Mets | Ruben Tejada hits inside-the-parker

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:54:16 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada went 2-for-4 with an inside-the-park home run and four RBIs against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Wednesday, Tejada ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was hitting .283 in 113 at-bats since the All-Star break, although he has never been known as an offensive threat. Wilmer Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been the better choice at shortstop for FantasyScore purposes.

Mets | Wilmer Flores leaves team

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:45:32 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores has left the Mets to fly to Venezuela to be with his sick grandfather, but the team expects him to return Friday, Sept. 4. SS Ruben Tejada is starting in Flores' absence against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been the better-hitting shortstop than Tejada this season, and he's seen more playing time in the second half of the season. He could be back in the lineup as early as Friday, and he's a nice value pick with plenty of pop at a position where it's hard to find it.

Mets | Wilmer Flores out of the lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:30:39 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and batting fifth, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been swinging a hot bat, and he is worth a look in deep mixed leagues, especially if middle infield is an area of need. Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is a nice FantasyScore play Wednesday, as the Mets lineup is piling on the offense of late. Tejada ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is more of a dice roll, though, and he shouldn't be confused as a lineup priority.

Mets | Wilmer Flores starting at SS

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:01:47 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerome Williams Tuesday, Aug. 25. SS Ruben Tejada will start on the bench. Also, 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets are riding an offensive wave right now and had a franchise-high eight home runs last night, including two by Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), who now has 14 dingers on the season. Stacking Mets hitters is smart on FantasyScore tonight, including value plays of Flores and Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap).

Mets | Ruben Tejada resting Tuesday

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:50:31 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. SS Wilmer Flores is starting at the 6 and hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) can be a sneaky shortstop play on FantasyScore because of his surprising power numbers, but while hitting ninth in the batting order, his daily value is limited.

Mets | Wilmer Flores starting at shortstop

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:17:36 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP J.A. Happ Friday, Aug. 14. SS Ruben Tejada is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has surprising power for a utility middle infielder, and he should be on your radar as a sleeper shortstop play if you're looking to save a little money at the position. He's also hitting .299 (23-for-77) with four of his 11 home runs against southpaws.

Mets | Ruben Tejada playing shortstop

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 12:31:01 -0700

New York Mets INF Ruben Tejada will bat ninth and play shortstop against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns Saturday, Aug. 8. SS Wilmer Flores is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is 5-for-14 with two doubles and an RBI over the past week and is batting .323 away from Citi Field this year, making him worthy of consideration for FantasyScore lineups.

Mets | Wilmer Flores starting at short

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 13:38:01 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Friday, Aug. 7. SS Ruben Tejada receives the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) does have surprising pop for a middle infielder of his stature with 11 long balls on the season. He's hitting .238 (69-for-290) against righties this year, though, and hitting dead last in the lineup severely limits his daily upside.

Mets | Ruben Tejada out of the lineup

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 13:33:19 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Monday, Aug. 3. SS Wilmer Flores will start at shortstop and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and will return to the lineup soon. Flores ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting .251 this season with 11 home runs and 42 RBI this season and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Mets | Ruben Tejada sitting out vs. Friars

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:15:09 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. SS Wilmer Flores is starting at shortstop and batting seventh, and OF Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and batting third against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday, and in seasonal leagues, he is only an option in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. Flores ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore, and Johnson ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) could receive a nice fantasy boost if he sees everyday at-bats and earns eligibility at second base. Keep an eye on Johnson's usage in the field. Neither he or Flores stand out as strong FantasyScore plays Wednesday.
