Dodgers get OF Granderson in trade with Mets

Dodgers get OF Granderson in trade with Mets Dodgers get OF Granderson in trade with Mets

Granderson, 36, was acquired by the Los Angeles Dodgers late Friday night.

The Dodgers made room for Granderson by optioning former All Star centerfielder Joc Pederson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The Mets announced that they traded Granderson and cash considerations to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

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.

"It's been a great four years here with the Mets organization", Granderson said, shaking hands and hugging teammates and staff members in the Mets' clubhouse early Saturday morning.

But he is hitting just.215 with 11 home runs and three stolen bases for the Dodgers this season. "But an opportunity to be able to go play in the postseason is exciting". "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". At the very least, Granderson could spell the starters down the stretch and provide the team with a left-handed power bat in the playoffs, something no contender ever considers a bad thing.

This move is similar to the moves the Dodgers have made in the past during the waiver trade deadline, in 2015 they acquired veteran Chase Utley, and previous year it was veteran catcher Carlos Ruiz.

"Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to do that this year", Granderson said.
