Mets | NYM to return to five-man rotation

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 17:50:44 -0700

The New York Mets have decided to revert back to a five-man rotation because the team did not want to commit to anyone as a spot starter, according to manager Terry Collins. This means SP Noah Syndergaard will start on regular rest against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, July 22, with SPs Matt Harvey and Jacob DeGrom starting against the Nats Monday, July 20, and Tuesday, July 21, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets had instituted the six-man rotation as a way to limit the innings of their young starters, although a return to the traditional five-man rotation appeared inevitable after SP Stephen Matz (lat) landed on the disabled list. Collins still plans to use spot starters down the line as a way to make sure the innings don't pile up as the season progresses.

Padres | Tough matchup for Justin Upton Monday

Sun, 31 May 2015 19:45:19 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton has struck out in five of his nine at-bats against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom, who is scheduled to start against the Padres Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: The sample size isn't huge, but considering Upton ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) commands a big price tag at FantasyScore, his history with deGrom is enough to make you think twice about paying for his services Monday.

Mets | NY going to six-man rotation

Wed, 27 May 2015 12:15:04 -0700

The New York Mets will use a six-man pitching rotation throughout early to mid-August once SP Dillon Gee is added to the rotation. Gee will join SPs Jacob deGrom, Bartolo Colon, Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jon Niese. The idea is to shave about 30 innings per pitcher and prevent so many arms from going over 200 innings in one season.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't a surprise. With such young arms as Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), Harvey ($9,100, 18.2% of cap), deGrom ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) and Syndergaard ($6,000, 12.0% of cap), the Mets are interested in preserving the health of pitchers. No pitcher will likely get two starts in a week, which could hurt in yearly leagues, but you will still get one start a week in FantasyScore.

Mets | Jacob deGrom strikes out nine

Tue, 26 May 2015 21:51:32 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed two runs on six hits in 7 1/3 innings against the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, May 26. He also struck out nine batters during the game.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) has pitched very well throughout the season and has allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his 10 starts. deGrom is scheduled to face the San Diego Padres in his next start and could be a good option on FantasyScore.
