Mets' Curtis Granderson: Dealing with calf strain
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/28/2016) Granderson has been playing with a slight calf strain, which tightened up on him during Tuesday's rain delay, The Record's Matt Ehalt reports.

The fact that he has been playing through the issue prior to leaving after the second rain delay Tuesday suggests it is a minor issue that shouldn't sideline him for long. That said,'s Anthony DiComo reports that Granderson may sit Wednesday to get another day off, but he should return to playing every day in the near future. Alejandro De Aza is the likely starter in right field Wednesday if Granderson gets the day off.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/28/2016) Pederson, who left Tuesday's game after slamming into the outfield wall, has a bruised AC joint (shoulder) and is considered day-to-day,'s Ken Gurnick reports.

Manager Dave Roberts said after the game that he thinks the Dodgers may have dodged a bullet, as X-rays on Pederson's shoulder were negative. He will be re-evaluated Wednesday, but it sounds like he could avoid a DL stint. Trayce Thompson figures to get the bulk of the starts in center field while Pederson is out.

(6/28/2016) Pederson left Tuesday's game with an apparent right arm/shoulder injury after slamming into the outfield wall while making a spectacular catch, the Orange County Register's Bill Plunkett reports.

Jonathan Lucroy, who was at second base, managed to scored on the tag, as Pederson was unable to get up to throw the ball back in. He was replaced by Trayce Thompson in center field, with Yasiel Puig coming in to play right field. Pederson will likely go for tests after the game, and his status will be updated when the team provides more details about the nature of the injury.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/28/2016) Greinke left Tuesday's game with tightness in his left oblique.

He left after briefly warming up for the start of the third inning, and interestingly the injury was on the non-throwing side of his body. That said, any injury to the abdominal area can sideline a pitcher, so Greinke should be considered highly questionable to make his next scheduled start on July 4. His status will be updated when more news about his timetable for recovery is released as the week goes on.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to

There was also some speculation that the veteran outfielder may have injured his elbow making a catch against the outfield wall prior to the delay, so owners will want to be sure to check his status prior to deploying him Wednesday. Alejandro De Aza, who replaced Granderson on Tuesday, would figure to see the bulk of the playing time in right field if Granderson had to miss further time.
