Yankees could reunite with Curtis Granderson?

Curtis Granderson

This trade deadline could just see Curtis Granderson back in pinstripes.

Fancred’s Jon Heyman reported on Sunday that the New York Yankees are looking for another outfield slugger in the wake of recent injuries to Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, and Clint Frazier. Heyman also goes on to mention Granderson specifically as a potential fit.

The 37-year-old Granderson, who is currently with the Toronto Blue Jays, played with the Yankees from 2010 to 2013. There he had some of his peak seasons, making two All-Star teams and leading the AL in RBIs in 2011.

Granderson’s numbers have really tailed off in recent years though — he’s batting just .234 with 86 strikeouts in 85 games this year. But he might be able to provide the Yankees with some short-term production as a low-risk acquisition who will be a free agent after the season. Furthermore, this could be Granderson’s chance to finally bury the hatchet with the local fans.
