Mets | Several NY hitters struggled against Giants

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 11:06:14 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (9-for-52), SS Ruben Tejada (1-for-27) and C Travis d'Arnaud (3-for-24) have struggled in the last 13 meetings with the San Francisco Giants. The Mets face the Giants in a series starting Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has just nine hits in his last 65 at-bats (.138) since June 17 with one home run and five RBI. Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has seven hits in his last 46 at-bats (.152) even after recording three hits last night. Against Giants starter Chris Heston, who no hit the Mets the last time he faced them, neither Duda nor Tejada are intriguing FantasyScore plays Monday.

Mets | Ruben Tejada dropped to ninth

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:33:31 -0700

New York Mets 2B Ruben Tejada is hitting ninth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has two hits in his last 31 at-bats (.065) since June 23. Avoid him on FantasyScore for the foreseeable future until he gets going again at the plate.

Mets | Ruben Tejada has bruised elbow

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 18:48:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B Ruben Tejada (elbow) has a bruise on his left elbow after being hit by a pitch from Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto Friday, June 26. X-rays came back negative.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't appear that Tejada ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will miss much playing time. If he is out of the lineup, 3B Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is the most likely option to play the hot corner, although he won't supply much offense.

Mets | Ruben Tejada hit by pitch

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:10:07 -0700

New York Mets 3B Ruben Tejada (arm) left the game Friday, June 26, after being struck in the left arm by a pitch from Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto. He was replaced in the game by 3B Eric Campbell.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Tejada's ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) injury remains unknown, so check back for further updates on his status. Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) entered play Friday batting .173 in 111 at-bats this season and carries no fantasy value.

Mets | Wilmer Flores moving to keystone?

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 09:10:50 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores has a "good possibility" of moving to second base when 2B Daniel Murphy (quadriceps) returns from the disabled list as soon as this weekend, according to a source familiar with internal team discussions. Murphy would move back to third base with SS Ruben Tejada playing shortstop at least in the short term. 2B Dilson Herrera would likely be the odd-man out in the infield. Flores has limited range at shortstop, and the Mets have struggled to turn double plays this year. Flores does have 10 home runs but is hitting only .243 with a .277 on-base percentage.

Fantasy Tip: This will do nothing to change Flores' ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) fantasy value at all. He does have suprising pop for a middle infielder, but his average isn't doing his owners any favors. Continue to view him as a low-end shortstop play on FantasyScore.

Mets | Ruben Tejada out Sunday

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 13:51:26 -0700

New York Mets 3B Ruben Tejada (ankle) is out of the starting lineup Sunday, June 21, against the Atlanta Braves. 3B Eric Campbell is in the lineup instead.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has an ankle injury, the severity of which is not known. You should immediately bench Tejada in your lineup. Campbell carries no fantasy value at this time.

Mets | NYM unlikely to pursue Everth Cabrera

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 17:51:25 -0700

The New York Mets are not expected to pursue SS Everth Cabrera, who was recently designated for assignment by the Baltimore Orioles, according to a team official. The Mets had expressed interest in Cabrera last offseason as a free agent but they are pleased with the production of SS Wilmer Flores, 2B Dilson Herrera and INF Ruben Tejada.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera hit .208 with four RBIs and two steals in 29 games for the O's before being let go. It wouldn't be surprising to see another team pick him up but he is unlikely to be a viable fantasy option again this season.

Mets | Ruben Tejada in the lineup

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 08:04:26 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada will start at third base against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz Sunday, June 14, and is batting seventh in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has gone hitless in his last three games but is still hitting .306 this month. He could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider since he was on a nine-game hitting streak before the last three games.

Mets | Ruben Tejada rejoins team

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 07:17:25 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada has been removed from the paternity list and he will start at third base Sunday, June 14, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will hit seventh in the order against RHP Mike Foltynewicz. Tejada went 0-for-14 in three games before taking time off, but he could be used in GPP tournaments as he has fresh legs and a little extra motivation.

Mets | Ruben Tejada sitting out vs. Giants

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:24:03 -0700

New York Mets 2B Ruben Tejada is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 11. 2B Dilson Herrera is batting seventh and playing second base against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has heated up over the past 12 games, and he has batted second in 11 of them and first the other. During the span, he has four runs, four doubles, six RBI, a stolen base and a .333/.389/.417 slash line. He is worth considering in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, although his value is likely fleeting. Herrera ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is making his first start since Thursday, May 14, and should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players.
