his 20th home run in a losing effort against the Astros on Friday.

Granderson went yard off of Brad Peacock in the fourth inning, temporarily giving the Mets a 1-0 lead. The outfielder is at the end of a disappointing first year with the Mets. He's batting .230/.329/.393 along with 66 RBI.

Curtis Granderson hit an eighth inning home run against the Braves on Saturday.

The solo shot was his 19th home run of the year. The Grandyman is looking for his eighth season of 20 or more long balls. Granderson finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. His season slash-line of .223/.323/.384 is obviously disappointing, but he is .276/.364/.500 in the month of September. Better late than never?

Curtis Granderson went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win against the Marlins.

Granderson has been swinging a better bat as of late, batting .357 (15-for-42) over his last 12 games. He singled in the go-ahead run in the fourth, which ultimately proved to be a drop in the bucket. Granderson is slashing .222/.322/.377 with 18 home runs and 60 RBI.

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.
