Terry Collins is considering moving Curtis Granderson out of the cleanup spot, the manager said after Saturday’s game.
Update 10:30 a.m.: Granderson will bat second on Sunday. Daniel Murphy will bat cleanup.
Granderson, who signed a four-year, $60 million deal this past winter, went 0-for-5 earlier in the night. He left six runners on base.
He is now batting .140 with four RBI. He has struck out in nearly 30% of his plate appearances this season.
Collins met with Granderson before Saturday’s game. He told Collins he is not pressing, and he trusts that things will begin to turn around for him at the plate.
