Mets | Could move Lucas Duda to cleanup

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:17:50 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he is considering moving 1B Lucas Duda to the cleanup spot in the batting order. "We've put a lot on Lucas' plate in the past week," Collins said about the reluctance to use Duda as a cleanup hitter now. "I don't want to pile on."

Mets | Ike Davis traded

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 15:49:47 -0700

The New York Mets agreed to trade 1B Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, April 18. It's unknown what the Mets will receive in return.

Fantasy Tip: As Terry Collins has said already, Lucas Duda is now clearly the starting first baseman in New York. Josh Satin can mix in against tough lefties, but this is Duda's job all the way now. There's more reason to take a chance on Duda's power in mixed leagues.

Mets | 1B still a revolving door

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:55:38 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is still considered the starter at first base, but 1B Ike Davis has started there once in each series and got the start Wednesday, April 16. 1B Josh Satin has started three games against lefties. Duda is hitting .364 (8-for-22) with a home run and four RBIs in his last five starts, but manager Terry Collins said Davis received the nod Wednesday because of his history at Chase Field and the fact that he wanted to get Davis a start in his hometown.

Fantasy Tip: This is a situation to stay away from unless you're in an NL-only league. Duda is the guy to own if you must have one of the trio.

Mets | Committed to Lucas Duda at 1B

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:33:03 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he's committed to 1B Lucas Duda at first base, regardless of the team's outfield alignment.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets' outfield is ailing right now, but Duda will remain at first base. That's bad news for Ike Davis' playing time. Andrew Brown should see a short-term increase in playing time with Juan Lagares (hamstring) headed to the DL.

Mets | Juan Lagares likely headed to DL

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 06:52:00 -0700

Updating an earlier report, New York Mets OF Juan Lagares (hamstring) is likely headed to the disabled list due to a strained hamstring. 1B/OF Lucas Duda is likely to take over in left field, which will open up more time for 1B Ike Davis at first base.

Mets | Bobby Abreu tearing up minors

Sun, 13 Apr 2014 23:06:38 -0700

New York Mets OF Bobby Abreu is hitting .500 at Triple-A and may be a candidate to help the team quickly now that his April 30 opt-out deadline is approaching. If Abreu is called up, speculation is either 1B Ike Davis or OF Lucas Duda could be moved.

Mets | Lucas Duda still the starter at 1B

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 14:59:05 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said 1B Lucas Duda remains the team's starting first baseman despite the fact that 1B Ike Davis has started two of four games this week. 1B Josh Satin is also likely to start a game at first over the weekend. Duda is hitting .182 with two home runs and four RBIs to start the year.

Mets | Audition over for Lucas Duda?

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 20:32:29 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins indicated 1B Ike Davis will start over 1B Lucas Duda Thursday, April 10, against the Atlanta Braves. Duda is hitting just .182 with two homers and four RBI in 22 at-bats this season, while Davis is hitting .400 with one homer and four RBI in just 10 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Duda appears to have fallen out of favor after having his chance to seize the opportunity, but don't drop him yet. And with left-handed pitching slated to go Friday and Sunday in the team's upcoming series against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, it is Josh Satin, now Davis or Duda, who is likely to start at first base.
