Granderson leaves Mets camp with 'eye issue'

The Mets outfielder left Tuesday's workout to tend to a medical problem with his eye.

Curtis Granderson has been a model of durability during his first two seasons with the Amazin's, sitting for just 12 games over that span. So when reports surfaced that the 34-year old veteran outfielder left Spring Training to tend to an eye issue, Met fans braced for bad news.

Luckily it appears Granderson is reportedly battling pink eye and the team expressed concerns over it spreading to other members of the club. Granderson's eyes are his lifeline especially when he's tracking a 98-MPH fastball that is headed for the outside corner of the plate. 

By all accounts, this medical setback will not be a long-term issue and the man nicknamed "Grandy Man" should be back before you know it.
