Curtis Granderson is staying away from Mets camp because he has pinkeye

Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson skipped Monday’s workout with what the team called a minor eye issue and now he’s been diagnosed with pinkeye, so he’ll stay away from camp for a while longer.

Pinkeye is a common and not particularly serious problem, but it’s also contagious and because of that the Mets can’t risk Granderson being around anyone else.

He’s officially listed as day-to-day with conjunctivitis in his right eye and the typical recovery period is 7-10 days.
