Marlins Sign Curtis Granderson to Minor League Deal

The Miami Marlins announced Tuesday morning that they have signed outfielder and former Met Curtis Granderson to a minor league deal with an invitation to Spring Training.

Granderson, 38 in March, split last year between the Toronto Blue Jays and Milwaukee Brewers, and hit a combined .242/.351/.431 with 13 homers and 38 RBI.

The Illinois native spent three and a half seasons in the Mets organization from 2014-2017, where he was a beacon of health and hit 20+ homers in three seasons.

The 15-year veteran will look to compete for a roster spot on a young and rebuilding Marlins team.

He will join former Met Neil Walker on the Marlins who signed with Miami last month.
