Curtis Granderson turns focus to 'getting on base'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2014) Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson saw a decline in production in 2013 as he dealt with a broken forearm and pinkie injury, which limited him to 61 games for the Yankees.

Granderson is now playing across town in Citi Field, where the spacious dimensions compared to Yankee Stadium could have an effect on his offense. Granderson is due to hit cleanup behind David Wright.

"It's going to be interesting," Granderson said, per ESPN. "I've never been a guy who has wrote down my stats and said, 'This is what I want to do this upcoming season.' But I do write all my goals down. And a lot of the different things are going to be continuing to get my work in the cage, understanding a new organization with a new philosophy, continuing to have fun first and foremost, being ready to roll every day -- which has always been there, since Day 1 -- and looking at different ratios and situations that I can put myself in to succeed as best as possible. 

"The best thing is: It's a big ballpark. And as long as you touch some grass, you get a chance to use the feet and run for a little bit. That's what I'm all about -- getting on base in any form or fashion, no matter where I happen to bat in the lineup."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson is considering the team's qualifying offer, according to MLB Network Radio.

If Granderson were to accept the offer, he would return to the club for one year, and receive a deal for a little over $14 million.

Yankees still in limbo on Curtis Granderson


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(11/3/2013) According to the New York Daily News, the Yankees are still undecided as to whether to make outfielder Curtis Granderson a qualifying offer, just one day before the deadline.

Phillies targeting outfielders in free agency


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Ellsbury and Choo are expected to be highly coveted by multiple teams this offseason, while interest in Cruz will likely be determined by each team's level of comfort with his ability after serving a drug-related suspension in 2013. For comparison, Melky Cabrera signed just a two-year, $16-million deal after serving a drug-related suspension late in the 2012 season.
