Mets | Curtis Granderson not in lineup

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 12:36:39 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson is not in the starting lineup Wednesday April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) likely is sitting out since the Mets are facing a left-handed pitcher Wednesday. John Mayberry Jr. ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is receiving the start and has received nine at bats so far in 2015. He could be a cheaper option to consider on FantasyScore since he has had some success against Eric Stults in their limited matchups.

Mets | Results not there for Curtis Granderson

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 10:08:24 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson has just one hit in 16 at-bats to start the year (0.63), but he has seven walks, which is tied for the league lead. His .348 on-base percentage at the top of the lineup has helped the Mets set the table for the other hitters. "He's really got good strike zone discipline," hitting coach Kevin Long said. "You rarely see him expand out of the zone. His ability to make those decisions is exactly why he gets on base. To walk four times against the Nationals' staff is quite a chore. They're some of the best strike throwers in the league."

Fantasy Tip: Granderson ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) had a very good spring training, but the results have yet to carry over into the regular season. Be patient. The fact that he's having good at-bats and battling the opposing pitcher suggests he should find his groove soon.

Tigers | Miguel Cabrera records milestone

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 13:57:58 -0700

Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera recorded back-to-back four-hit games over the weekend. It is the first time since Curtis Granderson (June 26 and 27, 2008) that a Tiger has done this.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has seen his price drop a little due to injuries, but he's still a great buy at this salary. Any injury issues that dogged Cabrera at the start of the year appear to have vanished.

Mets | Curtis Granderson update

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 11:07:21 -0700

Fantasy Tip: It appears to be a non-issue for the start of the season. At $3,700 (7.4% of your cap), Granderson is a low-end outfield flyer on FantasyScore.

Mets | Curtis Granderson leaves game

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 09:49:35 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson (leg) left the spring game Thursday, April 2, after being hit in the right leg with a pitch. However, TV cameras caught him giving the thumbs up.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and the Mets face Max Scherzer and the Washington Nationals on opening day. Granderson had a very nice spring and fares much better against right-handed pitchers, but going against Scherzer should have you shying away from him at FantasyScore on opening day.

Mets | Curtis Granderson raking this spring

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 07:13:32 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson is hitting .444 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 45 spring at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson had a couple of 40-homer seasons under new hitting coach Kevin Long's tutelage with the New York Yankees. That's probably unlikely because Yankee Stadium's dimensions are much friendlier to hitters than Citi Field, but his spring showing is a positive sign. At $3,700 (7.4% of your cap), Granderson is a flyer well worth taking on FantasyScore.

Mets | Curtis Granderson likely to hit leadoff?

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 11:44:09 -0800

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson has no preference for where he hits in the lineup this year, and manager Terry Collins said Granderson's spot is "up in the air." Either Granderson or OF Juan Lagares will hit leadoff, with Collins favoring Granderson to avoid putting too much of a burden on Lagares. Granderson also downplayed the impact of the changes of the dimensions to Citi Field, although a team study showed that he would have hit nine extra homers with the new dimensions.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson could be a really nice value pick at the tail end of mixed league drafts this year. Hitting leadoff may hurt his RBI opportunities, but it'll also give him a chance to score more runs. The new Citi Field dimensions and prior history with new hitting coach Kevin Long could go a long way in helping him repeat a 20-homer season.
