Granderson is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

As has regularly been the case this season, Granderson will get the day off with a left-hander -- Jaime Garcia this time -- on the mound for the opposition. John Mayberry will get the start in right field Thursday in Granderson's place.

Granderson went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBI, including a two-run homer in the 14-1 win over the Brewers on Saturday.

The Mets went off on Milwaukee and Granderson was the catalyst out of the leadoff spot. He now has an OBP of .365 and appears to be finding the power stoke he is known for.

Granderson went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Sunday's victory over the Phillies.

Granderson is still hitting just .238 on the season, but he is picking up the pace in the power department, tallying two home runs and a double through eight games this month after recording just five extra-base hits over 23 May contests. He continues to hold down the leadoff spot for the Mets.

Granderson is back in the lineup Sunday against the Nationals.

Granderson was granted a rare day off Saturday, likely due to the fact that lefty Gio Gonzalez was starting for the Nats. With Washington going with a right-hander in Doug Fister on Sunday, Granderson will reclaim his usual spot atop the order.

Granderson is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

Granderson went 3-for-5 with four RBI in the Mets' win over the Braves on Tuesday night.

He's still hitting just .196 on the season, but Granderson's slow start is significantly different than his slump to begin to 2014. Most notably, he's struck out just eight times in 46 at-bats while drawing 12 free passes.

Granderson put together his second consecutive two-hit game Wednesday against the Phillies.

After starting 1-for-17, Grandy's gone 4-for-9 over the last two games. We're still waiting for the power -- he has no homers and no RBI -- but he's shown impressive plate discipline and seems like he could score a lot of runs atop the Mets' lineup.

Granderson is not in the lineup Sunday against the Braves, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

Granderson has struggled to start the season and is probably receiving the day off to regroup. He's only hit 1-for-16, which is not ideal for a player in the lead-off role. John Mayberry will fill in at right field.

Granderson went 1-for-3 with two walks Thursday in a win over the Nationals.

The hit was Grandy's first of the year, as he's now 1-for-10 as the Mets' leadoff hitter in the early going, but he's drawn four walks in three games, which may help keep him atop the order for a little while yet. It's hard to believe, though, that Granderson will lead off for the Mets all year long.
