Curtis Granderson's new contract does not include no trade clause

Yesterday was a wild and interesting day in the world of Major League Baseball. But hey, that’s the off-season for you.

We’ve seen deals such as Robinson Cano heading to the Seattle Mariners, Scott Feldman landing with the Houston Astros and Carlos Beltran heading to the New York Yankees in a not so surprising move.

Then there was this move. A move that has been in the works for at least a week now. The Mets were obviously looking to add some power to their outfield and lineup, so they brought in Chris Young now Curtis Granderson.

Granderson agree’d on a four year contract worth $60 million after missing a huge chunk of the year in his final season as a Yankee. Curtis will provide this Mets team with some good left handed power, something they need.

Now according to Jon Heyman on Twitter, Granderson’s deal does not include a no-trade clause But I don’t think he’ll be traded.

Hopefully Curtis will have a bounce back year after suffering a broken knuckle and forearm.
