Curtis Granderson named Blue Jays’ 2018 Heart and Hustle recipient

The day's top plays, including Jake Marisnick robbing Chris Taylor of a home run and Kevin Kiermaier making an incredible tumbling grab.

Toronto Blue Jays veteran outfielder Curtis Granderson has been named the team’s Heart and Hustle Award recipient by the MLBPAA.

The Heart and Hustle Award honours an active player from each of MLB’s 30 teams who “demonstrates a passion for the game of baseball and best embodies the values, spirit and traditions of the game.”

Of the 30 individual team winners, an overall winner will be selected on Nov. 8 at the 19th annual Youth Dinner in New York City.

This is Granderson’s first season with the Blue Jays after signing a one-year $5-million contract with the club back in January.

This season, the 37-year-old is batting .235/.333/.418 with 10 home runs and 31 RBI in 310 plate appearances.
