Why Mets' Curtis Granderson is starting over Michael Conforto vs. Giants

Terry Collins used one determining factor. SAN FRANCISCO -- Michael Conforto is not slumping, and everyone involved with the Mets will readily come to his defense if you dare say the word slump.  But for the second day in a row and the fourth time in five games, Conforto is out of the lineup. Curtis Granderson starts in centerfield and leads...

Curtis Granderson Continues to Boost Possible Trade Value

New York Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson has completely turned his 2017 season around after hitting only .128/.174/.221 combined between March and April.

Hot-hitting Curtis Granderson gets the short stick in OF rotation

For most of the year, injuries have kept the Mets from having to make too many tough decisions on how to handle who starts in the outfield. And while currently there is an outfielder on the disabled list, Juan Lagares was clearly lower on the pecking order than the other four players.
