Granderson Arrives At Camp With Healthy Thumb

Curtis Granderson arrived in camp on Monday and reported his surgically repaired thumb is completely healthy.

In a video interview posted by Adam Rubin, Granderson said, “Hand’s all good. Met with the doctors, that would have been, middle of December to get the brace off and everything, and was instructed that really no physical therapy was needed. Just normal movement was going to go ahead and strengthen it right back up.”

“I’ve been working out, started hitting again in January like I normally do, all baseball activities as normal.”

Granderson injured the thumb in game three of the NLCS, but didn’t have surgery until shortly after the World Series ended.

Last season Granderson hit .259/.364/.457 with 26 HR, 70 RBIs, and 91 walks in 157 games.

I’m looking forward to having an outfield of a healthy Granderson, Yoenis Cespedes, Juan Lagares, Michael Conforto, and Alejandro De Aza this year. Let’s go Mets!
