Mets | Ruben Tejada out of the lineup

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 13:33:19 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Monday, Aug. 3. SS Wilmer Flores will start at shortstop and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and will return to the lineup soon. Flores ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting .251 this season with 11 home runs and 42 RBI this season and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Mets | Daniel Murphy starting at 3B

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 13:18:45 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy will start at third base against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Monday, Aug. 3, and is batting second in the lineup. OF Kelly Johnson will start at second base and is batting sixth in the lineup. 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been playing at different positions but remains in the lineup. He has recorded at least one hit in seven of his last nine games with six RBI in that span. He could be a solid option for owners on FantasyScore. Johnson ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has only four hits in six games since joining the Mets and is not a great option.

Mets | Kirk Nieuwenhuis placed on DL

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 20:08:31 -0700

New York Mets OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis (neck, shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, Aug. 2, because of neck and should discomfort. The team also recalled OF Michael Conforto from Class AAA Las Vegas.

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will be sidelined for several weeks, so owners should avoid him while he is out. Conforto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) should see some playing time while he is with the Mets and could be an option on FantasyScore against certain matchups.

Mets | Michael Conforto demoted

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 06:05:47 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto was sent to Class AAA Las Vegas Saturday, Aug. 1, to make room for OF Yoenis Cespedes.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto hit just .211 with zero home runs through 23 plate appearances with the Mets. He'll almost definitely be back in the majors once rosters expand, but owners will now know to temper their expectations.

Mets | David Wright nearing rehab

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 06:01:55 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) will travel with the team to Miami and continue his workouts. Wright will soon begin rehab games, and manager Terry Collins said there's no question Wright will play again this season.

Fantasy Tip: Wright has played in just eight games this season. Owners with the roster space could add Wright out of speculation, but they should hold their expectations in check upon his eventual return.

Mets | Jeurys Familia throws perfect inning

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:51:25 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia threw a perfect ninth inning Saturday, Aug. 1, to pick up his 28th save of the season, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Familia had been struggling of late, blowing his past three save opportunities. Familia continues to receive the confidence of his manager, and he should continue to hold onto the closer's role.

Mets | Lucas Duda pads homer total

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 20:59:06 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda went 3-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, two runs scored and a walk in a 3-2 win over the Washington Nationals Saturday, Aug. 1, and he has eight home runs in his last seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has 10 RBI and eight runs scored during the same seven-game stretch, and he is a bargain at FantasyScore right now.

Mets | Kelly Johnson hitting sixth

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:31:44 -0700

New York Mets OF Kelly Johnson is starting in right field and hitting sixth in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Washington Nationals and RHP Joe Ross. OF Michael Conforto comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is hitting a pedestrian .265 against righties this year, although he does have nine home runs. He can be considered for use in GPP tournaments on FantasyScore.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes hitting third

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:25:39 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes will start in left field and hit third in the order in his debut Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Washington Nationals and RHP Joe Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) will have an excellent opportunity to make an instant impact as he is hitting .321 with 15 home runs against right-handed pitching this season. FantasyScore owners should be looking at him as the Mets best FantasyScore option.

Mets | David Wright rehab update

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 18:31:47 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) is building stamina in order to work out multiple days in a row without experiencing discomfort. Once he is able to do this, he will begin facing live pitching.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) said he has a return date in mind but isn't ready to share it with the public. However, he is a notoriously slow healer and is likely to need a lengthy rehab assignment before coming back. Wright was batting .333 with a home run and four RBIs through eight games prior to landing on the disabled list.

Mets | Michael Conforto sitting

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:49:19 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 31. 3B Eric Campbell is starting in left field and is hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets traded for Yoenis Cespedes right at the trade deadline Friday, so Conforto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could be headed back to the minors if the Mets want to make sure he receives regular at-bats. Either way, Conforto's fantasy value will take a big hit after being a short-term solution for those in deeper leagues. Conforto should still be owned in dynasty leagues, though. Campbell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) doesn't deserve consideration in your daily lineups.

Mets | Lucas Duda sitting against lefty

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:36:24 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is not in the starting lineup versus Washington Nationals left-handed SP Gio Gonzalez Friday, July 31. 2B Daniel Murphy is starting at first base and hitting third in the lineup, while SS Wilmer Flores gets the start at the keystone and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: We don't recommend using Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) against a left-handed pitcher, as he's hitting only .174 (12-for-69) against them this year with none of his six home runs. Gonzalez has been pitching very well of late, too. Flores ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) does have 10 home runs and is a midrange shortstop play to save money elsewhere on your roster.

Mets | Updated Michael Cuddyer timeline

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 13:23:22 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) is expected to begin a rehab assignment next week and could be activated from the disabled list as early as next weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) fantasy stock is dwindling, and he might not be capable of playing every day with his nagging knee injury. Michael Conforto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could see fewer at-bats when Cuddyer returns, so the rookie's value may be fleeting. It is a situation to monitor.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes dealt to the Mets

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:50:26 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, The New York Mets acquired OF Yoenis Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers in exchange for two minor league players Friday, July 31, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) will take a slight fantasy hit going to the Mets, but he remains a high-end No. 2 outfielder in the majority of leagues. He has 62 runs, 18 home runs and 61 RBI this season with a .293/.323/.506 slash line. Make sure to avoid him at FantasyScore Friday. One ripple of the deal is rookie Michael Conforto ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could find himself as the odd man out when Michael Cuddyer ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) returns from his knee injury, or at least, there will be competitions for at-bats.

Mets | David Wright fielding grounder

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:46:51 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) fielded ground balls at third base Friday, July 31, and he has been participating in more baseball activities this week.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as next week, so for the first time in a long time, there may be progress in his recovery. Still, he is a notoriously slow healer and has only played eight games this season. He is worth stashing, but keep your expectations in check with this version of Captain America.
