Granderson got on base twice for the Mets. He went 1-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Perhaps, Granderson needs baby steps to get his offense going. Cuddyer finally broke out of his early season slump. If Granderson can do the same, he'll have many opportunities to score runs for the Mets with Duda and Cuddyer batting behind him.

Curtis Granderson struggles in opening series against the Nationals. Granderson went 1-10 with four walks in the three games. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Although Granderson has drawn four walks in the Mets first three games, he is struggling when making contact. Granderson only recorded one hit in the series. The upcoming series seems unlikely to favor Granderson as the Mets face two left handed starters.

 

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 on Friday during the Mets win over the Texas Rangers. Granderson is now hitting .440 with three home runs, 13 RBI, 10 runs scored and 10 walks in 21 games this spring. It's a good sign for Granderson and the Mets heading into the regular season. Granderson his just .227 with 20 home runs and 66 RBI in 564 at-bats last season.

Citi Field tweaking dimensions

Tue, Nov 18th 10:26pm EST
By Clinton

For the second time since the ballpark debuted in 2009, the New York Mets are significantly tweaking the dimensions to their home stadium. Under the new dimensions, Right-Center will be moved in 5 to 11 feet, depending on the spot. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Granderson had previously hit 40+ HRs when playing for the Yankees and hit 20 HRs last season in his first with the Mets. With the new dimensions, Right-Center at Citi Field would be shorter than the ballpark where Granderson showed off his HR potential. Consider this an automatic boost to Granderson's fantasy value.
