Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka to the pen

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 17:30:09 -0700

New York Mets SP Daisuke Matsuzaka will return to the bullpen Monday, July 21, with SP Jon Niese (hamstring) rejoining the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets had already announced that this move would eventually happen, but with Niese being activated, Matsuzaka's time in the rotation is officially up. Feel free to cut him loose if you currently own him.

Mets | Jon Niese says he's ready to return

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 15:21:33 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese (hamstring) threw a bullpen session before the game Friday, July 18, and said he's ready to return from the disabled list to face off against the Seattle Mariners Monday, July 21. Niese has been on the DL since June 22 with a strained left hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Look to start Niese next week if you own him. If his owner let go of him recently, he's worth picking up in deep mixed formats.

Mets | Rotation set for San Diego series

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:45:27 -0700

New York Mets SPs Bartolo Colon, Dillon Gee and Zack Wheeler will pitch against the San Diego Padres in next weekend's series, which begins Friday, July 18. Manager Terry Collins has not determined the rest of the rotation, but said SP Jacob deGrom will remain in the starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Jon Niese's health will influence the backend of the rotation going forward. However, it appears Daisuke Matsuzaka will lose his spot when Niese returns. deGrom's value stabilizes, and he is emerging as a viable option in mixed leagues.

Mets | Jon Niese's return date set

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 14:26:15 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese (shoulder) will pitch Monday, July 21, at the Seattle Mariners. He is eligible to come off the disabled list for the team's series against the San Diego Padres, which begins Friday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Niese is a low-end starter in mixed leagues, due to his lack of strikeouts. He is crafty enough to help stabilize your ratios, though. The Mets' offense is showing signs of improvement and could provide more run support, which would be a bonus.
