— Player Notes
Advice: The deal was agreed to last week and has now become official with Granderson passing a physical. The outfielder surely would have gotten a bigger deal had he stayed healthy in 2013, but he still managed to snag $60 million after a lost season. Granderson will add some much-needed punch to the Mets' lineup.8 hours ago Rotoworld
Advice: Granderson and the Mets reportedly agreed to a four-year, $60 million deal on Friday. He'll provide much needed left-handed pop in the middle of the Mets lineup, and perhaps a move away from Yankee Stadium will lead to him utilizing the whole field more, which should provide an uptick in his batting average.

Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal is saying the deal is for $60 million. Granderson had been looking for a four-year, $64 million deal, with the Mets preferring three years. Obviously, middle ground was met. Granderson was limited to 61 games in 2013 due to injuries, but he's an impact bat when healthy, possessing a pair of 40-homer seasons under his belt.

Advice: From all indications, Granderson is more advanced in talks with the Mets than any other team, but there's still a difference of opinion on the years involved. While the 32-year-old outfielder wants a four-year deal, reportedly for around $64 million, the Mets are holding firm at three years for now. The Red Sox and Mariners are among the other teams who have expressed interest in Granderson, but it's unclear if any of them would be willing to go to four years, either. The Mets still appear to be the favorites.

Advice: All signs point to the two sides agreeing to a contract soon. Granderson has drawn interest from a number of teams in free agency -- including the White Sox, Mariners and Red Sox -- but the Mets seem willing to outbid all of them. Granderson was limited to 61 games in 2013 due to injuries, but he's an impact bat when healthy. The veteran outfielder will likely command around $15 million annually.

Advice: A move isn't imminent, Carig writes, but the Mets are growing increasingly optimistic they'll land the 32-year-old. The terms of any potential deal are still unknown, but a three-to-four year deal worth at least $15 million per year was what one industry executive guessed. That would likely be within the Mets' range, and Granderson could be the team's best option at landing an impact bat this offseason. The White Sox and Mariners have also been reported as teams interested in the outfielder.

Advice: The Red Sox haven't ruled out making a run at Granderson, but it doesn't sound like they are a serious possibility at this time. The 32-year-old outfielder is said to be looking for a four-year deal. Puma hears that the Mets would likely make a run at Nelson Cruz if Granderson ends up signing elsewhere.

Advice: Jacoby Ellsbury landed with the Yankees, so the Red Sox are currently looking at an outfield of Shane Victorino, Jonny Gomes, Daniel Nava, and Jackie Bradley, Jr. Granderson would provide Boston with some flexibility and a legitimate power threat, but it's unclear whether they are willing to give him the dollars and years he wants. He's reportedly aiming to get a four-year deal. Still, he would come a lot cheaper than Shin-Soo Choo. The Mets are reportedly heavily involved in talks with Granderson.

Advice: This comes on the heels of Mets general manager Sandy Alderson meeting Granderson for dinner on Sunday. The Mets currently hope to land him on a three-year contract, but they may be willing to concede a fourth year in order to get the deal done. Rubin was told by another source that the two sides are talking, but that nothing is imminent.

Advice: This would appear to indicate that Granderson's asking price could be a fit for the Mets. The 32-year-old is reportedly seeking a three-year deal and shouldn't have a problem finding it, even after a pair of freak injuries limited him to 66 games in 2013.
