It would be more noteworthy if the Mets weren’t putting out some early feelers, as they are known to be on the lookout for outfield upgrades and Granderson won’t be nearly expensive as Jacoby Ellsbury or Shin Soo-Choo. The 32-year-old is expected to decline his qualifying offer from the Yankees to test free agency, so he will have draft pick compensation attached, but the Mets would only have to surrender their second-rounder since the club finished with one of the 10 worst records in baseball this past season.
Granderson was limited to just 61 games this season due to injury, but he hit 43 homers last season and 41 the year before. While he would have been looking at a bigger payday if he stayed healthy in his contract year, his power should still land him a nice contract. Our own Matthew Pouliot recently ranked him No. 8 on his top 150 list of free agents.
