Much maligned for an admittedly sub-par 2010 season at the plate, Curtis Granderson is quietly putting together the makings of a comeback since the All-Star Break.
Including his 2-for-3 afternoon so far today, in the 45 games since the ASB, Granderson has put together a .262/.331/.517 batting line with 10 HR and 21 RBI. He may not make anyone forget about Bernie Williams’s stellar offense in CF but it’s an improvement over his first half .240/.309/.409 with 7 HR and 24 RBI in his first 59 games.
A 130-point improvement in Granderson’s OPS is certainly not a bad thing as the Yankees start gearing up for the playoffs. We can all agree on that, right?
