Los Angeles Dodgers land Curtis Granderson from New York Mets

The Mets announced that they traded Granderson and cash considerations to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The Dodgers didn't give up a whole lot to get him, but, then, they don't exactly need him, either-the Dodgers are deep with quality outfielders, such that they've started Cody Bellinger at first base in 30 of their last 32 games. The three-time All-Star (2009, '11, '12) and 2011 Silver Slugger also won the 2016 Roberto Clemente Award for his community work. "But to get an opportunity to play into the postseason is going to be exciting". Verlander and Maeda were throwing dueling no-hitters at this point, so Granderson's home run broke up the no-hitter on Verlander's side.

Granderson batted just.228 in 111 games with NY this season but has hit 19 home runs and driven in 52 runs.

To make room on the 40-man roster, Los Angeles designated right-hander Dylan Floro for assignment.

And with that deal, the exodus from the Mets' clubhouse of veteran players continued less than a week after the Mets sent Neil Walker to the Milwaukee Brewers.

He sends a raven to the Citadel where the archmaesters are more than a little skeptical of his tales of the walking dead. Now you must know, beyond this, you'll be reading spoilers so if you don't want to know, might as well skip the story.

During his six seasons with the Detroit Tigers, Curtis Granderson was a fan favorite not only because of his play on the field but because of how he treated people off of the field.

"I'm excited", Granderson said.

Granderson, at 36 years old, also brings another veteran presence to the team seeking it's first World Series win in 29 years.

"It's been a great four years with the Mets organization", Granderson said.
