One of just three remaining active players from the 2006 Tigers, Curtis Granderson has put together a very solid MLB career.
Originally drafted by the Tigers back in 2002, Granderson made his big league debut two short seasons later.
He saw limited action in 2004 and 2005, but put together his first full season in 2006. As the everyday centerfielder and leadoff hitter, Granderson slashed .260/.335/.438 with 19 home runs and eight stolen bases. He led the league in strikeouts that year, a trend that has continued to haunt him throughout his career.
He hit well in the playoffs until the World Series rolled around, when he went 2-for-21.
2006 was just the beginning for Granderson, as his 2007 was one for the record books. Granderson stuffed the stat sheet, hitting 38 doubles, 23 triples, 23 home runs and stealing 20 bases. His 20-20-20-20 season puts him in an extremely exclusive club. Granderson also hit .302 and finished 10th in MVP voting that season.
Granderson spent two more years in the Motor City, leading the league in triples with 13 in 2008 and making the All-Star team in 2009, while blasting 30 home runs.
Granderson spent the next four seasons as a Yankee, posting back to back 40 home run seasons and winning the 2011 Silver Slugger Award. He was with the Mets from 2014 until midway through last season, when he was traded to the Dodgers.
Granderson reportedly signed a one-year deal with the Toronto Blue Jays to continue his career.
