Brewers | MIL denies Carlos Gomez hip issue

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:18:20 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez (hip) was the centerpiece of a deal that fell apart with the New York Mets due to an alleged hip issue. Brewers general manager Doug Melvin and Gomez's agent, Scott Boras, denied Gomez had an issue with his hip. According to a source, the Mets wanted the Brewers to take OF Juan Lagares in the deal, but the Brewers declined because Lagares has an elbow issue. Lagares also has a four-year, $23 million extension that kicks in next year, and the Brewers didn't want to pick up the money. The Mets swapped in SS Wilmer Flores in the deal and wanted a draft pick, which the Brewers declined. The Brewers were also asked to include cash in the deal and declined. After the Brewers declined to include cash in the deal, the Mets called off the deal because of Gomez's medical records.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Gomez's hip condition is overblown or even a smokescreen. At $5,400 (10.8% of cap), Gomez remains a high-end outfielder. However, it might be best to avoid him on FantasyScore until after the July 31 deadline passes.

Mets | Juan Lagares back in center

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:03:44 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and hitting ninth against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Thursday, July 30. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has lost considerable playing time to Nieuwenhuis lately because of a weak bat. Lagares has 17 hits in 68 at-bats (.250) in July with no home runs and five RBI. He should be avoided on FantasyScore today, and he could fall further down the depth chart if the Mets trade for another outfield bat at the deadline.

Mets | Juan Lagares continues to sit

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 18:49:26 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares was not in the starting lineup for the third straight game Tuesday, July 28, against the San Diego Padres, as manager Terry Collins gives OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis another start since he is on a roll.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has struggled against right-handed pitching anyway, so it is no loss for FantasyScore players.

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.

Mets | Kirk Nieuwenhuis in lineup Saturday

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 at bottom of order

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 13:11:27 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is batting ninth in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Tuesday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has moved around in the order over the past few games but has returned to the ninth spot. He has picked up four hits in his last two games and is hitting .250 this month. Lagares could be a cheaper option for owners to consider, but they may be able to find better options to use.

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.
