Adam Dunn was a career .300 hitter in the minors too, not every hitter who hits .300 in the minors figures it out in the majors.
True, and also true that this effect is more pronounced in lefties. Dunn is not a good comparison in that his flyball tendencies are very different from Granderson. Furthermore, Dunn's high OBP despite low BA has meant that there is little platoon advantage. With Granderson, there will likely be some differences.
If he figures out lefties, then his BA will rise and he will finish closer to the 270-280 range. If he doesn't, it is likely he will become a platoon player, since he does not have a strong enough BB rate to merit starting as Dunn does.
Or, maybe he both improves pitch recognition and ability to hit lefties and increases both his BB and BA...then he becomes very valuable.
