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.

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.

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.
Jun 30 - 4:11 PM

Curtis Granderson (calf) remained out of the Mets' lineup Thursday.

Granderson was able to pinch-hit Wednesday but apparently isn't ready to return to the lineup just yet. Brandon Nimmo is in right field and in the leadoff spot and Kelly Johnson is in left.
Jun 30 - 3:39 PM

Curtis Granderson (calf) notched a pinch-hit single in Wednesday's loss to the Nationals.

Granderson was a late scratch from the lineup due to a minor calf ailment that forced him from Tuesday's game, but the fact that he was able to pinch-hit (and do so successfully) is a good sign. He could be back in the lineup as soon as Thursday.
Jun 30 - 8:11 AM

Curtis Granderson (calf) has been scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

Granderson was initially penciled-in to bat leadoff against Max Scherzer on Wednesday, but after testing his strained right calf in pregame exercises, it looks like he will be riding the pine for the day. Alejandro De Aza will take over leadoff duties in his place. This is thought to be a minor injury, but the veteran outfielder might receive another game or two off just to be on the safe side.
Jun 29 - 6:21 PM

Curtis Granderson (calf) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

Granderson was lifted from Tuesday's game after a rain delay due to what manager Terry Collins termed a "small" calf strain. This has been an injury that has nagged Granderson in recent days -- it also forced him out of the lineup on Sunday -- but he is penciled into Wednesday's lineup as the leadoff hitter.
Jun 29 - 4:27 PM

Curtis Granderson (calf) will take part in pregame exercises to determine whether he can play in Wednesday's game against the Nationals.

Granderson had trouble loosening up after a rain delay in Tuesday's game. He was pulled from the lineup following the delay and Mets manager Terry Collins later said that the veteran outfielder has a "small" calf strain. That right calf will be wrapped pregame as Granderson tests his availability for Wednesday. While he would be facing off with Max Scherzer should he be able to play, the Grandy Man is 8-for-24 (.333) with two homers and three doubles against the ace for his career.
Jun 29 - 4:11 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Curtis Granderson is dealing with a "small" calf strain.

Granderson was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Nationals after he had issues getting loose following a rain delay. This calf strain also kept him out of action on Sunday, but doesn't sound like a potential long-term injury. Unless the Mets indicate otherwise, Granderson should be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Jun 29 - 12:29 AM

Curtis Granderson was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Nationals when he had difficulty getting loose after a long rain delay.

The veteran outfielder has logged a lot of innings this season, so manager Terry Collins opted to play things safe when Granderson tightened up. He should be back in the lineup in the next day or two.
Jun 28 - 10:55 PM

Curtis Granderson is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. Brandon Nimmo is in right field for his major league debut Sunday, and Kelly Johnson is in left and in the leadoff spot. The Mets are also resting Asdrubal Cabrera and Travis d'Arnaud, as Matt Reynolds is at shortstop and Rene Rivera is catching.
