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."

“That’s all it is. I’m not going up there switching things up, trying to do more, trying to do less. It’s just a matter of continuing to put good swings on the ball.”

Mets' Granderson leaves spring game after getting hit by pitch


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Mets right fielder Curtis Granderson left Thursday's spring game against the Cardinals after getting hit on the right leg by a Lance Lynn pitch in the top of the third inning. Granderson was able to take his base following the HBP, but he was then replaced by John Mayberry Jr. in the bottom half of the inning.

Granderson said after the game there is some swelling and soreness in his right knee, but he doesn't seem too worried about the injury, according to Newsday.

"They've moved it around. They checked all around it, everything like that," he said, per ESPN. "I've been able to walk around and all that stuff, no problem. No limp that I've noticed or anybody has said anything about. It's starting to swell up a little bit, which is to be expected. But nothing too major though."

Granderson, who was 0 for 1 before exiting the game, entered play Thursday batting .444 (20 for 45) with three home runs, four doubles, 12 RBI, 10 runs, 10 walks and five strikeouts in 19 spring games.

Granderson missed about the first six weeks of the 2013 season with the Yankees with a fractured right forearm, which he suffered after getting hit by a pitch in his spring debut that year. Shortly after his return in 2013, he missed a few more months after he was hit by another pitch, which resulted in a broken knuckle on his left pinkie finger that required surgery.

Mets' Curtis Granderson re-working his swing


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson is re-working his swing with hitting coach Kevin Long, according to the New York Post

Granderson and Long have a history. The two worked together with the Yankees. Long rebuilt Granderson's swing, turning him into a massive home run hitter from 2011 to 2012. Now, they are looking to repeat the process.

"This is actually very similar to the first time we started making adjustments," Granderson said. "The idea is we want to get to the strongest position as consistently as possible with as little movement as possible."

Long went into detail, saying he's trying to get Granderson to "preset" his hands. "Get him in the perfect hitting position so the hands are ready to fire and he can go as efficiently as possible from point A to point B," Long said.

Granderson said everything is "still a work in progress," but he feels like Long's drills are getting through to him.

The 33-year-old Granderson hit .227/.326/.388 over 564 at-bats last season.

Mets' Granderson downplays impact of dimensions at Citi Field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson downplayed the impact the new dimensions at Citi Field will have on his performance in 2015, per ESPN.

"It was a transition because it was a new stadium," Granderson said of his struggles in his first year with the Mets in 2014. "But it wasn't anything different. People come up and said, 'Oh, it must be hard hitting there.' No, you play in all the other ballparks all the time. Your home games, you've only got half of them there. And then you're going to play somewhere else. You don't adjust your game accordingly. If you hit it, it will go. If you don't, it won't. It's the same in any ballpark."

Although, the addition of hitting coach Kevin Long could have a bigger impact on Granderson.

"The biggest thing is he brings a sense of confidence," Granderson said. "One of the things I enjoyed about being with him for four years with the Yankees was he was always your biggest fan. No matter what he ended up talking about in terms of mechanics or approach or different things, once you came off the field, he was the first one saying, 'Hey, you're real close. You're almost there.' As you know in this game, confidence is a big thing."
