Granderson went 1-for-4 with a game-winning solo homer in Friday's 6-5 victory over the Dodgers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran outfielder gained a measure of redemption for both himself and reliever Jeurys Familia with his blast, which came on the heels of the Dodgers knotting the game up in the visitors' half of the ninth on a bases-clearing double. The rest of the 35-year-old's night had been a microcosm of his forgettable month, as he struck out in his other three at-bats. Granderson has slashed .155/.245/.333 over 84 trips to the batter's box in May, which has brought his season average down to the Mendoza Line.

Granderson went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and two walks Saturday against the Brewers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Granderson led off the contest with his eighth homer of the year in a game the Mets had to rally in order to pull out the win. Although the veteran has struggled with a .197 batting average, his fourth homer this month raised his slugging percentage to .420.

Granderson homered, a solo blast, as part of a 2-for-2 game with two walks in a win Tuesday over the Nationals.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Granderson has just a .235 BABIP, which has held him to a .211/.304/.437 batting line, but the power has been there. With seven home runs already, Granderson is now on pace for 30 this season and is in good shape to record his third consecutive 20-homer campaign. There's never a guarantee a 35-year-old hitting into the shift with regularity will overcome a low BABIP, but with the rest of Granderson's game showing up, he's still giving the Mets decent production.

Granderson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Granderson will be given his fourth day off of the season after starting four straight games, and will give way to Alejando De Aza in right field, who will lead off the contest. Granderson has struggled a bit in his age-35 season, as the plate discipline that led to his success in 2015 isn't quite there, as his walk rate decreased from 13.3 to 8.9 percent from 2015 to 2016. More importantly, the OBP mark has fallen from .364 to .287. Granderson will get a day off to clear his head before likely returning to his regular role in Tuesday's series opener against the Nationals.

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

Competitive Edge Analysis

With lefty Alex Wood on the mound for the Dodgers, manager Terry Collins will plug Juan Lagares into Granderson's usual spot in right field Tuesday. Granderson struggles to get on base against lefties to the tune of a .200/.250/.467 slash line against southpaws on the year. He could draw back into the lineup Wednesday when the Mets face right-hander Kenta Maeda.

Granderson hit a leadoff home run, his sixth, in Monday's win over the Dodgers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Granderson finished 2-for-5 on the day but struck out two more times, giving him a 21 percent strikeout rate on the season. Still, the discipline and power are there, as Granderson has walked 10 percent of the time to go with six homers and 13 total extra-base hits. Granderson has never been great at hitting for average, but his strikeout rate is actually below his career average of 22.8 percent. Expect his batting average to move up from its current .215 mark to somewhere closer to his .256 career mark (or his .259 mark from 2015).

Granderson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Giants, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Granderson will get his second day off of the week, this time giving way to Juan Lagares in right field, who will bat atop the order Sunday afternoon. With lefty Madison Bumgarner scheduled to take the hill for the opposing Giants, manager Terry Collins likely wanted to get as many right-handed bats in his lineup as possible. Granderson is just 4-for-18 with two extra-base hits against southpaws this season.

Granderson had two hits, including a triple, and scored the game-winning run in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Reds.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran outfield watched teammate Yoenis Cespedes tie the game up with a three-run homer before doing damage of his own with the three-bagger. He was brought home on a two-out single by David Wright. After a very slow start to the season, Granderson has raised his average to .244 and is working on a seven-game hit streak.

Granderson hit a pair of homers Friday against the Braves, including a grand slam, and drove in five runs in the process.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This was his sixth career grand slam, and while Granderson's average is still low (.210), even for him, he's bringing the power that his owners signed up for. Whenever a righty is on the hill for the opposition, he is a very strong play in daily leagues and season-long alike.
