NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says free-agent outfielder Curtis Granderson and the New York Mets have agreed to a $60 million, four-year contract.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was pending a physical and no announcement had been made.
The agreement was first reported by the New York Post.
The 32-year-old Granderson comes over from the crosstown Yankees, giving the Mets much-needed power in their punchless outfield. He batted .229 with seven homers and 15 RBIs this year, when injuries limited him to 61 games. But he surpassed 40 homers in each of the previous two seasons.
The move marks general manager Sandy Alderson's most expensive free-agent signing - by far - after three years of bargain shopping as the Mets were rebuilding.
