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.

Cecil Shorts might be ready to play against Jacksonville in Week 6.
Both Shorts and Nate Washington missed Thursday's game, making way for Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery. While strong caught two TDs, Mumphery was a non-factor. Strong earned himself more playing time in the coming weeks, possibly coming at Shorts' expense, though it could come at Washington's as coach Bill O'Brien said that Shorts had a better chance of playing against Jacksonville than Washington does.
