Curtis Granderson Signs With Mets

Curtis Granderson is staying in New York but he’ll changing up his uniform.

CBS’s John Heyman reports the Mets have inked the free-agent center fielder to a four-year contract:

 

After slugging more than 40 homers and driving in more than 100 runs in the 2011 and 2012 campaigns with the Yankees, Granderson was hampered by injury last year. He played in just 61 games with a meager 7 HR’s, 15 RBI’s and a .229 batting average.

The 10 year veteran will hopefully bring some offensive production and defensive reliability to a Mets outfield that has been a patchwork for the last few seasons.

Names like Kirk Nieuwenhius, Lucas Duda, Mike Baxter and others had shown some promise but never seemed to really hit their potential.

The Mets hope the likes of Eric Young Jr. and Juan Lagares will continue to produce – to level of promise they showed in 2012 – while adding Granderson to the mix.

The Mets most productive offense player last season, right fielder Marlon Byrd, was traded away to Pittsburgh when it became evident the club was dead in the playoff chase.
