Mets' Curtis Granderson: Relegated to reserve role

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

The writing was on the wall, as Granderson has steadily been losing playing time over the past week. But manager Terry Collins confirmed Monday that 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.
