Mets | Several NYM regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:43:10 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera, OF Curtis Granderson and C Travis d'Arnaud are not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris Sunday, June 26. INF/OF Kelly Johnson will bat leadoff and play left field, INF Matthew Reynolds will play shortstop and bat second, OF Brandon Nimmo will play right field and bat seventh and C Rene Rivera will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds is 7-for-20 with a home run and six RBI during the month of June and is worth considering as a value play for daily fantasy lineups. Nimmo will be making his MLB debut and possesses plenty of upside, so he could be worth taking a flier on in DFS as well. Johnson and Rivera are a combined 1-for-11 versus Norris and should be avoided Sunday.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera has nice day

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:39:27 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera went 2-for-3 with his eighth home run of the season Wednesday, June 22, against the Kansas City Royals. He finished the day with two runs scored, two RBI, and he also drew a walk.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has performed serviceably in his first year with the Mets, owning a .270/.330/.418 line while providing some modest pop. He's been hitting in the No. 2 hole consistently, so the potential will be there for his stock to go up. As it is, he's an acceptable option at shortstop in deep NL-only formats, but that's about it.

Mets | New-look lineup for Mets

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 14:58:18 -0700

Updating a previous report, OF Kelly Johnson is starting in left field and batting fifth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Wednesday, June 15, after OF Juan Lagares (thumb) was a late scratch. SS Asdrubal Cabrera is now batting second, and INF Wilmer Flores is hitting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: There are limited fantasy ramifications here. Flores receives a boost hitting behind the three best hitters in the lineup and could be a viable low-priced option in daily contests. Johnson also is a potential DFS flier, except he's just 22-for-99 (.222 batting average) against left-handed hurlers since the beginning of 2014.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera cleaning up vs. Pirates

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 13:02:53 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera is batting fourth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: It hasn't been a monster start, but Cabrera has returned 22 runs, six home runs, 21 RBI and a .262 batting average to date, which makes him a starter in deep mixed and NL-only setups. Hitting fourth should provide a few more RBI opportunities for Cabrera Wednesday, too.

Mets | Three Mets starters sitting out

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 09:42:49 -0700

New York Mets 2B Neil Walker, SS Asdrubal Cabrera and C Rene Rivera are not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Sunday, June 12. INF Matt Reynolds will start at shortstop and is batting second. 2B Kelly Johnson will start at second base and is batting fourth, while C Kevin Plawecki will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki and Johnson have posted decent numbers over the last seven days. Johnson should be considered by owners in daily fantasy lineups, while Plawecki can be used in two-catcher leagues. Reynolds is not a strong fantasy option and should be avoided in all leagues.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera hitting second on Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 14:45:27 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera is hitting second Saturday, May 28, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera has hit second in the past couple games for the Mets, and over the last nine games he has 10 hits. With a .282 average, Cabrera should get mid-range consideration for your fantasy lineup.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera returns to action

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:46:51 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) is returning to the starting lineup and is hitting second against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera didn't even see one at-bat before being removed for back spasms, but he's back in there tonight, so his condition must not be serious. He's facing a teenage pitching phenom making his major league debut tonight. Cabrera has been solid against lefties in the year (.310/.356/.357) but has zero home runs. Hitting second, he's worth midrange consideration at shortstop Friday night.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera not worried about injury

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:57:08 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) said he will be ready to play against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is off to a respectable start with 14 runs, three home runs, 17 RBI and a .283/.335/.392 slash line. He is a low-end option in the majority of leagues, but his full-time at-bats carry plenty of value in deep mixed and NL-only formats. Stay tuned for updates, but it looks like Cabrera should be back Friday.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera exits with back spasms

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:49:54 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) left the game Wednesday, May 25, with back spasms. SS Matthew Reynolds replaced him.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds is 0-for-6 in his young career, and hit just .238 in 130 at-bats at Class AAA Las Vegas. He's not much of an option in fantasy if Cabrera is out for a stretch.

Mets | David Wright not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:53:47 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 24, against the Washington Nationals. 3B Ty Kelly is batting eighth against Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg. The team has also moved SS Asdrubal Cabrera to the No. 2 spot in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wright has dealt with back issues in recent games, but this appears to be a normal night out of the starting lineup. Kelly was hitting .391 in the minors at the time of his promotion and may be worth a flyer in DFS leagues Tuesday night. Wait and see how Kelly is used before picking him up in other leagues. As for Cabrera, he has five hits in his last four games and is worth the fantasy risk because of his movement up the lineup.
