Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson exited today’s game in the third inning after being struck on the right knee by a Lance Lynn pitch.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Granderson has a bruise and swelling, and when asked about his status the 34-year-old veteran said “we’ll see how it feels tomorrow.”

Granderson has had a huge spring training, hitting .435 with three homers and twice as many walks and strikeouts. That’s quite a change from his first Mets season, in which he hit .227 with 20 homers and a .714 OPS while striking out 141 times compared to 79 walks in 155 games.
