Mets | Juan Lagares starting vs. Boston

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:33:22 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting first against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Friday, Aug. 28. OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has only received 45 plate appearances in August, but he has made the most of them with nine runs, 11 RBI and a 1.014 OPS. Like most hitters for the red-hot Mets, he is worth considering at FantasyScore Friday. Conforto ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) remains worth owning in deeper mixed leagues, but he is unlikely to see anything more than semi-regular playing time down the stretch, so owners will want to keep that in mind.

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:34:56 -0700

Mets | Michael Conforto draws out against Philly

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:55:51 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 24. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting leadoff against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has received limited playing time of late with just seven starts in August. However, he does own a .378/.395/.622 slash line for the month. FantasyScore players should view Lagares as a solid value play Monday, as he'll set the table for a rolling lineup. Conforto ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has also played well when called upon and owns a respectable .840 OPS through his first 21 games at the highest level. His uncertain playing time makes him a low-end outfield option in the majority of seasonal leagues, though.

Mets | Michael Conforto has three hits in win

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 00:36:21 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto banged out three hits Sunday, Aug. 23, as the Mets beat the Colorado Rockies 5-1.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has a .224-3-11 line to date and he has more runs (16) than hits (13), but his .513 slugging mark in August is making it harder to put Michael Cuddyer in the lineup. Look at Conforto's matchup and splits before putting him in the lineup but know he probably won't lose his starting gig.

Mets | Juan Lagares starting again

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:12:11 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Pittsburgh Pirates SP J.A. Happ Friday, Aug. 14. OF Michael Conforto sits again against a left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto will likely only be in the starting lineup moving forward when facing right-handed pitchers. Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has heated up a bit of late with some regular playing time, and his matchup against Happ is intriguing. Consider him a sleeper pick that could pay out if he stays hot.

Mets | Michael Conforto out vs. Colorado

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:18:55 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is out of the lineup for the second straight day against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Wednesday, Aug. 12. OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field for the second straight night and hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto should be back in the starting lineup when the Mets face a right-handed pitcher again. Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) was productive out of the leadoff spot last night but is still hitting only .257 (94-for-366) with three home runs and 30 RBI on the season. He remains a very mediocre offensive weapon for FantasyScore users.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer facing lefty

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 13:29:42 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer is starting in right field and hitting fifth against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Tuesday, Aug. 11. OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) and Conforto to be in some sort of platoon the rest of the way in the outfield, with Conforto playing mostly against righty pitchers. The bad news for Cuddyer is he was hitting only .226 (14-for-62) with one of his eight home runs against lefties this year. He's not the most intriguing daily pick tonight in his first game back from the DL.

Mets | Michael Conforto to remain left fielder

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 13:57:30 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto received praise from general manager Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins, and Conforto will remain the everyday left fielder, in the opinion of Newday's David Lennon.

Fantasy Tip: Michael Conforto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) hasn't set the world on fire and owns a .222/.326/.389 slash line over 43 plate appearances since joining the Mets. Still, everyday at-bats would make him a viable option in the majority of seasonal leagues. Michael Cuddyer ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) looms, though, and if the rookie struggles, Cuddyer could steal more playing time. It is a situation to keep an eye on going forward.
