Curtis Granderson began his 14th year in the major leagues as the starting Mets centerfielder. Playing a 36-year-old in center is not an ideal situation.
The Mets defense finished 2016 with a .985 fielding percentage. The National League average was .984. Fielding percentage is the percentage of times that a player handles a batted or thrown ball. It is calculated by the sum of putouts and assists divided by the number of total chances (putouts + assists + errors).
