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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
