Outfielder Curtis Granderson and the New York Mets agreed today on a four-year deal worth $60 million, according to published reports.
Injuries limited Granderson to only seven home runs and 15 RBIs in 61 games and 214 at-bats last season with the New York Yankees, but his two prior seasons were his best. In 2012, Granderson hit a career-high 43 home runs and drove in 106 RBIs. He drove in a career-high 119 runs with 41 home runs in 2011. He also scored 136 runs in 2011, tops in his 10-year career. Granderson, 32, spent the past four seasons with the Yankees after playing the previous six with the Detroit Tigers.
His departure means the Yankees have lost two high-profile players in one day. Former second baseman Robinson Cano inked a deal with the Seattle Mariners on Friday.
