Duda was traded to the Rays on Thursday in exchange for RHP Drew Smith.
Granderson jokingly said the Instagram trade would include the Mets acquiring a sting ray, but added that the deal will include the donation of Rays tickets to a community group of Duda's choosing.
The time has come. We are closing in on the terms of our trade of @WeFollowLucasDuda to @raysbaseball. Deal includes a Sting Ray in the Ray Touch Pool to be named later & a donation of #Rays tickets to a community group of Duda's choosing (hopefully our #GrandKids in the Tampa Bay Area in celebration of #GK10)! Undisclosed rights to remain in our (founders) possession - so @Mets fans, Duda can run to the Sunshine State, but he can't hide!
Granderson posted from the account shortly after the trade of Duda was announced.
On Saturday, Rays reliever Sergio Romo posted an Instagram of him following Duda around, which was re-grammed by Granderson from the @WeFollowLucasDuda account, with Granderson saying the Mets were in "heated negotations" to trade the account to the Rays.
