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.

Mets | NYM pushing hard for Yoenis Cespedes

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:27:41 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes is coveted by the New York Mets, and the Mets are making a large push to acquire Cespedes before the trade deadline Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) appears to be becoming a bat for hire over the past year, and while his fantasy stock wouldn't be drastically hurt by a move to the Tigers, it wouldn't help, either. Continue to check back for updates and don't make any hasty decisions until there are official announcements.

Mets | NY discussing Yoenis Cespedes

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 10:08:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers OF Yoenis Cespedes is being discussed by the New York Mets, according to source.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets are desperately trying to acquire another outfield bat to help their struggling offense, and Cespedes ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) would certainly fit the bill. While he'd be leaving a hitter-friendly park for a more pitcher-friendly venue, a trade to Citi Field won't drastically downgrade his fantasy value.

Mets | Jay Bruce not headed to Mets?

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:48:22 -0700

The New York Mets and Cincinnati Reds may have hit a snag in their discussions on sending OF Jay Bruce to the Mets, according to sources. The Reds are having second thoughts about what the Mets are offering.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets' attempt at a trade for another high-profile outfielder fell apart the other day, too, when they balked at acquiring Carlos Gomez. Could it happen again? Stay tuned as the trade deadline nears. Bruce's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) fantasy value figures to take at least a slight hit if he moves to a pitcher-friendly environment at Citi Field.

Mets | NY closer to getting Jay Bruce

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:57:36 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is closer to being traded to the New York Mets in exchange for SP Zack Wheeler Friday, July 31. The two teams are reviewing medical information. Bruce is hitting .257 with 17 home runs and 59 RBI in 350 at-bats and will make $12.5 million next year with a team option for $13 million for 2017.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets could surely use a power boost that Bruce ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) would give them. Bruce's fantasy value might take a small hit moving to a more pitcher-friendly environment in Citi Field, although his power can play anywhere.

Mets | Jeurys Familia blows save

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 18:37:49 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia blew his fifth save of the season, allowing three runs on three hits in an 8-7 loss to the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Familia may deserve a bit of a pass for this one. He recorded the first two outs of the inning, but he was then forced to sit for 44 minutes because of a rain delay, and he was lit up when play resumed. Still, he has now blown three straight save chances, and the recently acquired Tyler Clippard could start to steal away some saves opportunities any day now.

Mets | Jay Bruce an option for Mets?

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:14:36 -0700

The Cincinnati Reds are willing to trade OF Jay Bruce to the New York Mets for SP Zack Wheeler now.

Fantasy Tip: A move away from the hitter-friendly environment of Great American Ballpark to the more pitching-friendly venue of Citi Field would cause Bruce's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) to drop a little bit. However, he has power that plays anywhere, so it probably wouldn't be a drastic shift.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud activated

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:06:09 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was hitting .296 through just 77 plate appearances this season. d'Arnaud has shown flashes this season, but he has once again had tremendous difficulty staying in the lineup. He can be used by FantasyScore owners for as long as he's healthy.

Mets | Jeurys Familia remains closer

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 15:47:32 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia will remain in the closer role, per manager Terry Collins Thursday, July 30. Familia has blown all three of his save attempts since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Familia's ERA remains at just 1.70, and he does have 27 saves for the season. It's a rough patch for a guy who had previously been nearly untouchable, but his leash can't be much longer with Tyler Clippard now nipping at his heals.

Mets | NY to be cautious with Travis d'Arnaud

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:44:38 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) will return from the disabled list Friday, July 31, but manager Terry Collins said the team will be cautious with him upon his return. "He won't be a four (games) in a row guy," Collins said of d'Arnaud. "He might play two and a day off. It'll all depend on how he feels." C Kevin Plawecki is likely to remain on the major league roster with C Anthony Recker being sent down. d'Arnaud hasn't played since June 20 and was hitting .296 with four home runs and 17 RBI.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been a fine fantasy catching commodity for his bat, but he just hasn't been able to stay healthy enough to be viable for fake owners. Now that he's back, he could be a great addition to a team in need of catching, and he could be a great value play on FantasyScore, too, when he's in the lineup.
