New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) caught a full game Tuesday, July 28, for Class AA Binghamton for the first time during his minor-league rehab assignment. He was 1-for-4 with a run scored. He is scheduled to catch another full game for the B-Mets Wednesday, July 29.
Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has 15 at-bats under his belt during his rehab assignment. He could be back as soon as this weekend, but FantasyScore players will want to give him at least a full game to prove his health before trusting him again.

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard took a perfect game into the seventh inning Tuesday, July 28, against the San Diego Padres, and he ended up throwing eight scoreless innings in the win. He allowed three hits with no walks and nine strikeouts.
Fantasy Tip: Syndergaard ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is 0-4 with a 4.34 ERA in seven road outings with the opposition hitting .268 against him. However, he is 5-1 with a 1.46 ERA in seven home starts with 51 strikeouts over 49 1/3 innings at home. FantasyScore players will be pleased to see he is home again Sunday against Washington, so take advantage.

New York Mets OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis entered the game Tuesday, July 28, against the San Diego Padres with five hits in seven at-bats with four RBIs, so he started in place of OF Juan Lagares for a third straight game.
Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) finally was hitless in three at-bats Tuesday, so Lagares might get his chance to start again. Be careful of Lagares, however, as he has struggled against right-handed pitching all season long.

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares was not in the starting lineup for the third straight game Tuesday, July 28, against the San Diego Padres, as manager Terry Collins gives OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis another start since he is on a roll.
Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has struggled against right-handed pitching anyway, so it is no loss for FantasyScore players.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:53:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Matz ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has not pitched for three weeks but appears to be making some progress. Owners should monitor his progress to see when he will be able to return to the starting rotation.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:43:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has not played since April 14, so he likely will need a good amount of rehab games before he is able to return to the Mets. Owners should monitor the situation to receive a better timetable for his return.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:42:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Niese ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) likely will return to the starting rotation in the near future. He struggled in his last start but held opponents to three runs or less in the previous eight starts. Niese could be a solid option against certain matchups.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:07:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Nimmo is hitting .270 with two home runs and 18 RBI in the minors this season and could receive another promotion later in the season. Owners on deeper and NL-only leagues could keep an eye out his progress since he could be an option down the road.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia was supposed to begin the season as the Mets closer, but he ended up playing in just seven games after making his return from the first suspension July 12. Mejia won't begin the 2016 season with any fantasy value, and he'll need to have a spot to return to in order to be an option later on in the year.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:53:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is receiving his first start since joining the Mets and could see more time moving forward. He is hitting .263 with three home runs and eight RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:43:07 -0700
New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy will start at second base against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Tuesday, July 28, and is batting second in the lineup. 2B Kelly Johnson is not in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could see more time at second base with the team acquiring Juan Uribe. He has at least one hit in eight of his last nine hits with five RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using him because of his production.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:57:54 -0700
New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) took ground balls Tuesday, July 28, and will continue to do more baseball activities on back-to-back days. He might take some batting practice Wednesday, July 29, but no date has been set for him to play in rehab games.
Fantasy Tip: With no return date in sight for Wright ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) his owners have to seriously wonder if he'll make much of an impact at all for the rest of this season. If you don't have the room to stash him in a shallow league, we wouldn't blame you for dropping him.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was rumored to be flipped in another deal before the deadline, but the Mets haven't seen enough from Reyes to take on the contract. He should post good numbers in Colorado if he stays.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:01:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) may have too big a contract for the Mets to handle, but Gonzalez's fantasy value depends on where he eventually lands.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:44:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Clippard was acquired from the Oakland Athletics Monday, but he is not expected to close in Queens like he was previously doing in Oakland. His fantasy value in standard leagues takes a hit as a result, although he is a solid addition in NL-only rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories. He can also be a boon to fantasy owners in leagues which offer holds as a category.
