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.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) is hitting .364 (12-for-33) with four runs scored, a homer and five RBIs over the past eight games. At a mid-level price he is a solid FantasyScore option.

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 11:24:40 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller Saturday, June 13. OF Darrell Ceciliani is starting in center field and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) had started 17 consecutive games and 26 of the last 27 contests. Manager Terry Collins said Miller's success against right-handed batters factored into his decision to give him the day off. Ceciliani ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .241 through 29 at-bats this season, with two RBIs and three steals.

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:30:58 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is batting second against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is riding a 10-for-24 run over his last six games with a 1.125 OPS, and batting second, he deserves attention at his cost-effective salary. FantasyScore players have a discounted flier with upside on their hands Thursday.

Mets | Juan Lagares moved down the order

Fri, 29 May 2015 12:39:27 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is batting seventh and playing center field against the Miami Marlins Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 17 games, Lagares is sporting a .437 OPS and riding an 11-for-66 run. Dropping down the lineup doesn't help his fantasy value, either. At best, Lagares is a flier source of cap relief Friday, but FantasyScore players should be able to hone in on a player in his price range in better form.

Mon, 25 May 2015 07:28:35 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is returning after sitting out Sunday, May 24, because of his injuries. Lagares has cooled off a bit in May and is hitting .235 this month but does have at least one hit in seven of his last eight games. Owners on FantasyScore could use Lagares in their lineups but there may be better options to use.

Mets | Juan Lagares on the bench

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:53:13 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. OF Darrell Ceciliani will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is dealing with a hamstring injury, so owners should watch to see how much time he may miss. Ceciliani only has one hit in his seven at-bats this season and should not be used in fantasy leagues at this time.
