Granderson is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Granderson continues to sit against left-handed pitching, turning over center field to Justin Ruggiano whenever the Mets face a southpaw. Adam Morgan is starting for the Phillies on Friday. The 35-year-old Granderson is batting .220/.284/.382 against left-handed pitching this season and .164/.225/.384 overall in August -- it seems his time as a useful mixed-league option may be up.

Granderson is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets will deploy an outfield of Jay Bruce, Justin Ruggiano, and Yoenis Cespedes for Tuesday's matchup with Cardinals lefty Jaime Garcia, which leaves Granderson on the bench. Granderson has struggled mightily against lefties the past two years, slugging under .400 against southpaws in 2015 and 2016.

Granderson is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants, Maria Guardado of the Star-Ledger reports.

EDGE Analysis

He accounted for all of the Mets' offense Friday against Johnny Cueto with a solo home run, his second homer in as many games and 20th of the season, but Granderson will sit Saturday with lefty Matt Moore due up. With Justin Ruggiano and Yoenis Cespedes both back from the DL, Granderson may be squeezed out of the lineup against southpaws more often moving forward.

EDGE Analysis

With Granderson sitting out, the Mets will head into Sunday's game with an outfield of Ty Kelly, Alejandro De Aza, and Jay Bruce. Granderson's disappointing performance at the plate has only gotten worse in recent contests, as he's gone just 4-for-29 over the last seven days, bringing his batting average down to a mere .226 for the season.

Granderson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Granderson has started four straight games and 22 of the last 23 overall, so it's likely just a day of rest for the afternoon contest. Brandon Nimmo will take his place in right field.

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.
