Granderson's arrival gives the Dodgers a ton of outfield depth, and Pederson's struggles mixed with his general lack of positional flexibility made him expendable.

The move came after the Dodgers acquired veteran outfielder Curtis Granderson from the New York Mets in a trade Friday for cash considerations and a player to be named later.

Granderson found out about the trade on Friday night following the Mets loss against the Miami Marlins.

Granderson batted just.228 in 111 games with NY this season but has hit 19 home runs and driven in 52 runs.

Murray hears that the club is interested in re-signing the right-hander, whose two-year, $26 million contract is set to expire with the end of the 2017 season. He also has played in 51 postseason games, tied for the 14th most among active players.

But Granderson became expendable on a team committed to rebuilding.

Granderson, at 36 years old, also brings another veteran presence to the team seeking it's first World Series win in 29 years.

Granderson stayed through the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but rumors surfaced again after he cleared waivers in August.

"Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to do that this year", Granderson said.
