Granderson got the start in center field again Thursday, hitting leadoff and going 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and a solo home run in a loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Mets manager Terry Collins needs all the offense he can get in his lineup, so Granderson could continue to see regular at-bats as long as he stays hot. The veteran outfielder is now slashing .313/.450/.688 in June with five homers, eight RBI, eight runs, two steals and an impressive 12:10 BB:K through 19 games.

Granderson went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

With Michael Conforto getting the night off, Granderson slotted back into center field and in the leadoff spot and produced his eighth homer of the year. He now carries a .295/.436/.614 slash line through 18 games in June but barring another injury in the Mets' starting outfield, the 36-year-old will find regular playing time tough to come by moving forward.

Granderson will be the fourth outfielder with Yoenis Cespedes healthy, Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record reports Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The writing was on the wall, as Granderson has been steadily losing playing time over the past week. But manager Terry Collins confirmed it Monday: he's planning to roll with Cespedes, Michael Conforto and Jay Bruce as his starting outfielders, which leaves Granderson as the spot starter and lefty bat off the bench.

Granderson went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk and three runs in a win over the Cubs on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

This marks his first multi-hit game of June, but his power's been showing up steadily of late, as Grandy has three homers in his last eight games. He's still only hitting .215 with less-than-special counting stats, though, and Granderson was basically a two-category fantasy asset last year (homers and runs). At age 36, he's firmly in the decline phase; that doesn't mean he can't be rostered in deeper formats, but he's not a starting outfielder in most leagues.

Granderson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Braves, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Yoenis Cespedes is also sitting out Sunday after returning from the disabled list Saturday to play in the front half of the doubleheader, but with the slugger set to assume an everyday role going forward, it likely means that Granderson will be squeezed out of the lineup on a more regular basis. The absence of Cespedes allowed youngster Michael Conforto to emerge as the top hitter in the Mets lineup, while the aging Granderson is sitting on career-worst marks across the board with a .204/.295/.388 slash line over 224 plate appearances.

Granderson is not in Saturday's lineup for the first game of the doubleheader against Atlanta, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

With left-hander Sean Newcomb making his major-league debut, Granderson will sit in favor of Juan Lagares in center. Yoenis Cespedes also makes his return from a seven-week stint on the disabled list (hamstring), giving Granderson his first day off since May 17.

Granderson went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a pair of walks in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The homer came in garbage time with the Mets down by five runs in the ninth inning, but it also came off a fine pitcher in Rangers closer Matt Bush. Granderson hadn't homered since May 21, but he's been improving steadily nonetheless -- after hitting just .159/.230/.304 through his first 40 games, the veteran has recovered over the past 15, going 16-for-49 (.327) with a 10:11 BB:K. He's still barely hitting over the Mendoza Line for the season, but it offers some hope that fantasy owners can squeeze some value out of Grandy yet. That said, he's probably going to find starts awfully hard to come by once Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) come off the DL.

Granderson went 2-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

He's now hitting .361/.429/.611 over his last 10 games, pulling his season batting average up to .201 -- the first time it's been over ,200 since April 13. Granderson's hot streak comes just as the Mets' outfield is about to get crowded again with Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring/quad) potentially returning from the DL after next week's road trip.

Granderson went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The 36-year-old is working on a modest five-game hitting streak and now sports a respectable .263/.360/.526 slash line in May with three homers, 13 RBI and 15 runs. Granderson received a bit of a reprieve when Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring/quad) had a setback in his rehab, but the veteran will need to keep hitting if he wants to stay in the starting lineup when Cespedes is healthy.

Granderson went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

The blast was his fourth of the season, but it may be too little too late. Yoenis Cespedes (hamstring) is close to returning to action, and Granderson's .169/.237/.338 slash line on the year makes him the obvious candidate to lose his starting job when Cespedes comes off the DL.
