Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday that he expects Curtis Granderson (ribs) back in the lineup on Saturday.

Granderson injured his ribs, forearm and knee when he collided with the wall during Monday's game. He's missing a second straight start Wednesday and evidently will sit out Friday, as well, following Thursday's off day. The offseason signee will return to a .170/.291/.319 batting line with one homer and four RBI on Saturday.

Curtis Granderson (ribs) remained out of the Mets' lineup Wednesday.

Granderson banged his ribs, forearm and knee when he collided with the wall during Monday's game. He's now missed two straight starts, but with the off day Thursday he has a shot to be back in there Friday. Andrew Brown is handling right field Wednesday. Travis d'Arnaud is also getting a day off Wednesday, with Anthony Recker filling in at catcher.

Curtis Granderson (ribs) could be available to pinch-hit Tuesday.

Granderson had to exit Monday's game after colliding with the outfield wall, but he's feeling much better a day later. There had been some thought that he might need a DL stint, but obviously that won't be the case.

X-rays on Curtis Granderson (rib cage, forearm, knee) came back negative.

Granderson crashed into the right field while during the first inning of Monday's game against the Diamondbacks. He stayed in the game initially, but the Mets eventually decided to pull him out of concern about his rib cage. He's considered day-to-day, but was in quite a bit of pain after the game. Expect him to miss a couple of days at the very least.

Curtis Granderson will undergo X-rays after leaving Monday's game with rib cage, forearm, and knee contusions.

Granderson slammed into the right field wall while trying to track down a fly ball in the first inning Monday. He actually stayed in the game for five more innings, but the Mets eventually decided to pull him. We'll know more about his status after tests are completed.

Curtis Granderson left Monday's game against the Diamondbacks with an apparent left wrist injury.

Granderson jammed the wrist in the outfield wall while chasing down a Miguel Montero double in the first inning. He stayed in the game for a while and even delivered an RBI single before eventually exiting. The Mets should provide an update on his status after the game.

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

Progress, as Granderson was 0-for-9 with five strikeouts over his first two games with the Mets. The 33-year-old will surely miss Yankee Stadium, but he should still get his fair share of home runs as long as you can live with the low batting average in fantasy leagues.

Curtis Granderson hit a two-run homer and walked Sunday to lead a Mets split-squad past the Nationals 3-1.

Granderson is still hitting like he did in his latter days with the Yankees: he's at .205/.295/.462 in 39 at-bats for the spring. The Mets signed him to drive in runs in the middle of the order, but he'll need to do at least a slightly better job hitting for average if he's going to justify his four-year, $60 million contract.

Curtis Granderson homered in his first two at-bats Tuesday in the Mets' 6-2 defeat of the Astros.

They were the first two homers of the spring for Granderson. He's been focusing on right field this spring, and it looks like he'll play there even if Juan Lagares wins the center field job. In that scenario, Chris Young in right and Granderson in left would probably make a little more sense. However, it's not a big difference either way, and the Mets will want Granderson in right if Eric Young Jr. starts in the outfield (he'd play left, with Chris Young in center).
