Mets | Lucas Duda making progress

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:24:04 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) has begun swinging a bat, but he still will not be activated from the disabled list when eligible this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) sported a .304/.389/.587 slash line through his 13 games prior to the injury, so as long as he doesn't skid too much initially, he stands to have a strong final few weeks of the season. You'll want to be careful with him at FantasyScore, too.

Mets | Bad news for Lucas Duda

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:25:16 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is not expected to be ready to return from the disabled list when eligible this weekend, according to the team.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was originally expected to only require the minimum time on the shelf, so this is clearly disappointing news for all. Unless you're desperate for the roster spot, continue to stash the slugger in all seasonal formats. The Mets have been throwing all kinds of lineups together over the past three weeks, so expect things to become even more creative once Duda returns.

Mets | Lucas Duda not swinging yet

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:52:15 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) has not been able to start swinging a bat at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is still a few weeks away from returning to the lineup, so owners should monitor his recovery. Michael Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) could see most of the playing time at first base and could be a starting option against certain opponents.

Mets | Lucas Duda receives positive news

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:27:11 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) was diagnosed with a muscle strain in his back and should miss the minimum of 15 days, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is worth stashing in all formats, as he should be able to make an impact during the final weeks of the regular season. He was turning it on in the second half with nine home runs and a .950 OPS over 27 games since the All-Star break. His absence should ensure everyday at-bats for Daniel Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) who is also really turning it on of late with a .357/.373/.600 slash line over his past 16 games.

Mets | Lucas Duda to DL

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 15:05:54 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, Aug. 22, with a back injury. He'll receive a second opinion Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Duda is believed to have a lower back strain, but his season could be in jeopardy with just over a month left. Michael Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is in at first base Saturday and figures to benefit most. He's a matchup play on FantasyScore.

Mets | Lucas Duda back in lineup

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:35:46 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is back in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) missed a handful of games with a back ailment, but he was very hot with the stick before that. It's a good idea to return him to your starting lineups everywhere tonight against a right-handed pitcher in a hitter's park.

Mets | Lucas Duda out against lefty

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 08:03:27 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is out of the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 16, against the Pittsburgh Pirates and LHP Jeff Locke. OF Michael Cuddyer will start at first base and hit sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting only .255 against right-handed pitching, but he does have seven home runs, and he can be used in GPP tournaments.

Mets | Lucas Duda has lumbar strain

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 14:08:17 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is dealing with a lumbar strain and is out of the lineup for the fourth straight game Friday, Aug. 14. He hit in the cages Friday and plans to take ground balls and normal batting practice. Duda said he's feeling better, and manager Terry Collins said it's possible that Duda plays Saturday, Aug. 15. If Duda doesn't return Saturday, he'd be eyeing a return early next week with the team facing another left-hander Sunday, Aug. 16. Collins said the team isn't considering putting Duda on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Duda's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) owners can rest easy knowing he won't be going on the DL, but a setback could land him there. Michael Cuddyer will likely continue starting at first if Duda can't play, and he's looked healthy since his return from his own DL stint. Cuddyer is a midrange outfield pick on FantasyScore.

Mets | Lucas Duda still sitting out

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:14:06 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is out of the lineup again Friday, Aug. 14. OF Michael Cuddyer is once again starting at first base and is hitting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: There's a chance that Duda will need to go on the DL if he can't return to the lineup this weekend. Plan for that possibility if you own him. Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has three hits in eight at-bats since returning from the DL, and despite subpar numbers against lefties this year, you could do much worse for an outfield value play on FantasyScore tonight.

Mets | Lucas Duda a candidate for DL?

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 15:15:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) wasn't feeling all that much better after receiving medicine for a stiff back Thursday, Aug. 13, and manager Terry Collins said Duda might have to go on the disabled list if he can't play Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Make plans to be without Duda ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) for longer if you own him in standard leagues. If he's in the lineup tomorrow night against Pittsburgh Pirates lefty J.A. Happ, he's not a terrible FantasyScore play, as he's improved drastically against southpaws in 2015.
