Curtis Granderson went 2-for-5 with a home run, one RBI and two runs scored against the Braves on Tuesday.
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.

Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
