New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson's (forearm, rib cage, knee) X-rays came back negative, but he struggled to put on his shoes after the game Monday, April 14. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is expected to be brought up from Triple-A Las Vegas to help with outfield depth. Granderson crashed into the outfield wall attempting to make a catch Monday but later left the game with encouragement from the training staff.
"I hit the wall with my forearm, which then lodged my elbow into my chest area. And then running full stride my left knee also hit," Granderson said. "As the game just kept going on, things just started to tighten up a little bit. The great thing is all the X-rays are negative. We just wanted to be on the safe side and check everything, which we were able to do at the ballpark."
Fantasy Tip: Lucas Duda can be moved to the outfield to help with the likely loss of Juan Lagares (hamstring), and Chris Young (quadriceps) is expected to return from the DL Friday. Until then, Andrew Brown may see more playing time if Grandy needs some rest.

"I think both (3B David Wright and OF Curtis Granderson) are RBI guys," Collins said. "My thought is: How do we get them more RBI chances and also give David, in particular, chances to drive in runs. It is a possibility I might try (hitting the pitcher eighth). I don't know that I will, but I might."
