With Cano off the books, it looks like the Yankees have some cash to spend on offense. That offense won’t come from Granderson though, who will now have to hit home runs in the spacious Citi Field.
The left-handed slugger hit .245/.335/.495 in 4 seasons with the Yankees, 115 home runs, and a 120 OPS+. He was also a base stealing threat, up until his last two seasons, stealing a total of 55 bases in his Yankee career. His best season was 2011, when he hit 41 home runs and a .262/.364/.552 slash good for a 6.7 fWAR. Fluke injuries killed his 2013 season, but Granderson still has huge rebound potential. He’s a great representative of the game, and it’ll be nice to see him still playing in New York.
