Mets | Juan Lagares out of the lineup

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:34:21 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke Sunday, July 26. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will start in center field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Nieuwenhuis ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) went 4-for-4 with four RBI in his last game and is batting .375 this month. He is facing a tough matchup Sunday but could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 12:41:20 -0700

New York Mets OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will bat seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers OF Zach Lee Saturday, July 25. OF Juan Lagares is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is only batting .159 on the season but he is 8-for-28 (.286) during the month of July, with three home runs and six RBIs. He is worth considering as a value play in FantasyScore.

Mets | Juan Lagares a disappointment

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 10:14:27 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares has been a disappointment this year with an on-base percentage of just .284, and his elbow issue appears to be serious. Opponents are routinely testing his arm in the outfield, and he looks to be a step slower on defense, too.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has never been a power threat (career-high four home runs), but his average is down from .281 last season, and he's only stolen six bags to boot. He's been hitting in the bottom third of the Mets' lineup, too, which does his daily value no favors, either.

Mets | Juan Lagares resting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:19:56 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares isn't in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the San Francisco Giants. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will start in center field and hit seventh in the order against RHP Matt Cain.

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has doubled for each of his last two hits, but he's just 3-for-21 dating back to his time with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. FantasyScore owners should opt for a safer choice.

Mets | Juan Lagares out of lineup

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:22:16 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. OF Darrell Ceciliani is starting in center field and hitting second against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: Ceciliani ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is an ugly option for FantasyScore lineups, even while hitting second in the batting order. The matchup against Arrieta is a tough one, and Ceciliani is sporting a .237 average (14-for-59) with one home run and just three RBI.

Mets | NY scuffling offensively

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 13:09:22 -0700

New York Mets 2B Dilson Herrera (1-for-17), OF Juan Lagares (3-for-23), 1B Lucas Duda (3-for-21) and OF Michael Cuddyer (3-for-21) have all been struggling on the team's current road trip. The Mets are hitting .168 with four home runs and eight runs scored while losing six straight on the road.

Fantasy Tip: That's a hint to consider using Jimmy Nelson ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) as a risk-reward option on FantasyScore against the Mets tonight. New York ranks 28th in baseball with a .659 OPS against right-handed pitchers. Shying away from Mets hitters right now in daily contests is wise.

Mets | Juan Lagares playing through injury?

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 15:02:47 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares (elbow) has been playing through and managing elbow discomfort this season, according to manager Terry Collins. General manager Sandy Alderson noted Lagares has "soreness in the elbow," and Alderson added Tommy John surgery is not something they are looking at currently. Lagares was shut down last September with a right elbow strain.

Fantasy Tip: Thus far, Lagares' ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) defense has been the only thing limited by the injury, as he is currently sporting an eight-game hitting streak with four runs scored, a homer and five RBI. Still, seasonal owners will want to consider having a backup plan in place, but in the short term, FantasyScore plays have a nice value play on their hands.
