Granderson released his own video statement to fans of the Mets that was posted on the team's Twitter feed.
The New York Mets received a player to be named later or cash considerations in return. While he's hitting only.228 this season, he has a very respectable.815 OPS and has slugged 19 home runs in 395 plate appearances. The 36-year-old also is an above-average defender capable of playing all three outfield positions and is a strong clubhouse presence. But Granderson gives manager Dave Roberts yet another option off the bench along with center fielder Enrique Hernandez, and his speed and defense could be valuable assets in the postseason.
On pace to tie the MLB record for wins in a season with 116, they stood 19 games ahead of the second-place Colorado Rockies in the National League West after an 8-5 win Friday night at Detroit.? Granderson was acquired from the Mets late on Friday and is already in Motown with his new club. But the 14-year veteran still took time to thank NY and its fans via Instagram on Saturday morning.
Granderson was in his fourth season with the Mets and 13th overall after four seasons with the Yankees and five with the Tigers. "It's a little bittersweet to do that, but to get an opportunity to go play in the postseason's going to be exciting".
"Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to do that this year", Granderson said.
Bleacher Report notes that Granderson is in the final year of his contract, so while this figures to be a rental, the Dodgers have the luxury of being able to just pony up whatever if they decide they want to keep him around. The Dodgers starting rotation leads the NL in ERA and has not even had its ace Clayton Kershaw the past month.
