Granderson is not in the lineup against the Athletics on Saturday. With left-hander Sean Manaea on the hill for Oakland, Granderson will take a seat on the bench in favor of Dwight Smith. Look for Granderson to start Sunday's series finale with righty Daniel Mengden set to pitch.
Granderson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports. Granderson has been on the bench for all three games of the series with the Red Sox bringing lefty starters to the hill each time out. The veteran's move to the bench has allowed Anthony Alford to see steady at-bats this weekend in the corner outfield, but Granderson should reclaim a starting role and serve as the Blue Jays' leadoff man in the club's next contest Tuesday against the Mets and ace righty Noah Syndergaard.
Granderson is out of the lineup against Boston on Friday. Granderson will head to the bench with left-hander Chris Sale on the mound for the first of a three-game set. In his absence, Anthony Alford will make a start in left field and bat seventh in the order. With David Price (hand) and Drew Pomeranz scheduled to pitch for Boston this weekend, Granderson may not see much action this series.
Granderson (hamstring) is batting leadoff and playing left field Thursday against the Mariners, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Granderson has been sidelined since injuring his hamstring in Friday's contest. He'll return to the lineup as he looks to build off the strong .936 OPS he holds through 94 plate appearances.
Granderson (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Seattle, Shannon Drayer of MyNorthwest.com reports. With left-hander Wade LeBlanc throwing for the Mariners, it was unlikely that Granderson would return to the starting lineup anyway. Granderson will be available off the bench and could return to the lineup for Thursday's series finale with right-hander Mike Leake scheduled to pitch.
