New York Mets SPs Bartolo Colon, Dillon Gee and Zack Wheeler will pitch against the San Diego Padres in next weekend's series, which begins Friday, July 18. Manager Terry Collins has not determined the rest of the rotation, but said SP Jacob deGrom will remain in the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Jon Niese's health will influence the backend of the rotation going forward. However, it appears Daisuke Matsuzaka will lose his spot when Niese returns. deGrom's value stabilizes, and he is emerging as a viable option in mixed leagues.
