Dodgers Claim Pitcher From Astros, Ship Another Off To Mets

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Reports began coming out over Twitter from journalists, before the team officially tweeted out the transaction. "I'm still going to come out ready to play and try to help that team out just like I was trying to help this team out". There has been a glut in the outfield for quite a few years, but injuries to Andre Ethier, Scott Van Slyke, and Andew Toles meant that Chris Taylor an infielder was converted into an outfielder this season.

"Curtis Granderson is a huge addition, a real coup for us", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.

Granderson also gives the Dodgers yet another useful lefty bat, to go along with Bellinger, Cory Seager, Chase Utley, switch-hitting Yasmani Grandal, and (if you feel like being generous) Adrián González and Pederson.

"Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to do that this year", Granderson said. He's struck out an eye-raising 509 in 421.0 innings and limited opponents to a.228 batting average.

New York Mets right fielder Curtis Granderson (3) runs to first base during the first inning of a spring training baseball game against the Detroit Tigers at Joker Marchant Stadium.

L.A. enters Saturday an incredible 52 games over.500 at 86-34 and is on pace for 116 wins, which would tie the 1906 Chicago Cubs and 2001 Seattle Mariners for the most regular season wins in major league history.

He hit 26 home runs as a rookie in 2015 and was named to the National League All-Star team, but a massive second-half slump resulted in him hitting.210 that season.
