Granderson did not start Thursday's game due to a ‘calf issue,’ though he did pinch hit later in the game.
He was on field doing a pre-game work with teammates, "so this does not appear to be a serious left calf issue," reporter Adam Rubin said on Twitter before the game (ESPN, June 13).
Granderson is hitting .281 in 135 at bats with seven HR and 23 RBI with a .389 on-base percentage since May 1.
Clearly, Granderson is going to be fine. The lineup, however, is a different story... I mean, look at it. If you had told me on the last day of last season that Bobby Abreu, Chris Young and Lucas Duda would comprise the heart of this year's order, on any date, let alone June 13, I would never have believed you. Yet, here we. Godspeed, Terry, I guess this lineup is as good of any at this point...
