Mets | Jose Reyes receives injection

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 21:33:55 -0700

New York Mets SS Jose Reyes (rib cage) received an injection and treatment for his strained ribcage on his left side. Manager Terry Collins said Reyes is likely to be sidelined until at least Friday, July 29. As long as Reyes is sidelined, Collins said 2B Wilmer Flores will continue to fill in.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes should be reserved in all fantasy leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in at least a full game or two without any setbacks before trusting him again.

Mets | Jose Reyes to miss a few days

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:26:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B Jose Reyes (intercostal) is hopeful to only miss a few days because of his strained left intercostal. INF Wilmer Flores will start at third base in the meantime, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Seasonal owners should prepare to be without Reyes into the weekend and potentially longer. He is worth stashing in most settings during his absence. Flores has been scorching hot in July, and he should be owned and started in the majority of leagues until Reyes returns, and potentially longer.

Mets | No Jose Reyes vs. Cards

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 12:22:31 -0700

New York Mets 3B Jose Reyes (intercostal) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. INF Wilmer Flores is starting at third base and batting sixth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: While Flores has done most of his damage against southpaws this season (1.068 OPS), he's also sporting a .340/.382/.800 slash line in July. Flores should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues at this point, especially with his positional versatility. Reyes is 16-for-67 (.239 batting average) to start his second tenure with the Mets, but he also has a .493 slugging percentage, so he remains a viable stash in all leagues while nursing the minor injury.

Mets | Three Mets players to sit out

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 16:48:59 -0700

New York Mets SS Jose Reyes, OF Curtis Granderson and OF Michael Conforto are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, July 26. OF Juan Lagares will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup against Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia. SS Wilmer Flores will start at third base and is batting fourth, while OF Alejandro De Aza will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares, Flores and De Aza have all struggled at the plate over the last seven days and should not be considered by owners in most mixed leagues.

Mets | Wilmer Flores starting vs. Miami

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:42:02 -0700

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores is starting at first base and batting fourth against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday, July 22. Mets 1B James Loney is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Flores is scorching hot and pushing for more playing time with an active 14-for-34 run at the plate that's yielded nine runs, seven home runs and 13 RBI. He should be owned in all deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Loney is nothing more than a fringe starter in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and he could begin to lose starts to Flores.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera sitting vs. Cubs

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:08:18 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. INF Wilmer Flores draws into the starting lineup at third base and is batting third against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is having a respectable season with 39 runs, 13 home runs, 31 RBI and a .266/.321/.432 slash line and should be viewed as a low-end starter in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Flores is hitting when receiving the chance and owns a .290/.344/.510 slash line with 19 runs, eight home runs and 24 RBI since the calendar flipped to May. He's worth owning in deeper settings to plug in when he's in the lineup. Flores is also a viable flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Mets | Wilmer Flores draws in at first base

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 13:03:53 -0700

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores is starting at first base and batting fifth against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Monday, July 18. 1B James Loney is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: With an excellent .300/.364/.580 slash line against southpaws this season, Flores is a strong fantasy option in all formats Monday, including daily contests. He's receiving enough playing time to be a low-end starter in deep mixed leagues, and he should be owned and started in all cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. Loney is best viewed as a desperation starter in similar deep seasonal leagues.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes, James Loney out Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 07:29:24 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) and 1B James Loney are not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Sunday, July 10. INF Wilmer Flores will bat third and play first base, OF Juan Lagares will bat sixth and play center field and OF Alejandro De Aza will bat eighth and start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Flores is 11-for-22 (.500) with a double, five home runs and 10 RBI over the past week, so he should be inserted into all fantasy lineups. Lagares is also worthy of lineup consideration, since he is a .406 career hitter versus Gonzalez in 32 at-bats, with three doubles, a triple, a home run and four RBI. De Aza is 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles against Gonzalez and is 4-for-10 at the plate this month.

Mets | Wilmer Flores enjoying power surge

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 20:24:56 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run and a walk in a 9-7 win over the Washington Nationals Thursday, July 7, and he has five home runs in his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Flores has eight homers and 24 RBI on the year, and five homers and 10 RBI have come in the last fives games. The power trip won't last, but he is at least worth a short-term look in NL-only leagues and DFS formats.

Mets | Wilmer Flores on the bench

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 12:53:32 -0700

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 7. SS Asdrubal Cabrera (personal) returns to shortstop and is hitting sixth, while 1B James Loney is at first base and batting fifth against Washington Nationals SP Lucas Giolito.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a hot streak of late (.375 average, four homers, seven RBI in July), Flores will lose fantasy luster with uncertain playing time now that Jose Reyes is the regular third baseman. Flores could split time with Loney or around the infield, but he's more of a depth option now in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.
