Curtis Granderson staying 'aggressive' atop lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Granderson has done some of his best work this season batting leadoff. He's hitting .278 with a .611 slugging percentage, .996 OPS and five home runs in 14 games atop the lineup.

"The main thing is you just want to stay aggressive so when I’m up there ready to hit from the first pitch of the game, it tends to put me in a situation where if I get my pitch I’m ready to swing at it. If I’m not [getting his pitch] I tend to lay off it," Granderson said. "It’s trying to keep that 2-0, 3-1 approach no matter what the count happens to be. Nine times out of 10, you tend to have better results in terms of not chasing pitches out of the zone."
