The New York Mets are expected to activate OF Eric Young Jr. (hamstring) from the disabled list Monday, June 16. OF Andrew Brown is likely to be sent to the minors to make room for Young on the roster. Young went 0-for-9 with two walks and a stolen base in three rehab games with Double-A Binghamton.
Fantasy Tip: Young should immediately return to the starting lineup with Juan Lagares (intercostal) still on the DL. Look to acquire Young off the waiver wire in deeper mixed leagues if you're in need of more speed.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu gives the Mets a left-handed stick off the bench and in pinch-hit situations. He's not worth pursuing.

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson's (forearm, rib cage, knee) X-rays came back negative, but he struggled to put on his shoes after the game Monday, April 14. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is expected to be brought up from Triple-A Las Vegas to help with outfield depth. Granderson crashed into the outfield wall attempting to make a catch Monday but later left the game with encouragement from the training staff.
"I hit the wall with my forearm, which then lodged my elbow into my chest area. And then running full stride my left knee also hit," Granderson said. "As the game just kept going on, things just started to tighten up a little bit. The great thing is all the X-rays are negative. We just wanted to be on the safe side and check everything, which we were able to do at the ballpark."
Fantasy Tip: Lucas Duda can be moved to the outfield to help with the likely loss of Juan Lagares (hamstring), and Chris Young (quadriceps) is expected to return from the DL Friday. Until then, Andrew Brown may see more playing time if Grandy needs some rest.

New York Mets OF Chris Young (quadriceps) was removed from the game Wednesday, April 2, and he was replaced by OF Andrew Brown.
Fantasy Tip: Another setback for Young, who might now have to go on the DL. This is good news for Juan Lagares, who is off to a strong start at the plate. If Lagares continues to hit, the Mets will probably keep finding him a spot in the lineup.

New York Mets OF Chris Young (quadriceps) is out of the lineup for the season opener Monday, March 31, due to a right quadriceps strain. OF Andrew Brown is starting in his place.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he will likely use 2B Daniel Murphy at third base and move OF Eric Young Jr. from the outfield to second base with 3B David Wright (hamstring) on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: This opens up a spot in the outfield for Mike Baxter and Andrew Brown in left field. They should be considered, starting with Baxter, in NL-only universes.
