Curtis Granderson Will Get His Eyes Checked Because There Needs To Be A Reason People UnderstandSean Newell10/21/12 3:30pmFiled to: Curtis GrandersonNew York YankeesCurtis granderson eye sightNewsSportsGettypic10EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkCurtis Granderson has had vision-related issues before. When he was traded to the Yankees, he soon discovered that he had 20-30 vision and quickly began wearing contact lenses. This year, Granderson had an absolutely wretched postseason. He had three hits in 33 plate appearances and struck out 16 times.
