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.

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 07:33:48 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores could move from second base to shortstop since 2B Daniel Murphy is expected to move back to second base. SS Ruben Tejada would become a bench player.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been playing at second base because of injuries to the roster. He is hitting .295 with seven RBI this month and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

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 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.

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.
