Mets | Bartolo Colon continues solid start

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:07:22 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon improved to 3-0 on the year with a win over the Miami Marlins Friday, April 17, lowering his ERA to 2.25.

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.

Mets | Eric Campbell will be primary third baseman

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:32:39 -0700

New York Mets 3B/1B Eric Campbell will be the primary third baseman while 3B David Wright (hamstring) is out. INF Danny Muno will also receive a few starts at the hot corner.

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.

Mets | Dillon Gee on a short leash

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:21:53 -0700

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee is on a short leash, according to manager Terry Collins.

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.

Mets | Rafael Montero set to start April 28

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:14:48 -0700

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.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud sitting vs. Fish

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:09:52 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Friday, April 17. C Anthony Recker is starting behind the plate and batting eighth Friday.

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.

Mets | Bobby Parnell throws rehab inning

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:36:57 -0700

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.

Mets | Lucas Duda has sixth multi-hit game

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 18:01:49 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda picked up his sixth multi-hit game of the season Thursday, April 16, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) now has three multi-hit games in a row and is becoming a must start on FantasyScore until he cools off. Duda is a more favorable option against right-handed pitchers, but he has gotten off to a great start against lefties this season, with three hits in his first eight appearances.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud back in No. 2 spot

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 12:51:22 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is back in the No. 2 spot in the lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jared Cosart Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud's ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) fantasy value will temporarily receive a boost with David Wright (hamstring) on the disabled list. In the No. 2 spot last night, d'Arnaud immediately responded by going 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs and an RBI. He'll be another strong FantasyScore option tonight against Cosart.

Mets | Dillon Gee looks to squish Fish

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:34:20 -0700

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee will take the bump Thursday, April 16, against the Miami Marlins in the first of a four-game series. He is 3-1 with a 2.84 ERA in six starts against the Marlins, and he has not allowed a home run against Miami since Aug. 29, 2011.

Fantasy Tip: Gee could be a solid value play in FantasyScore at just $3,900 (or 7.8% of cap) based on his history against Miami. OF Giancarlo Stanton ($6,100; 12.2% of cap) is just 1-for-9 (.111) with a home run in his career against Gee.

Mets | Jon Niese sharp against Philly

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:33:45 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese allowed one earned run while scattering nine hits over 6 ⅓ innings Wednesday, April 15, against the Philadelphia Phillies in a win. He also had two walks and four strikeouts in the 94-pitch quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Niese is 4-0 with a 1.87 ERA over his past six outings against the Phillies. Scribble that down in your DFS notebooks and remember Niese next time the Mets square off with the Phillies May 8-10.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer plays full game

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:30:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (hand) was back in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15, against the Philadelphia Phillies. He went 1-for-4 with a double and run scored.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Cuddyer played a full game without any setbacks. FantasyScore owners can feel free to plug him back in at $2,600 (or 5.2% of cap). There arenít too many cleanup hitters out there with that low of a price tag, so there is some value.

Mets | David Wright likely out three weeks

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 14:09:56 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) could return in two weeks, however, three weeks is a more realistic timeline, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Stash Wright in all formats and check back for updates on his recovery and for an official announcement on when he'll return. In his absence, Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has fleeting value in NL-only formats and is a potential low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests when facing a favorable pitching matchup. Still, expectations should be kept in check with Campbell, as he returned a .263/.322/.358 slash line over 190 at-bats last season.

Mets | Jeurys Familia unavailable vs. Phillies

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:27:05 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (rest) is unavailable to pitch against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, April 15, because he has pitched in three straight games.

Fantasy Tip: With Familia taking the night off, Jerry Blevins and Carlos Torres are the most likely options to close out the game in a save situation. Blevins and Torres should be viewed as desperation adds for the save speculators in cavernous mixed league and NL-only formats.

Mets | Eric Campbell starting at 3B

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:21:20 -0700

New York Mets 3B Eric Campbell is starting at third base in place of 3B David Wright (hamstring) Wednesday, April 15. Campbell is hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) was recalled from the minors to take Wright's roster spot after he was placed on the DL today. Campbell hit very well in spring training and will be a sleeper option at FantasyScore, especially tonight against Phillies starter Jerome Williams.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer back in lineup

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:18:35 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (hand) is back in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15, and he's facing Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerome Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) suffered a bruised left hand after being hit by a pitch Tuesday night. It appears he's just fine, so you shouldn't have any pause using him at FantasyScore tonight against Williams.
