Mets | Juan Lagares jumps to leadoff spot

Thu, 21 May 2015 07:38:42 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is batting leadoff against the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Setting the table is a boon for Lagares' ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) fantasy stock Thursday, and FantasyScore players have an upside low-priced flier on their hands. He is currently sporting a five-game hitting streak with two runs and a stolen base.

Mets | Juan Lagares back in lineup Friday

Fri, 15 May 2015 12:19:19 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares (arm) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting second in the batting order against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse Friday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) missed the team's last three games with an injury under his armpit. The right-handed hitting outfielder doesn't have that strong of a bat, and he has only one home run and 13 RBI this year. After sitting the last few days, it'd be wise to avoid Lagares as he attempts to get his timing back at the plate.

Mets | Juan Lagares to return Friday?

Thu, 14 May 2015 09:54:41 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares (arm) is out for the third straight day Thursday, May 14, but manager Terry Collins expects Lagares to return Friday, May 15. Lagares strained a muscle in his right armpit nine days ago, and the pain intensified early on the team's road trip.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) would be facing Milwaukee Brewers starter Kyle Lohse if he returns tomorrow night. It'd be wise to probably avoid Lagares at FantasyScore in his first game back, though, especially since he's hitting only .258 (25-for-97) with one home run and 12 RBI against righties this year.

Mets | Juan Lagares out again Thursday

Thu, 14 May 2015 09:42:17 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares (arm) is out of the starting lineup again Thursday, May 14. OF John Mayberry Jr. is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order against Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Mayberry ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) was supposed to be a lefty specialist for the Mets this year, but he's hitting only .130 (3-for-23) with one home run against southpaws in 2015. Mayberry is a weak FantasyScore option.

Mets | Juan Lagares remains sidelined

Wed, 13 May 2015 13:50:25 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares (arm) is out of the starting lineup again Wednesday, May 13. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is starting in center field again and hitting seventh in the batting order against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) was hitless again last night with two strikeouts, and he's hitting a brutal .100 (3-for-30) with just two extra-base hits and two RBI to begin the year. Stay away from him.

Mets | Juan Lagares has injury

Tue, 12 May 2015 14:33:06 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares (arm) is dealing with a slight muscle strain near his armpit, which is why he's out Tuesday, May 12. He could sit out again Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: With Lagares banged up, Kirk Nieuwenhuis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is starting tonight and could receive another start tomorrow. However, he's nothing more than a low-end outfield dice roll at FantasyScore.

Mets | Juan Lagares not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 12 May 2015 13:39:54 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 12. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is hitting in his place and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal night off for Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap). As for Nieuwenhuis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only hitting .200 in the past week in part-time duty so he has minimal fantasy value.

Mets | Juan Lagares, Daniel Murphy hot

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 11:42:31 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares and 2B Daniel Murphy are beginning to heat up of late. Lagares is 9-for-17 in the last four games and is 10-for-23 in his last five games at the Miami Marlins. Murphy is 10-for-25 (.400) with two home runs and six RBI in his last six games in Miami. Murphy's three hits Tuesday, April 28, made him 6-for-11 with five RBI in the last three games, raising his average 60 points to .205.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) and Murphy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) are trending in the right direction for FantasyScore users, and you should look to capitalize on their hot streaks while you can. Both would seem to be acceptable plays in daily games today against the up-and-down Mat Latos Wednesday night.

Mets | Juan Lagares in No. 2 slot

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 14:42:33 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares has been moved up to the No. 2 spot in the batting order after 3B David Wright (hamstring) and C Travis d'Arnaud (hand) have landed on the disabled list. Lagares will likely continue to hit in the spot, at least until Wright returns.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is more of a defensive-minded player, although he had encouraging signs last season while hitting .281 with four home runs and 47 RBI in 116 games. Lagares' fantasy value should be helped by the move to the top of the lineup, and it makes him a little more intriguing at FantasyScore as an outfield sleeper, especially against Atlanta Braves starter Trevor Cahill tonight.

Mets | Juan Lagares dropped in order

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 10:58:47 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares has been dropped from sixth in the lineup to seventh for the game Monday, April 13. He is off to a 4-for-25 (.160) start to the year with one RBI and six strikeouts. C Travis d'Arnaud traded spots with Lagares in the batting order. Lagares hit .359 with three home runs in 64 spring training at-bats, and manager Terry Collins said Lagares is a leadoff option when he's going well.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares' ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) breakout 2014 season gave fantasy owners hopes that he'd continue to progress offensively in 2015. So far, that hasn't been the case, and you should consider him a weak FantasyScore play until he shows signs of life at the bottom of the Mets order.
