Mets | Collin Cowgill was overswinging

New York Mets OF Collin Cowgill was sent to the minors because he was overswinging after hitting a grand slam on opening day. OF Andrew Brown was brought up to breathe life into the outfield. Collins mentioned how Brown was hitting lefties well at Triple-A Las Vegas. Brown was hitting .286 (8-for-28) against lefties and .400 (28-for-70) against righties.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Collins plans to use Brown mainly against left-handed pitchers, and he could spell Ike Davis at first base on days the team faces a tough lefty. Juan Lagares will mainly be used as a defensive replacement late in games, so at the moment, Brown looks to have more value in NL leagues than Lagares.
