Mets | Jon Niese says he's ready to return

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 15:21:33 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese (hamstring) threw a bullpen session before the game Friday, July 18, and said he's ready to return from the disabled list to face off against the Seattle Mariners Monday, July 21. Niese has been on the DL since June 22 with a strained left hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Look to start Niese next week if you own him. If his owner let go of him recently, he's worth picking up in deep mixed formats.

Mets | Jeremy Hefner throws two innings

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 13:29:27 -0700

New York Mets SP Jeremy Hefner (elbow) struck out a batter, allowed two hits, a run and did not issue a walk over two innings Thursday, July 17, for the organization's Gulf Coast League affiliate.

Fantasy Tip: Hefner is recovering from Tommy John surgery and hopes to return to the majors this season. He could be worth a flier in NL-only leagues, if he continues to rehab successfully.

Mets | Rotation set for San Diego series

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:45:27 -0700

New York Mets SPs Bartolo Colon, Dillon Gee and Zack Wheeler will pitch against the San Diego Padres in next weekend's series, which begins Friday, July 18. Manager Terry Collins has not determined the rest of the rotation, but said SP Jacob deGrom will remain in the starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Jon Niese's health will influence the backend of the rotation going forward. However, it appears Daisuke Matsuzaka will lose his spot when Niese returns. deGrom's value stabilizes, and he is emerging as a viable option in mixed leagues.

Mets | Jon Niese update

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:18:28 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese (shoulder) threw 37 pitches Sunday, July 13, and is expected to throw again Friday, July 18. Manager Terry Collins hopes Niese will return Monday, July 21, at the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Niese has low-end mixed league value. His return to the rotation will bump Daisuke Matsuzaka out.

Mets | David Wright needed rest

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:04:56 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright's (shoulder) recent hot streak (.345 batting average, two home runs and five RBIs since Saturday, July 5) has been attributed to his shoulder feeling better after resting seven games, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Wright isn't 100 percent and has his lack of home runs have hurt his value. If he can turn this recent surge into a prolonged streak, he could begin to live up to his lofty draft day price tag.
