Worth noting

• Several scouts have concluded Curtis Granderson is hitting more balls than usual -- for him -- to left-center-field during batting practice. They suggest he realizes the dimensions of Citi Field are not conducive to left-handed power hitting.

"Then they don't know me, they haven't watched me enough," Granderson said in response. "I've always worked on my swing the same way. There are a lot of hits in left-center."
