Mets | Alejandro De Aza in the lineup

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 15:04:43 -0700

New York Mets OF Alejandro De Aza is hitting seventh Saturday, June 25, and playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: De Aza could see regular playing time with the demotion of Michael Conforto for the next few days. He's hitting just .176 this season and isn't worth a flyer today against Julio Teheran.

Mets | Jose Reyes to lead off when ready

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 14:17:03 -0700

New York Mets SS Jose Reyes will move to the top of the order once he arrives from what is expected to be a short minor-league stint, during which time he is expected to play some third base and perhaps some time in center field. OF Curtis Granderson will move to an RBI spot, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: The injured David Wright still lead the Mets with three steals - a clear sign New York needs the speed Reyes can provide even if he is no longer in the prime of his career at 33 years old. Since Yoenis Cespedes and Neil Walker will likely occupy the third and fourth spots in the order on a regular basis, Granderson will probably bat fifth or sixth. Regardless, Granderson's average (.219) and RBI total (21) should both benefit from hitting behind Cespedes and Walker.

Mets | Bartolo Colon set to start Sunday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 14:02:04 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (thumb) has been confirmed as the team's starting pitcher for Sunday, June 26, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Colon left the team briefly to attend his son's graduation in New Jersey, but his status was really never in doubt after completing a bullpen session on Thursday. He makes for a solid, low-cost option in DFS and should be a respectable start in regular leagues as well.

Mets | Alejandro De Aza playing left field

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 12:33:45 -0700

New York Mets OF Alejandro De Aza will bat seventh and play left field against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: With Michael Conforto being optioned to Class AAA Las Vegas earlier this afternoon and top prospect OF Brandon Nimmo on his way to join the parent club, De Aza receives the start in left field Saturday. He is batting just .176 in 85 at-bats this season and is not a viable option in any fantasy format.

Mets | Jose Reyes signed

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:44:36 -0700

The New York Mets have signed free-agent SS Jose Reyes (Rockies) to a minor-league contract. He will report to Class A Brooklyn and make his debut Sunday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: The 33-year-old Reyes is worth owning in the majority of seasonal fantasy leagues due to his stolen base potential, although he is no longer in the prime of his career. He is expected to see most, if not all, of his playing time at third base during his rehab assignment and could be promoted to the majors around the All-Star break. Until then, the Mets will continue to platoon Wilmer Flores and Kelly Johnson at the hot corner.

Mets | Michael Conforto likely to be demoted

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:13:59 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is expected to be demoted to Class AAA Las Vegas. OF Brandon Nimmo will be promoted from Las Vegas and will take over as the everyday left fielder.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto got off to a strong start in 2016, batting .365 through 86 at-bats during the month of April, but he was just 21-for-142 (.148) at the dish since May 1, with 48 strikeouts. He can be dropped in the majority of seasonal fantasy leagues but should remain stashed in dynasty formats. The 23-year-old Nimmo was batting .328 with five home runs and 37 RBI through 63 games for Las Vegas and is worth rostering in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Mets | Steven Matz's elbow still tight

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 20:54:58 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz (elbow) allowed six runs, all in the fifth inning, on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Atlanta Braves Friday, June 24, and he said afterward that he is still dealing with tightness in his elbow.

Fantasy Tip: Matz has struggled a bit recently, and his elbow could certainly be a factor. Stay the course in season-long leagues, but he is a risky DFS play right now.

Mets | Big night for James Loney

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 20:45:11 -0700

New York Mets 1B James Loney went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, three RBI and three runs scored in an 8-6 win over the Atlanta Braves Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Loney won't provide much power, but he is hitting .305 and is worth a look in NL-only formats thanks to his solid average.

Mets | Jose Reyes a topic of dicussion for Mets

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:12:03 -0700

Pending free-agent SS Jose Reyes' (Mets) fit with the New York Mets is being discussed within the organization because the team is optimistic it will be able to sign Reyes Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes is worth ownership in the majority of seasonal leagues because of his stolen base prowess. However, he posted an underwhelming .274/.310/.378 slash line last year and played his home games at two great hitter's parks (Rogers Centre and Coors Field). Reyes will also need a rehab stint to catch up to speed, so he might not be back until after the All-Star break.

Mets | Solid velocity for Matt Harvey

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 20:11:19 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey's fastball was clocked in the mid-90s in his start against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, June 23. He allowed two runs on eight hits while striking out three over six innings in a no-decision.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey's recent rebound continued, and he should back in starting lineups across all formats.

Mets | Neil Walker snaps drought

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 19:32:16 -0700

New York Mets 2B Neil Walker snapped a five-game hitless drought, finishing 2-for-2 with a walk in a 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves Thursday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Walker has decent pop for a middle infielder, and he is worth owning in most mixed leagues.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes cleared to play

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:21:22 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (wrist) was cleared to play Thursday, June 23, but the organization wanted to provide him with a day of rest after receiving a cortisone shot, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes is an excellent outfielder in all fantasy setups, so stash him while he rests his wrist injury. Expect him back sooner than later, which further limits any fleeting value Alejandro De Aza had with Cespedes out.

Mets | A cautious start for Steven Matz Friday

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:15:32 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz (elbow) will have his start against the Atlanta Braves approached cautiously Friday, June 24, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Matz has battled injuries since debuting in the majors last season, but when on the hill, he delivers. Through his 18 career starts, Matz owns a 2.58 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP and a 8.9 K/9. View him as a No. 2 hurler for your virtual rotation, but he clearly comes with a little more risk than usual Friday.

Mets | Bartolo Colon expected to start Sunday

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:01:20 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (thumb) will throw a bullpen session to test his bruised right thumb Thursday, June 23, and is still expected to start against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, June 26, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Colon is having a nice season with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP, but his 56 strikeouts through 81 innings limit his upside. He's a viable own in deep mixed leagues, and this is a nice matchup to start him in all fantasy formats. Just confirm he's over his thumb injury before locking him into lineups.

Mets | Noah Syndergaard will start Monday

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 12:57:20 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard (elbow) will start against the Washington Nationals Monday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Syndergaard is a fantasy ace (2.08 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 10.9 K/9), but you might want to adjust your expectations slightly until he proves his health. View him with slightly more risk than usual for his start against Washington Monday.
