Curtis Granderson LF/CF.. NYM 10 Days

Granderson, out of the starting lineup in two of the Mets' previous four games, is in the lineup, batting sixth, Friday against the Reds.

Granderson is batting sixth for the first time since June 1, as his struggles, including a .210/.313/.354 line, have basically forced manager Terry Collins to move him down in the order. Granderson went through a radical redesign of his swing after the 2010 season and responded with big years in 2011-12 before an injury-plagued 2013. He may need to go through a similar off-season adjustment for the Mets to obtain a decent return on the four-year, $60-million contract they gave Granderson this past off-season.
