Granderson will get the night off during the Mets' second game of the day against the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports

EDGE Analysis

Granderson started the first game of the doubleheader in right field, but will take a seat as Alejandro De Aza mans the position during the night game. The 35-year-old will likely be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale.

Granderson is making his first start in right field since August 2015, Tuesday against the Cubs, Maria Guardado of the Star-Ledger reports

EDGE Analysis

Manager Terry Collins has Michael Conforto starting his first game in right field while Yoenis Cespedes, to reduce the wear-and-tear on his legs, is starting in left. Collins has said that Conforto's long term position is center field, at which he was working to get acclimated during the day, so Granderson's start there Tuesday is temporary.

Granderson went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

He did a little bit of everything Sunday, and Granderson now has 16 homers on the year (although the steal was just his third). He's well on his way to his third straight 20-home run campaign in a Mets uniform.

The Mets are waiting to release a lineup Sunday because they are unsure about the availability of Granderson (calf), Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Granderson made his last start back on Tuesday, but outside of a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday, has been held out since then due to the ailment. If he remains unable to go Sunday afternoon, look for Brandon Nimmo or Alejandro De Aza to get the start in his stead.

Manager Terry Collins said he is hoping to have Granderson (calf) back in the lineup Sunday, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

EDGE Analysis

Granderson's calf tightened up on him earlier in the week and the injury will cost him his fourth straight start Saturday. He did pinch hit Wednesday but the Mets have held Granderson out entirely the past two days, and that will likely be the case again Saturday as they look to get him back in time to wrap up the Cubs series. The 35-year-old is not running much this season but the power is still there.

Granderson (calf) is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Granderson's calf continues to keep him on the sidelines as he'll miss his fourth consecutive game Saturday. Alejandro De Aza will take Granderson's spot in right field Saturday while fellow corner outfielder Brandon Nimmo takes over leadoff duties for the Mets.

Granderson (calf) will be out for at least the next couple of days, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, Granderson will not even be available as a pinch-hitter during his absence, as he nurses a slight calf strain. He was able to enter Wednesday's contest late in the game and singled in his only at bat, but the Mets will now exercise caution with the 35-year-old. A combination of Alejandro De Aza and Kelly Johnson figure to see an expanded role in Granderson's place.

Granderson (calf) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Granderson was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup as he continued to feel the lingering effects of a slight calf strain and he'll get another day off Thursday. The 35-year-old was used as a pinch-hitter in Wednesday's contest though, so it appears as though the ailment is relatively minor and he figures to be available in a similar capacity Thursday. Brandon Nimmo will slide over to right field in his place, while Kelly Johnson will draw the start in left field.

Granderson (calf) was scratched from Wednesday's lineup, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Granderson left Tuesday's game due to a calf issue, but manager Terry Collins had him penciled into the leadoff spot on the lineup card earlier Wednesday. However, after testing his calf out in the outfield, it became clear that giving Granderson the night off was the correct move. Alejandro De Aza will take over in right field and bat leadoff Wednesday in place of Granderson.
