Original Report

Mets right fielder Curtis Granderson skipped Monday morning’s team workouts with what the team is calling an an eye issue.

It’s unclear how serious the issue is but the team will update reporters later today after Granderson is examined by doctors. Manager Terry Collins believes he could be suffering from pink eye.

“He came today, it was pretty red,” Collins said. “To be cautious, pink eye can be very contagious, so we sent him to the doctor to see what it was.”

Granderson underwent surgery in November to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb that he played through during the World Series. He is 100 percent healed from that procedure and arrived to camp healthy.
