Los Angeles Dodgers pluck Curtis Granderson from Mets

Los Angeles Dodgers pluck Curtis Granderson from Mets

"But an opportunity to be able to go play in the postseason is exciting". He did play for OKC in June while on an injury rehab assignment. While he's hitting only.228 this season, he has a very respectable.815 OPS and has slugged 19 home runs in 395 plate appearances.

Meanwhile, they sent minor league right-hander Jacob Rhame to the Mets to complete the Curtis Granderson trade.

AmericaJR's Jason Rzucidlo was LIVE at Comerica Park for the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Detroit Tigers MLB baseball game on Sunday afternoon. But Granderson gives manager Dave Roberts yet another option off the bench along with center fielder Enrique Hernandez, and his speed and defense could be valuable assets in the postseason.

Granderson started the year in a bad slump just.128/.174.221 in April, since May 1st Granderson has been hitting at a.266/.384/.570 clip that translates to a wRC+ around 148 which is where Cody Bellinger has been in that time as well.

He hit 26 home runs as a rookie in 2015 and was named to the National League All-Star team, but a massive second-half slump resulted in him hitting.210 that season.

Curtis Granderson was traded to the Dodgers on Friday.

In Los Angeles, Granderson adds to an outfield that already has Yasiel Puig, Joc Pederson and Chris Taylor in its lineup. According to unnamed sources within the organization, the team has yet to discuss the specifics of an extension, but both sides have stated interest in working out a deal.
