Mets | Kyle Farnsworth named closer

Sun, 20 Apr 2014 07:16:11 -0700

The New York Mets named RP Kyle Farnsworth as the team's closer Sunday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Farnsworth should be owned in all leagues. Get him into your lineups. Jose Valverde will likely see late inning bullpen work and is probably going to lose some of his fantasy baseball value as a result of this move. For more on this situation, go to our Closer Depth Charts.

Mets | To mix and match in eighth inning

Wed, 02 Apr 2014 15:24:57 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he'll likely mix and match with eighth-inning setup duties. RP Kyle Farnsworth is a possibility, but so are RPs Jeurys Familia and Scott Rice, among others. The Mets will not immediately look to sign another late-inning reliever available on the free-agent market just yet. New York will also consider promoting SPs Rafael Montero or Jacob deGrom for a bullpen role, but it's unlikely to happen soon.

Fantasy Tip: The only thing really clear for now is that Jose Valverde is the team's closer with Bobby Parnell (elbow) out. That could change, too, but based on Papa Grande's performance this spring and on opening day, he'll have a little rope to play with.

Mets | Bobby Parnell headed to DL

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 12:42:04 -0700

The New York Mets will place RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) on the disabled list, and they'll purchase the contract of RP Kyle Farnsworth from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: A lot would have to happen for Farnsworth to become the team's next closer with Parnell sidelined. Jose Valverde should be owned in all leagues by now, and Vic Black might even receive a shot before Farnsworth is called upon in the ninth.
