Mets | NYM interested in Danny Valencia

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 18:07:52 -0700

The New York Mets have expressed interest in trading for Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia, in the wake of 3B David Wright (neck) opting to undergo neck surgery that could sideline him for the remainder of the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: The 31-year-old Valencia is enjoying a career year, batting .327 with 10 home runs and 26 RBI in 171 at-bats entering play Friday, June 17, and he is a viable option in all fantasy formats. INF Wilmer Flores, who is receiving the bulk of the action at third base for the Mets now, would revert back to being used as a super-utility player if Valencia is acquired.

Mets | David Wright undergoes surgery

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 16:24:17 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) underwent a successful cervical discectomy and fusion surgery, Thursday, June 16, according to the team. There has been no timetable announced.

Fantasy Tip: The early estimations are that Wright will miss the rest of the season. Even if he is able to make it back this year, it wouldn't be until months down the line, and even then it's uncertain if he could be trusted in any fantasy format. His owners should be expecting the worst. Wilmer Flores and Kelly Johnson each get boosts while Wright is sidelined indefinitely.

Mets | David Wright likely finished for 2016

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 12:06:25 -0700

Updtaing a previous report, New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) is expected to require three to six months of recovery from his upcoming neck surgery. The timeline makes a return during the 2016 season highly unlikely.

Fantasy Tip: View Wright as a desperation stash in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and look to replace him in all shallower setups. Wilmer Flores and Kelly Johnson project to split starts at the hot corner, but neither are anything more than low-end options in the deepest of formats. Dilson Herrera is a player to watch, as he has a .296/.344/.510 slash line with Class AAA Las Vegas and could find his way to the majors sooner than later.

Mets | David Wright to undergo surgery

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 08:32:48 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) will undergo surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck.

Fantasy Tip: There's no timetable for his return, but it could be a season-ending operation. There was a report the team wasn't interested in Jose Reyes, but he would make a lot of sense now. Otherwise, Wilmer Flores and Kelly Johnson figure to see the most action at third. Flores has NL-only value because he hit 16 homers last season, but KJ doesn't at this point. If you own Wright, he's more of a name than a contributor anymore. You can hold onto him in deeper leagues, but cut bait elsewhere.

Mets | Neck surgery for David Wright?

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:08:09 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) is discussing possible neck surgery with Dr. Robert Watkins in consultation with Mets doctors. Wright will come to a conclusion soon on which direction to head.

Fantasy Tip: Right now this should come as no surprise to Wright owners and Mets fans. Injuries have sapped his power and held him to just 75 games over the past two seasons. Wright's batting average stands at .226, the lowest of his career. You may want to stash Wright on your bench for now, with the idea of dropping Wright outright or shelving him to next year if he elects surgery. For now, Wilmer Flores and Ty Kelly will man the hot corner, but neither has proven himself at the plate for fantasy consideration. Kelly Johnson could play third base as well, and he has some fantasy value.

Mets | David Wright visiting specialist Monday

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 13:26:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) has an appointment with Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles Monday, June 6. Watkins is the specialist treating Wright for the spinal stenosis in his lower back. The Mets do not believe there is a connection between Wright's back injury and the current herniated disk issue in his neck, and manager Terry Collins adamantly believes Wright will return this season.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is a desperation stash in all formats at this point. The Mets are already looking outside the organization for his replacement, and he wasn't particularly helpful to fantasy owners before the injury. Look for Wilmer Flores to see the majority of starts at the hot corner for the foreseeable future, but as it stands, he is a low-end own in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Mets could explore other 3B options

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 10:21:55 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) has a herniated disk that will require up to two months of rest and most likely will keep him sidelined through the majority of August. As a result, the team may look to explore other options at the hot corner outside of the organization, specifically Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia and Minnesota Twins 3B Trevor Plouffe.

Fantasy Tip: It's not looking good for the longtime Met, as he was also dealing with spinal stenosis in his back, which was the area of concern last year when he missed 124 ballgames. His owners have to be expecting the worst outcome concerning Wright. While Wilmer Flores is expected to get the first crack at the job in the interim, New York would probably be better off adding someone the caliber of Plouffe and Valencia, who are both more proven. Both should be available, with their respective teams not expected to contend for the postseason.

Mets | David Wright to DL, could miss months

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 09:48:29 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, June 3, retroactive to May 30, with a herniated disk in his neck. The injury will require six to eight weeks of rest from baseball activities, during which the former All-Star will undergo physiotherapy to protect the area. After his rest period, Wright will resume baseball activity. The team also recalled 3B Matt Reynolds from Class AAA as a result.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't sound good for the 13-year veteran. Wright missed all but 38 games a year ago, and he could be facing a similar-in-length absence this season, too, as the given timeline means he'll be out until at least about mid-August, if not longer. With him sidelined, Wilmer Flores will probably get the biggest boost, though he's tailed off significantly from his solid showing in 2015. Reynolds will also get some starts, but comes with an extremely low ceiling. He has just one hit in 10 career at-bats.

Mets | David Wright headed to disabled list

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 18:45:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, the New York Mets are expected to place 3B David Wright (neck) on the 15-day disabled list due to a herniated disc in his neck. At this point, it is unknown if the injury will require surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is batting .226 with seven home runs and 14 RBI through 137 at-bats this season but hasn't played since Friday, May 27, and appears likely to miss a significant chunk of time. The 33-year-old veteran should be stashed in NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues but can be let go in shallow mixed formats. Wilmer Flores is the most likely candidate to see the bulk of the playing time at the hot corner and he should be owned in NL-only and deep mixed leagues due to his power potential and positional versatility.

Mets | Matthew Reynolds to be promoted

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 18:32:41 -0700

The New York Mets are expected to promote INF Matthew Reynolds from Class AAA Las Vegas. He will occupy the vacancy on the 25-man roster that will be created when 3B David Wright (neck) is placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The 25-year-old Reynolds as batting just .230 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 130 at-bats for Las Vegas and is 1-for-10 in the majors this season. He could see some time at the hot corner along with Wilmer Flores, Eric Campbell and Ty Kelly while Wright is sidelined but he is not a recommended option in any fantasy format.
