New York Mets OF Chris Young is a candidate to be released by the club, with the intent of recalling OF Matt den Dekker from Triple-A Las Vegas, according to sources. den Dekker's average leads the Pacific Coast League at .334 this year, and he has only 64 strikeouts in 332 at-bats. If den Dekker is promoted, the Mets plan to play him often. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis would move to more of a bench role in that scenario. Young has a slash line of just .205/.283/.346 this year.
Fantasy Tip: If you're in an NL-only league, you should get a jump on den Dekker and stash him now. Since he's expected to receive everyday playing time upon his arrival, he's worth stashing in deep mixed leagues, too.
