Player Notes
Rival executives tell Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports that the Mets are not making Curtis Granderson available.

Advice: Granderson was a massive part of the Mets' operation in 2016, slugging 30 homers with a .799 OPS over 633 plate appearances. He's owed a very reasonable $15 million in 2017, the final year of a four-year, $60 million deal. New York would much rather find a trade partner for Jay Bruce.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday that Curtis Granderson would be the starting center fielder if the season started today.

Advice: It doesn't and a lot could change between now and then. The Mets would prefer to trade Jay Bruce after re-signing Yoenis Cespedes last week, but Granderson is also drawing interest around the league. Juan Lagares is the only true center fielder on the Mets' roster, but he hasn't shown an ability hit consistently against right-handed pitching. Michael Conforto could also see time in center field depending on how things shake out.

Mark Carig of Newsday reports that the Mets prefer a reliever with team control and a prospect in any potential trade for Curtis Granderson or Jay Bruce.

Advice: The Mets are stockpiled with talent in their outfield, and they're planning on moving quickly this winter to jettison either Granderson or Bruce. With the uncertainty looming around the potential suspension of Jeurys Familia, the club has made it a priority to upgrade the backend of their bullpen.

According to Newsday's Marc Carig, the Mets are "positioned to move fairly quickly" in regards to trading either Curtis Granderson or Jay Bruce.

Advice: The Mets' outfield is already well-stocked with Yoenis Cespedes coming back and up-and-comers Michael Conforto and Brandon Nimmo ready to take on bigger roles. That makes Bruce and Granderson expendable, though the most likely scenario is that New York will trade one and keep the other. The Blue Jays, who are likely to lose Jose Bautista in free agency, have already shown a keen interest in Granderson. He could be playing for a new team by the end of the Winter Meetings.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that Curtis Granderson is of interest to the Blue Jays.

Advice: The Mets are also shopping Jay Bruce after re-signing Cespedes, so the Blue Jays have interest in both of them depending on the possible asking price. The Mets would surely prefer to keep Granderson because he's capable of playing center field and is a proven performer in New York, but he's reportedly drawing more interest than Bruce. In addition to the trade market, the Blue Jays have shown interest in Dexter Fowler, among others, in free agency.

Marc Carig of Newsday reports that Curtis Granderson has received more trade interest than Jay Bruce.

Advice: The Mets managed to keep Yoenis Cespedes with a four-year, $110 million contract, so most have speculated that the next step will be to trade Bruce. Teams like the Blue Jays have reportedly expressed interest, but the inquiries on Granderson simply give them more options to upgrade in other areas. Both players are due to become free agents after 2017. Granderson, who turns 36 next March, slugged 30 homers with a .799 OPS (111 OPS+) in 2016. He's owed $15 million next season.

Marc Carig of Newsday hears "it's possible" Curtis Granderson gets moved.

Advice: Jay Bruce feels like the Mets' most obvious trade chip following the re-signing of Yoenis Cespedes, but the team will also apparently shop Granderson (and his $15 million salary for 2017). Granderson is coming off a season in which he slugged 30 home runs and played in 150 games, but he does turn 36 years old next March. Michael Conforto is probably off the table for New York this winter.
