Fantasy Tip: This is bad news for a Mets bullpen that was already taxed due to Jenrry Mejia's 80-game suspension. Blevins had some fantasy value because of Mejia's absence, but right now your best bet is to look elsewhere. Buddy Carlyle could save some games.

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (illness) allowed four runs on eight hits with seven strikeouts in six innings Sunday, April 19, and he picked up the win. He admitted to media that he felt weak and had been unable to swallow for the past few days.
Fantasy Tip: Not bad for someone who was sick. Harvey ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is still rebounding from Tommy John surgery, but he still looked solid in his latest outing. He's a good play as long as Harvey keeps this up.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) had gotten off to a good start this season, batting .317 with two home runs and 10 RBIs through 11 games. Anthony Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is expected to become the Mets' everyday catcher during his absence.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not played in the last few days and has only received seven at-bats in 2015. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option to use.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 07:52:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not seen many at-bats early this season and is still looking for his first hit. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use in their lineup.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 07:43:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has played in every game so far this season and is likely receiving a day off. Kirk Nieuwenhuis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will receive a start but is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore since he has gone hitless in eight at bats.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 07:29:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has played pretty well since taking over at third base. He has posted one RBI in each of his last three games and is coming off a 2-for-3 performance in his last game. Campbell could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 05:39:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: There was no indication Cuddyer's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) day off is injury related or who will play left field Sunday. Make sure to remove Cuddyer from your fantasy lineups.

Fantasy Tip: If Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is traded or pitches poorly in his next few outings, P Rafael Montero is considered the heavy favorite to move into the starting rotation to replace him. Gee is 0-1 with a 7.59 ERA through two starts this season.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:07:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Colon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has allowed three earned runs or less and struck out at least five in all three starts, and while he is unlikely to sustain his current pace, there is no reason you can't ride Colon at FantasyScore until he cools off.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:32:39 -0700
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.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:21:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has allowed nine earned runs through 10 2/3 innings over his first two starts, although he did fan seven Miami Marlins in his outing Thursday, April 16. Still, he is a risky FantasyScore start until he finds a groove. There is potential Noah Syndergaard's arrival with the big club may happen sooner than expected if he pitches well in Triple-A Las Vegas. Syndergaard is worth stashing in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

New York Mets RP/SP Rafael Montero will start against the Miami Marlins Tuesday, April 28, according to manager Terry Collins. Collins noted it may only be a single start, but that SP Dillon Gee is on a short leash.
Fantasy Tip: While Montero flashed some strikeout potential through his eight starts last year, his results weren't impressive. He posted a 3.98 ERA, a 1.47 WHP and a 1-3 record. Add that it is unlikely he'll pitch deep into the game, and there is no reason to take a leap of faith with Montero in FantasyScore contests.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:09:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Friday. Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier, and hitting in front of the pitcher does him no favors. FantasyScore players should likely aim higher.

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) pitched one inning for High-A St. Lucie Thursday, April 16. He allowed two runs and two hits without a strikeout. His fastball was between 89-93 mph in the outing.
Fantasy Tip: Parnell will likely need more time on the farm before returning. He could figure into the closing mix soon after he returns, but Jeurys Familia has converted four saves this week. Stash Parnell in deep leagues.
