Curtis Granderson to work with new Mets hitting coach in offseason
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

New Mets hitting coach Kevin Long said Wednesday he expects to spend some time in the offseason working with outfielder Curtis Granderson, who struggled offensively in 2014.

"The main thing I've seen is his hands are kind of moving more than they did when he was with the Yankees," Long said about Granderson, per ESPN. "So we're going to try to just quiet that down a little bit. They're not really getting into a strong position consistently. So we'll work at that. There's a few little, minor other issues that we'll hit. Curtis, he had some streaks this year where he was really swinging the bat well. We'll just try to maintain a little bit more consistency. 

"You know, I think it's tough, too, the first time you come into an organization and you signed a big contract. I think it's a little more difficult than it might seem. In Curtis' case, that probably played into it. I know Brian McCann, as this season progressed over with the Yankees, he got better and better and more comfortable."

Mets hoping Kevin Long can get Curtis Granderson back on track
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It's safe to say outfielder Curtis Granderson didn't exactly meet expecations in his first year with the Mets after signing a four-year, $60 million free-agent contract prior to the 2014 season. The veteran outfielder hit just .227 with a .388 slugging percentage and .714 OPS in 155 games. 

However, Mets manager Terry Collins is optimistic the addition of hitting coach Kevin Long will be beneficial for the veteran outfielder. The duo worked together when they were with the Yankees, Granderson hit 84 home runs over 2011 and 2012 with Long helping with his approach.

"I'm hoping," Mets manager Terry Collins told NJ.com. "I'm certainly hoping. One thing (Long) said is that Yankee Stadium helped Curtis a lot but there are some things that they did that kept him a little bit more consistent. I'm hoping he can carry it over here."

Curtis Granderson joins 20 home run club
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson joined the 20 home run club Friday night at home against the Astros. It is his first season with 20-plus home runs since 2012.

Granderson took Brad Peacock deep for a solo home run in the fourth inning. He finished 1 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI in a 3-1 defeat. He owns a .230/.329/.393 slash line with 66 RBI and eight stolen bases over 557 at-bats.

Curtis Granderson at a loss to explain struggles
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson has expressed frustration over the stuggles he has been forced to endure most of the season.

Granderson is batting just .210 with a .667 OPS - both numbers put him on pace for career-lows. The power bat the Mets were expecting when they signed him has hit just 16 home runs. He has fanned 126 times in 486 at-bats.

There have been more valleys that peaks. Granderson batted .136 in April and is at .155 since the All-Star break. But he hit .274 with 13 taters from May 1 to mid-July. He is at a loss to explain what has happened since.

"Honesty, not too sure," he told the Newark Star-Ledger. "It's not the first time in my career where it's been like that. There's been times where I've gone through some long stretches where things don't necessarily go the way I want them to. But the big question even then and now is still why? I'm not 100 percent sure."

Mets batting coach Lamar Johnson seems to have an idea.

"Sometimes you just overswing," he said. "Sometimes he tries to get two hits with one swing."

Scuffling Curtis Granderson sitting Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Struggling Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson has been benched for the Wednesday night game in Miami.

Granderson, who is prone to long droughts, is certainly in the midst of one. He is 2 for 36 without an RBI since Aug. 22. His average of .210 is at its lowest point since June 2.
