Marlins | Miami not interested in Tyler Clippard

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 14:45:57 -0800

The Miami Marlins have not shown any interest in free-agent RP Tyler Clippard (Mets).

Fantasy Tip: Clippard was moved to a setup role after being acquired by the New York Mets last year, where he had just two saves. Most teams have their closer picture cleared up right now, so he's unlikely to have much fantasy fantasy value, but stay tuned.

Mets | Jeurys Familia, Tyler Clippard unavailable

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 16:06:21 -0700

New York Mets RPs Jeurys Familia and Tyler Clippard are unavailable against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, Sept. 10, because of heavy usage this week. RP Addison Reed could be used in a save situation Thursday as a result.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to see here. Don't freak out if you own Familia and he isn't in there tonight if a save situation arises. He recorded the save in each of the last three nights in the series sweep of the Washington Nationals, throwing a combined three innings and fanning five.

Mets | Tyler Clippard to work as setup man

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:44:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets RP Tyler Clippard is expected to work as a setup man for CL Jeurys Familia, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard was acquired from the Oakland Athletics Monday, but he is not expected to close in Queens like he was previously doing in Oakland. His fantasy value in standard leagues takes a hit as a result, although he is a solid addition in NL-only rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories. He can also be a boon to fantasy owners in leagues which offer holds as a category.

Mets | Jeurys Familia sticking as closer

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:51:12 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia will remain as the team's closer after the acquisition of RP Tyler Clippard from the Oakland Athletics Monday, July 27, according to a source. Clippard will serve as the setup man.

Fantasy Tip: Despite blowing his first two save chances in the second half, Familia still owns a 1.70 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 27 saves this year, so he's earned plenty of rope in the Mets bullpen. Clippard obviously will lose significant value with this move, but he still has value to his owners in deeper leagues in a setup role, and he could see the occasional save chance, especially if Familia continues to struggle in the second half.

Athletics | Tyler Clippard traded away

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:26:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard was traded to the New York Mets Monday, July 27, in exchange for P Casey Meisner.

Fantasy Tip: With Clippard out of the picture in Oakland, Edward Mujica is the speculative favorite to pitch the ninth inning, but Drew Pomeranz could also be in the mix if he's moved back to a relief role. Fernando Rodriguez probably has the best skill set to pitch the ninth, but it's unclear if he'll be in the mix. Mujica has the experience over the others, but the A's could also use a committee approach from here on out. Target Mujica first if you're looking for saves, but expect this situation to be quite messy for fantasy owners.

Mets | Tyler Clippard acquired by Mets

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:22:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard was acquired by the New York Mets Monday, July 27, in exchange for P Casey Meisner.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how the bullpen roles will be affected by the acquisition of Clippard, who was closing for the A's. Jeurys Familia was lights out in the first half of the season but has blown both of his save chances since the All-Star break, leaving this situation a bit unsettled. Clippard is likely to serve in some sort of setup role, but he could also see save chances, especially if Familia continues his slump. Hold onto Clippard for now in all leagues. If anything, this hurts the chances of Bobby Parnell and Jenrry Mejia securing more prominent roles at the back end.

Mets | Tyler Clippard being eyed by Mets

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 10:13:29 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard is being pursued by the New York Mets, and the two sides have made progress in trade talks, according to sources. Other teams have expressed interest in Clippard.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard has been closing games for the Athletics and has recorded 17 saves to this point. It is not known what his role would be if he was traded to the Mets, so owners should monitor the situation. Jeurys Familia has performed well as the closer for the Mets but has blown two saves in his last four appearances, which could give Clippard a chance to close if he joins the team.

Athletics | Tyler Clippard likely on the move

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 05:23:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard is likely the next A's player to be traded before the deadline. RP Drew Pomeranz is a candidate to become the closer if Clippard is dealt.

Fantasy Tip: Pick up Pomeranz in anticipation of Clippard's deal. Clippard may lose most of his fantasy value because he'll probably land on a team as a setup man.
