Curtis Granderson is out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

It's just a day of routine maintenance for the veteran outfielder. Michael Conforto is in left field, Juan Lagares is in center, and Alejandro De Aza is in right. De Aza will also lead off versus Reds righty Jon Moscot.
Apr 27 - 3:05 PM

Curtis Granderson went 3-for-5 and homered twice against the Braves, but the highlight on Friday night was his grand slam in the second inning.

Granderson has been coming alive at the plate in recent games. He's hitting .210/.319/.484 on the year, but he's 9-for-28 (.321) with two doubles and four home runs in his last six contests. The 35-year-old was a top-25 fantasy outfielder a year ago. There's little reason to think he can't do it again, but most of his value will come via the home run. He's no sure thing to steal double-digit bases anymore. He stole 11 a year ago but doesn't have a single attempt in 2016.
Apr 23 - 12:37 AM

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-5 with a leadoff home run in Saturday's loss to the Indians.

Granderson also doubled and scored a run in the eighth inning. The homer was the first of the year, and first RBI, for the outfielder, who has struggled to a .146/.239/.268 line out of the gate. He does have a modest four-game hitting streak going, though, and perhaps Saturday's showing was a positive indicator that things are taking a turn.
Apr 16 - 8:28 PM

Curtis Granderson went 0-for-4 with a walk on Monday and is now batting .042 so far this season.

He's drawn four walks, but Granderson has just one hit in his first 24 at-bats this season and that came on Opening Day. The veteran outfielder is coming off a terrific 2015 season that saw him hit .259/.364/.457 with 26 homers and 11 steals, so it's too soon to be concerned. However, don't forget that he turned 35 last month.
Apr 11 - 11:18 PM

Curtis Granderson went hitless again Saturday, finishing 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout against the Phillies.

Granderson singled in the ninth inning of the season-opening game against the Royals, and it has turned out to be his only hit through his first 16 at-bats. He has three walks to go with six strikeouts and a rough .063/.211/.063 line in four games.
Apr 9 - 10:13 PM

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-3 against the Yankees in his spring debut Wednesday.

Granderson, who will resume his role as the Mets' leadoff hitter to begin the year, is back from an eye infection that had troubled him for about 10 days.
Mar 9 - 5:36 PM

Curtis Granderson (eye) will make his Grapefruit League debut Wednesday against the Yankees.

He's been dealing with an eye infection. Granderson will man right field and bat leadoff. Yoenis Cespedes, who had previously been limited to DHing, will also play outfield for the first time this spring.
Mar 9 - 8:32 AM

Curtis Granderson (eye) is aiming to make his Grapefruit League debut early this week.

Mar 6 - 9:18 AM

Curtis Granderson (eye) participated in baseball activities Wednesday.

Granderson took part in running and throwing and is also expected to hit. The veteran outfielder had a brief scare with pink eye, but he appears to already be past it.
Mar 2 - 11:38 AM

Curtis Granderson (eye) will work out wearing glasses on Tuesday.

Granderson was diagnosed with pink eye following a visit to the eye doctor on Monday, but it has already cleared up. The Mets will surely keep tabs on him, but it sounds like a minor issue.
Mar 1 - 11:36 AM

Curtis Granderson has been diagnosed with pink eye in his right eye.

Granderson was sent to see an eye doctor and Monday and will understandably be kept away from Mets camp until things clear up. The good news is that he's considered day-to-day, so he shouldn't be out of action for long.
Mar 1 - 8:40 AM

Curtis Granderson may be suffering from pink eye.

That's what Mets manager Terry Collins told the media on Monday after sending Granderson to an eye doctor. There should be confirmation of the diagnosis by Tuesday morning. Granderson will probably be kept away from the club's spring training facilities for the next couple of days, but he should ultimately be fine.
Feb 29 - 12:52 PM

Curtis Granderson has an eye issue, according to Newsday's Marc Carig.

Granderson left Mets camp early on Monday morning, sounding some alarms around the baseball world, but it doesn't sound like we're dealing with anything too serious. If it's pink eye, he'll probably be kept away from the team's facilities for a couple of days. There should be a full update from Mets management on Monday afternoon.
Feb 29 - 11:23 AM

Curtis Granderson left Mets camp early on Monday due to an apparent medical issue.

There are no other details available at this point. Look for a full update from the Mets by early afternoon. Granderson was a rock for New York's offense in 2015, posting an .821 OPS with 26 home runs, 70 RBI, 11 stolen bases, and 98 runs scored in 157 regular-season games. He needed surgery after the World Series for a torn ligament in his left thumb.
