The Milwaukee Brewers have "shown interest" in New York Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson, but the talks have "yet to advance," tweets veteran writer Ken Rosenthal.

Rumor CentralGranderson, who is in the final months of a four-year, $60 million deal, is hitting just .225/.327/.453 with 13 homers. He could provide depth in center field, where the Brewers are hitting a major league low .222.

Recently promoted Lewis Brinson has started the past two games in center in place of Keon Broxton (.218 BA, .294 OBP).

The 36-year-old Granderson is one of several available Mets with expiring contracts, a group that includes reliever Addison Reed, outfielder Jay Bruce and catcher Rene Rivera. First baseman Lucas Duda was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday.
