Mets | Yoenis Cespedes back in there

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:07:39 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting third against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes has been dogged by several nagging injuries this year but has been fortunate enough to avoid any DL stints. On the season he's hitting a nice .295/.367/.567 with 21 long balls and 52 RBI. That's great production in any fantasy format, making him a top-tier outfielder as a must-start. Return him to all lineups.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes not 100% healthy

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:41:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes' (quadriceps) quadriceps is still not 100% healthy, and he is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20, because the organization wants to provide two days of rest for Cespedes with no game scheduled Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes has been nursing various injuries off and on all season, so fantasy owners should welcome the odd game off to keep him from the disabled list. After all, he's been nothing short of a high-end contributor when in the lineup and sits with 47 runs, 21 home runs, 52 RBI and a .295/.367/.567 slash line for the campaign.

Mets | No Yoenis Cespedes against Cubs

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:48:17 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Sub out Cespedes where you can in seasonal leagues. Despite battling nagging injuries for most of the season, he's remained a high-end outfielder with 47 runs, 21 home runs, 52 RBI and a .295/.367/.567 slash line. Lagares is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Wednesday, but he's nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Mets | Michael Conforto to play in CF

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 16:23:56 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto will get time in center field, with OF Yoenis Cespedes expressing a desire to solely play left field for remainder of the season, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense, as Cespedes has been banged up and a switch to right field would be less taxing on his legs compared to keeping him in center. Conforto, meanwhile, benefits from this, though he'll have to reprove himself first to fantasy owners before he can be plugged into starting lineups again in most leagues.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes not 100%

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 23:43:15 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) said Sunday, July 17, that he's 80-90% healthy, and he'd prefer to stay in left field.

Fantasy Tip: That request could prevent a problem for the Mets, who essentially have three corner outfielders for two spots with Curtis Granderson, Michael Conforto and Cespedes. Juan Lagares could continue to see more action to play center, but someone would be forced to sit more often. Conforto played four games in the minors in right field, which means Granderson could be pressed into action in center if needed. Cespedes said his timing at the plate is off, and he should probably be avoided in DFS for a couple of days.

Mets | Brandon Nimmo, Travis d'Arnaud out

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 09:38:12 -0700

New York Mets OF Brandon Nimmo and C Travis d'Arnaud are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Sunday, July 17. OF Yoenis Cespedes will start at left field, while OF Juan Lagares will start at center field and is batting seventh. C Rene Rivera will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares is hitting .200 with one home run and one RBI this month and is not a strong option in most fantasy leagues. Rivera has only two hits in his last 11 at-bats and should only be used in two-catcher leagues.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes out again Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:29:29 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is out of the lineup Saturday, July 16, with OF Juan Lagares hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares is hitting just .182 this month and is pretty limited at the dish anyway. Pass on him against Jerad Eickhoff. As for Cespedes, he'll need to return in the next couple of days to avoid a DL placement. He has been out for a week now, and they could backdate the move so he misses minimal time.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes day-to-day

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 05:38:24 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is considered day-to-day because of his quadriceps injury but was able to be a pinch hitter Friday, July 15.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should check the lineup over the next few days to see if Cespedes is able to play. He should be used in starting lineups when he is healthy, but owners should have a backup plan while he is out.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes remains out

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:43:21 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (quad) remains sidelined due to a quad strain, so OF Juan Lagares will bat eighth on Friday, July 15, against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jeremy Hellickson.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Cespedes on your bench until he is ready to come back. The team is hopeful that it could be any time. Lagares has limited fantasy value hitting towards the bottom.
