Report: Yankees to pick up Curtis Granderson's $15M option

Saturday October 20th, 2012

The Yankees will pick up the $15 million 2013 club option on Curtis Granderson's contract, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Granderson enjoyed a productive 2012 regular season, hitting 43 home runs and driving in 106 RBIs, but suffered through a postseason slump that left him out of the starting lineup in Game 4 of the Tigers' ALCS sweep of the Yankees. Granderson, a former Tiger, was 0-for-11 in the series.

Will Granderson's late slide stick with him into the off-season?

“No, you go ahead and reset,” Granderson said. “You get done with it and move on from it. You can’t let the past go ahead and linger on, or else you’ll be right back there again. You learn from it and move on from it.”
