Curtis Granderson remains out of the Mets’ lineup this afternoon against the Padres. He has now missed three straight starts due to a left calf injury.
Granderson drew an intentional walk as a pinch-hitter in Thursday’s extra-inning loss to the Brewers, but he didn’t appear in last night’s series opener against the Padres. There hasn’t been any talk of a stint on the disabled list yet, but Mets manager Terry Collins doesn’t want to push him out there too soon and make things worse. The hope is that he’ll be ready to go in another day or so.
After signing a four-year, $60 million contract with the Mets over the winter, Granderson got off to a dreadful start with his new team, but he’s batting .273/.387/.461 with seven home runs and 25 RBI over his last 45 games. 40-year-old Bobby Abreu, who went 4-for-4 last night, will make his second straight start out of the cleanup spot with Granderson sidelined.
