Indians | David Aardsma battling back

Sat, 22 Feb 2014 20:25:03 -0800

Cleveland Indians RP David Aardsma is in camp as a non-roster player, and his speed is key to manager Terry Francona. "It's going to be interesting to see where his velocity sits," Francona said. "When I had him last time (in 2008 with the Boston Red Sox) he was 94 to 95 with a wipeout split. The split has good action in the bullpen, but we want to see where his velocity gets to. Last year, Aardsma's fastball averaged 91.2 mph, and he threw it 64 percent of the time along with a slider and the aforementioned splitter.

Mets | LaTroy Hawkins to be available

Fri, 16 Aug 2013 16:15:04 -0700

New York Mets RP LaTroy Hawkins (testicle) is expected to be available to pitch Friday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hawkins will need to be rested down the stretch, but he's the favorite for the majority of save chances if Bobby Parnell (neck) doesn't return again this year. Gonzalez Germen and David Aardsma might receive consideration, too. Germen closed out the game last night with Hawkins unavailable.

Mets | LaTroy Hawkins likely unavailable Thursday

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 16:22:22 -0700

New York Mets RP LaTroy Hawkins is likely unavailable on Thursday, Aug. 15. Manager Terry Collins indicated that Gonzalez Germen or David Aardsma may close if the team encounters a save situation in the club's contest tonight.

Fantasy Tip: Hawkins blew a first save on Wednesday, his first since Bobby Parnell (neck) went on the DL, and his 40-year-old bones probably need a break. He still remains the favorite for saves for the Mets, although those mentioned may vulture opportunities a little more often than a regular closer would.

Mets | LaTroy Hawkins to close

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 14:50:41 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins expects to use RP LaTroy Hawkins to close for the second straight day if a situation arises Wednesday, Aug. 7. Hawkins picked up his first save of the year Tuesday, Aug. 6.

Fantasy Tip: It looks as though Hawkins will have the first crack at closing for the Mets in the absence of Bobby Parnell (neck), but Scott Rice could also be used in left-heavy situations. Don't rule out David Aardsma seeing a chance or two if Hawkins falters, too. For fantasy purposes, Hawkins should be your first target.

Mets | Bobby Parnell may need surgery

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 14:03:54 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (neck) may need to undergo surgery if the epidural injection he received Monday, Aug. 5, does not work.

Fantasy Tip: Surgery would almost assuredly keep Parnell from returning again this year. That would make David Aardsma, LaTroy Hawkins, Scott Rice or whoever else takes advantage of his absence more valuable in deeper leagues. This could be a very frustrating closer-by-committee situation for fantasy owners, though.

Mets | Will mix and match at closer

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 13:04:04 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said the team will mix and match in the ninth inning with RP Bobby Parnell (neck) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: David Aardsma and LaTroy Hawkins are the most likely options to be used in the ninth, but other candidates could emerge, such as Scott Rice. Remember, Parnell can return Aug. 15, so this might just be a short-term solution.
