TUESDAY: Mike Puma of the New York post tweets that Alderson did not make an offer to Granderson during their meeting, but could make an offer sometime this week (Twitter link).
MONDAY: Mets GM Sandy Alderson met yesterday with free agent outfielder Curtis Granderson, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter). Granderson, who will turn 33 in March, is represented by Matt Brown of Pro Prospects, Inc.
The Mets entered the offseason with an apparent need at the corner outfield, though they have already added one player who can man a spot in Chris Young. Granderson had an injury-shortened 2013, but hit over forty home runs in both 2011-12. His 2013 triple-slash was .229/.317/.407 over 245 plate appearances.
Though Granderson would only cost the Mets a second rounder to sign, since the club's first-round choice is protected, he may well require a relatively lengthy deal. Granderson is seeking a minimum of three years, tweets Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. And at least one industry source believes he could get four or even five years, reports Marc Carig of Newsday (via Twitter).
