Granderson spent time with the New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers last season, his 14th in MLB. He had a .212 batting average, but hit 26 home runs and drove in 64 runs for the season. The Dodgers left him off their World Series roster after he struggled in the playoffs, going just 1-for-15 at the plate.

For his career, Granderson has a .252 average and has hit 319 home runs.

Before joining the Mets in 2014, he had spent his entire career with the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees in the American League.
