Mets | David Wright hitting cleanup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:18:43 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is starting at third base and batting fourth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Michael Cuddyer draws out of the lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Hitting in the heart of a scorching hot lineup, Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a high-end play at FantasyScore Thursday, especially at his current salary. Wright is going to receive some games off, but he still warrants ownership in the majority of seasonal leagues. Similarly, Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) isn't going to be a daily fixture in the lineup, which is a hit to his value.

Mets | David Wright to play next three games

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:08:41 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is expected to play the next three games after having a day off Wednesday, Aug. 26, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets are being cautious with Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) after he returned from a lengthy stint on the DL this past Monday. After hitting a solo homer in his first game back, he was hitless in four at-bats Tuesday, and he has four strikeouts in nine at-bats. Expect ups and downs from him the rest of the way.

Mets | David Wright taking a breather

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:37:00 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is not in the starting lineup, as expected, Wednesday, Aug. 26. 2B Daniel Murphy moves back to second base, and 3B Juan Uribe is starting at third base and is hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking Mets hitters against Eickhoff, who is making his second major league start, isn't a bad idea. Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has more upside for the price. Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) still has power in his old age, but he's hitting .239 (57-for-238) against right-handers this season.

Mets | David Wright to sit Wednesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:11:34 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is expected to sit out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26, after being in the lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, Aug. 25, following his activation from the disabled list. Manager Terry Collins said there is a "good chance" Wright will sit out Wednesday. Wright was 2-for-5 with a solo home run and three runs scored in his first game back Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Wright's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) impressive performance in his first game back should make you very optimistic that he can finish the final month strong. He definitely needs to be owned in all formats, and if he can keep this up, he'll be a strong third base option on FantasyScore.

Mets | David Wright returns with solo homer

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 21:52:40 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) returned to the lineup Monday, Aug. 24, against the Philadelphia Phillies. He went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a walk and three runs scored in the return.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) made it through a full game without any setbacks. It appears safe to get him back into the active lineup in FantasyScore, as he is off to a good start in his return.

Mets | David Wright batting fourth

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:36:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) is batting fourth against Phildadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Monday, Aug. 24. 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: View Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) as a risky option at FantasyScore Monday, but at least he owns the handedness advantage against Morgan ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) who owns a 5.04 FIP this season. In seasonal formats, you'll want to keep your expectations in check with Wright. He has missed all kinds of time, and he isn't expected to play every day.

Mets | David Wright will start Monday

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 09:07:05 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) will be activated from the disabled list and start at third base against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, Aug. 24. Manager Terry Collins said he can foresee hitting Wright second in the batting order, but no lineup has been determined yet.

Fantasy Tip: Keep your expectations tempered for Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) since he has missed so much time, and he won't play every day. He also may struggle at the plate and might not show much power as he returns from a pretty serious ailment. A matchup against Phillips starter Adam Morgan is a nice one to return to, but FantasyScore users should still be very hesitant to use Wright in his first game back.

Mets | David Wright to rejoin team Monday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:38:21 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) will be activated from the disabled list for the series against the Philadelphia Phillies that starts Monday, Aug. 24. He will play his final rehab games with Class A St. Lucie Friday, Aug. 21, and Saturday, Aug. 22. Wright last played in a major league game April 14, and he is hitting .300 (6-for-20) with five walks and five strikeouts in six rehab games.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is likely to split time with Juan Uribe at third base when he returns. Pick him up now if he's still available in your league. With such a long layoff, it's probably smartest to take a wait-and-see approach with Wright on FantasyScore.

Mets | David Wright unlikely to play every day

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:53:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) is unlikely to be an everyday player when he returns from the disabled list, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could return as soon as Monday, Aug. 24. He is worth owning in the majority of leagues, but this news about his playing time should reaffirm he isn't going to be a fantasy savior. In fact, there is no guarantee he adds much of anything in terms of viable fantasy production down the stretch. Continue to check back for updates and don't let your expectations run wild with the injury-plagued veteran.

Mets | David Wright won't return before Monday

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 12:45:56 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) will not come off the disabled list any sooner than Monday, Aug. 24. Rosters expand eight days later, so the Mets are in no rush to "unload" anyone from their roster.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) remains on a minor league rehab assignment but is expected to return next week. He should be owned in all leagues, but don't expect him to immediately carry your team down the stretch. Juan Uribe will lose out on valuable playing time when Wright returns.
