Mets | To mix and match in eighth inning

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he'll likely mix and match with eighth-inning setup duties. RP Kyle Farnsworth is a possibility, but so are RPs Jeurys Familia and Scott Rice, among others. The Mets will not immediately look to sign another late-inning reliever available on the free-agent market just yet. New York will also consider promoting SPs Rafael Montero or Jacob deGrom for a bullpen role, but it's unlikely to happen soon.

Fantasy Tip: The only thing really clear for now is that Jose Valverde is the team's closer with Bobby Parnell (elbow) out. That could change, too, but based on Papa Grande's performance this spring and on opening day, he'll have a little rope to play with.
