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 | Closer change might be coming

Sat, 19 Apr 2014 20:20:15 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins hinted Saturday, April 19, that he is changing closers. He said he did not want to address the topic publicly until he addressed players, though.

Fantasy Tip: Jose Valverde allowed three unearned runs, one hit and a walk in an inning of work in a non-save situation Saturday against the Atlanta Braves in the ninth inning. It appears he is out of a job. It's uncertain if the team will promote Vic Black or Jeurys Familia, use Gonzalez Germen or go with a closer-by-committee. For now, Valverde is worth keeping in NL-only leagues, but reserve him.

Mets | Curtis Granderson to be dropped in lineup

Sat, 19 Apr 2014 19:39:11 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday, April 19, that the struggling OF Curtis Granderson will be dropped from the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson has stumbled out of the chute and shown no signs of life in the first month of the season. He is worth keeping on a roster in all NL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats, but keep him reserved until he can find his groove.

Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka considered insurance

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 18:50:06 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he considers SP Daisuke Matsuzaka as a candidate to start if SP Bartolo Colon (back) or SP Jenrry Mejia (finger) are not able to make their next scheduled start.

Mets | Ike Davis traded

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 15:49:47 -0700

The New York Mets agreed to trade 1B Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, April 18. It's unknown what the Mets will receive in return.

Fantasy Tip: As Terry Collins has said already, Lucas Duda is now clearly the starting first baseman in New York. Josh Satin can mix in against tough lefties, but this is Duda's job all the way now. There's more reason to take a chance on Duda's power in mixed leagues.

Mets | Take a look at Joel Hanrahan

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 13:08:26 -0700

The New York Mets attended a showcase by free-agent RP Joel Hanrahan (Red Sox) Thursday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets are sticking with Jose Valverde in the closer role, but they don't have many options behind him in case he implodes. Don't forget about Hanrahan, who seems likely to sign with a team if he's fully healthy.

Mets | Jose Valverde still the closer

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 17:01:00 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said RP Jose Valverde remains the team's closer after allowing home runs to three of the last eight batters he's faced. Valverde gave up two home runs with a five-run lead in the ninth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, April 16. His ERA has risen to 6.14.

Fantasy Tip: It's way too soon to start looking for a change at the back end of the Mets' bullpen. Valverde will be prone to the long ball, but he's earned a little more rope to start the season. New York doesn't have a wealth of other options with closing experience, either.

Mets | 1B still a revolving door

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:55:38 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is still considered the starter at first base, but 1B Ike Davis has started there once in each series and got the start Wednesday, April 16. 1B Josh Satin has started three games against lefties. Duda is hitting .364 (8-for-22) with a home run and four RBIs in his last five starts, but manager Terry Collins said Davis received the nod Wednesday because of his history at Chase Field and the fact that he wanted to get Davis a start in his hometown.

Fantasy Tip: This is a situation to stay away from unless you're in an NL-only league. Duda is the guy to own if you must have one of the trio.

Mets | Lucas Duda, Ike Davis unlikely to be demoted

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:04:03 -0700

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said 1Bs Lucas Duda and Ike Davis are unlikely to be sent down to make room on the roster for OF Chris Young (quadriceps) Friday, April 18.
