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.
