Curtis Granderson won't be headed to Chicago after agreeing to a four-year deal with the Mets worth $60 million pending a physical, according to multiple reports.

The 32-year-old outfielder declined the Yankees one-year, $14.1 million offer and became a free agent. He was a potential candidate to come play in his hometown for the Cubs or White Sox.

Granderson started his career in 2004 with the Detroit Tigers and spent the last four seasons as a member of the Yankees.

Last season, he only played in 61 games due to injuries which resulted in career lows in home runs, RBI and batting average. However, in the previous two years, Granderson set career highs with 43 homers in 2012 and 119 RBI in 2011.
