Mets' Curtis Granderson: Drawing interest from Blue Jays

The Blue Jays are expressing interest in possibly acquiring Granderson through a trade with the Mets, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

It's no secret the Jays are looking to add a left-handed bat to assume the leadoff role in their 2017 lineup. The Mets have a surplus of outfielders after Yoenis Cespedes agreed to a four-year, $110 million deal on Tuesday, making Granderson expendable. He'll enter his 13th MLB season at the age of 36, and Father Time appears to be chasing the veteran. Over Granderson's past three seasons in New York, he's hit .241 with a .799 OPS -- both of which are below his career averages of .255 and .814, respectively. Additionally, Granderson's four steals in 2016 was his lowest total in any season in which he's played 50-plus games.
