Also on Tuesday, three-time All-Star outfielder Curtis Granderson
officially became a member of the New York Mets after signing a

Granderson, 32, is a career .261 hitter with six seasons of
at least 20 home runs and ranks fifth in the majors since 2011
with a homer every 15.3 at-bats.
Winner of the Silver Slugger award in 2011, he became a free
agent when his contract with the New York Yankees expired after
the 2013 season.
"He brings a personality. He brings credibility. He brings
experience, and he brings talent," Mets general manager Sandy
Alderson said of Granderson.
