Los Angeles Dodgers pluck Curtis Granderson from Mets

AmericaJR's Jason Rzucidlo was LIVE at Comerica Park for the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Detroit Tigers MLB baseball game on Sunday afternoon.

After beating the Detroit Tigers Friday night to push their league leading record to 86-34, the Los Angeles Dodgers are reportedly involved in a trade that will bring outfielder from the New York Mets to the Dodgers. "But an opportunity to be able to go play in the postseason is exciting". But in 71 games since May 21, Granderson has hit.276 with a.300 on-base percentage and.603 slugging percentage thanks to 31 extra-base hits (13 doubles, two triples, 16 home runs). Floro was claimed on waivers from the Chicago Cubs earlier this month and appeared in three games with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

During his six seasons with the Detroit Tigers, Curtis Granderson was a fan favorite not only because of his play on the field but because of how he treated people off of the field. Granderson has 19 home runs 52 runs batted in, the home runs would be tied for third on the Dodgers with Corey Seager.

"A little bittersweet", Granderson said before exchanging hugs and phone numbers with now ex-teammates such as Robert Gsellman and Wilmer Flores.

The 36-year old outfielder is in the final season of a four-year, $60 million contract and became one of the last veterans left on a team that moved Lucas Duda and Neil Walker.
