Areas for improvement?
Granderson will be 37 at the start of the 2018 season. I’m not sure how much longer he plans to stay in the majors before retiring. But if he does plan on sticking around a bit longer, I would say he needs to at least try and get that batting average up to what it once was. There’s no doubt that this becomes more difficult to do as time goes by. But maybe a change of scenery and hitting coaches can help him get back on track. There can be a lot of pressure to perform after being traded to a big market team that’s right in the middle of not just a postseason run, but one of their best franchise seasons to date. So it’s understandable that while Grandy had his moments in LA, there was also some significant drop off as well.
