Mets | Eric Campbell will be primary third baseman

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:32:39 -0700

New York Mets 3B/1B Eric Campbell will be the primary third baseman while 3B David Wright (hamstring) is out. INF Danny Muno will also receive a few starts at the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Consider Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) a nice low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests if he finds a groove at the plate. He is currently 2-for-8 with two runs and a RBI for the season. Campbell also has fleeting value in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Mets | David Wright likely out three weeks

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 14:09:56 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) could return in two weeks, however, three weeks is a more realistic timeline, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Stash Wright in all formats and check back for updates on his recovery and for an official announcement on when he'll return. In his absence, Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has fleeting value in NL-only formats and is a potential low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests when facing a favorable pitching matchup. Still, expectations should be kept in check with Campbell, as he returned a .263/.322/.358 slash line over 190 at-bats last season.

Mets | David Wright placed on DL

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 11:10:10 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list Wednesday, April 15. The Mets recalled 3B Eric Campbell from the minors in a corresponding move. Wright's injury is being called a "mild" strain of his right hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) might only need two weeks of rest since his injury is mild, but that's only if he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit .263 with three home runs in 190 at-bats in New York in 2014. He's not a power threat really, which will limit him to NL-only leagues in the short term with consistent playing time in Wright's absence.

Mets | David Wright scheduled for MRI

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 21:29:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) is scheduled for an MRI Wednesday, April 15. Beat writer Adam Rubin said Wright sounds prepared to go on the 15-day disabled list. Wright said missing two weeks is preferable to pushing through, causing a major issue.

Fantasy Tip: If Captain America indeed hits the DL, look for Eric Campbell ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) and Ruben Tejada ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) are each likely to see more at-bats for FantasyScore players.

Mets | David Wright injures hamstring

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 20:01:05 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) left the game Tuesday, April 14, against the Philadelphia Phillies due to a pulled right hamstring. A stint on the 15-day disabled list might be a possibility.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100; or 8.2% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore going forward until he can officially prove his health in a game or two without any lingering effects of the injury. Eric Campbell ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) and Ruben Tejada ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) figure to see more playing time if Captain America is forced to the DL.

Mets | David Wright batting second

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 11:47:46 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is batting second in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Monday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) only hit .269 with eight home runs last season, so he will look to improve on those totals. Wright should be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore but is not a must-start player.

Mets | David Wright ready to rebound

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 06:54:15 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright's power and quickness is back in his bat after battling neck and shoulder injuries last season, according to manager Terry Collins. "There's no reason why he can't do what (he has) always done," Collins said.

Fantasy Tip: Wright has had a solid spring with a .273-4-11 line in 44 at-bats. He'll still have to contend with the spacious confines of Citi Field, but there's hope he can return to the .295-20-90 range. One important question is if the 32-year-old can return to his 15-steals form. He stole eight bases last year and was caught five times. At $5,100 (10.2% of your cap), Wright is a daily consideration at the hot corner on FantasyScore.

Mets | David Wright might hit second

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 13:52:50 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright may be moved out of the third spot in the lineup in 2015. The Mets are playing with their lineup in spring training, and they are thinking of moving Wright into the No. 2 spot. Wright has hit second three times this spring, and manager Terry Collins confirmed that the team is thinking about this move occasionally. Wright said a move in the lineup won't bother his ego at all. He hit third in all 133 starts in 2014, in 109 of 111 starts in 2013 and 144 of 155 starts in 2012.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't appear that this would be a full-time lineup switch, but just on occasion. It could give Wright a chance to see some additional at-bats over the course of the entire season, which would be a plus for his fantasy value. In the long run, it probably won't change much, though. Despite a drop to just eight home runs last year, you typical know what you're getting from Wright - decent power numbers and plenty of job security. The Citi Field fences were moved in, too, so expect a rebound in power from Wright.

Mets | David Wright hits third spring bomb

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 14:17:05 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright hit his third home run of the spring Tuesday, March 24. He is currently batting .303 (10-for-33) with 10 RBI.

Fantasy Tip: It isn't wise to overreact to spring training statistics, but Wright has performed at an elite level in the past. His 2014 struggles are largely being chalked up to shoulder troubles, and he is widely available in the early middle rounds of drafts, which could present profit potential. There is upside for a rebound year, and with third base a rather weak fantasy position, Wright could approach the top tier.

Mets | David Wright takes the field

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 13:13:44 -0800

New York Mets 3B David Wright (shoulder) took the field for an intrasquad game Tuesday, March 3, which marked the first time since his shoulder injury last season that he saw action.

Fantasy Tip: Wright told reporters his shoulder was fine afterward and it had been through all of spring training. Wright hit .269-8-63 last season and scored just 54 runs, so his fantasy value has taken a huge hit from his days of 25-30 homers a year. Wright could be a sleeper if his shoulder has healed, but for now he's no better than a mid-round selection.
