by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2015) Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson hit his 14th home run of the season in Sunday afternoon's 2-1 win over the Reds in 13 innings.

Mets RF Curtis Granderson crushes 12th home run on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/26/2015) Mets right fielder Curtis Granderson stayed hot at the plate, as he swatted a lead-off home run against the Reds on Friday night. The home run was Granderson's 12th of the season, and fourth in his last six games.

"He can kick-start an offense to where it gets us right out of the gate with a lead. That's just hugely important," manager Terry Collins said, per MLB.com.

The home run was his only hit in three at-bats, but it gave the Mets the early lead in the eventual 2-1 win. 

"As you can tell, he means a lot," Collins said. "There was a legitimate question asked yesterday about putting him to the middle of the lineup because of the way he's been swinging and driving in runs. Unfortunately, we haven't been swinging and he keeps driving himself in. But what he did tonight is exactly why we have him there."


Mets RF Curtis Granderson collects three more hits on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/25/2015) Mets right fielder Curtis Granderson continued his offensive assault on Milwaukee pitching on Thursday afternoon. Granderson had three hits in five at-bats in the 2-0 win over the Brewers, after hitting a home run in each of the first two games of the series. Overall in the three-game set, Granderson had five hits in 11 at-bats.

Granderson also feasted on Brewers pitching in a three-game series in New York earlier this season, when he had four hits in 13 at-bats, including two more home runs. Unfortunately for Granderson, the Mets are not scheduled to play the Brewers again during the regular season in 2015.


Mets' Collins wants to keep Curtis Granderson in leadoff spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2015) Mets right fielder Curtis Granderson has homered in three of his last four games and is pretty much one of the few Mets players providing offense during a seven-game losing streak.

However, despite Granderson's recent offensive surge, manager Terry Collins is not interested in taking him out of the leadoff spot.

"Who's getting on?" Collins said, per NJ.com. "So we leave him where he's at because he's doing a good job, he's getting on, he's hitting some home runs.

"Why would we disturb the one guy who's, right now, swinging the bat like we want to. So we're going to leave him where he is."

Granderson doesn't seem too concerned about where he hits in the lineup.

"Wherever Terry wants to put me, that's where I think the best spot is," he said. "If it happens to be in the top middle or bottom, so far, out of my year and a half here, I've batted in a lot of spots. Right now I'm leading off. So that's where I happen to be. If things happen to change, I'll adjust accordingly."

Granderson now has a slash line of .242/.342/.410 for the season.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Collins has said Lagares is expected to be back in the starting lineup on Friday against the Brewers.

"Last night obviously was cold and he was still a little stiff, but he felt better," Collins said, per ESPN.com. "You're just saying, 'Geez, nine hours from now we've got to be back here. How much better can it be in nine hours? ... If you give him 30 hours, there might be a significant improvement. Will it be 100 percent [Friday]? Probably not. But it will be a hecukva lot more improved that I don't know if he'll aggravate it as much as he would if he dove for a ball today and jarred himself again."
