Latest Update Curtis Granderson (illness) is not in Mets starting lineup Tuesday Tue Jul, 22, 07:07 PM
A line-drive hitter with very good power, he has above-average speed as well. Can get red-hot with the bat for stretches. Is also a solid defensive outfielder.
Flaws: : His strikeout totals can be way too high, since his swing is quite long. Also has some trouble hitting with consistency, especially against southpaws.
After a very disappointing start to his Mets tenure Granderson has begun to turn his season around displaying both his power with 13 home runs and his speed with eight stolen bases that made him a threat during his days with the Yankees. Granderson's average has never been too impressive as it currently sits at .235 but that number could continues to rise as he hit .300 for the month of June and is currently hitting .250 for the month of July which is right around his career average.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
The Mets are facing Erasmo Ramirez, who has been brutal this season, so fantasy owners will have to sit Granderson despite the great matchup. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Granderson has been a solid source of power production since moving to the top of the batting order, slashing .278/.385/.611 with five home runs, eight RBI and 11 runs scored while maintaining a respectable 12:10 K:BB rate over his last 54 at-bats. Although his new home atop the Mets lineup is going to limit his RBI production, his increased performances in the other areas will more than make up for it, especially if he can keep up his current pace after a slow start to the year.

After what has been a season of disappointment, Granderson has finally woken up recently going 9-for-26 (.346) over his last seven games with three home runs, six RBI and six runs scored. He's still only hitting .234 on the year, so he's either going to have to power up more to make that average tolerable or he's going to have to boost the average and on-base percentage to make the low-power output more understandable.Analyst: Howard Bender
