Mets | Kelly Johnson out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 13:00:01 -0700

New York Mets 2B Kelly Johnson is not starting Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Philadelphia Phillies. 1B Daniel Murphy is at second base and is hitting third against Phlllies SP Aaron Harang.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is alternating in the lineup every other day as the Mets balance a lineup with more infielders. He is hitting .182 against Harang, which likely accounts for his absence.

Mets | Steven Matz activated

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 11:30:09 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz (lat) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Be careful with the promising young lefty for the rest of the season, especially in his first start back on FantasyScore. Matz's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) return means the Mets are going to a six-man rotation for the final month of the season, which will knock down the fantasy value of the other starters a tad.

Mets | Bad news for Lucas Duda

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:25:16 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is not expected to be ready to return from the disabled list when eligible this weekend, according to the team.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was originally expected to only require the minimum time on the shelf, so this is clearly disappointing news for all. Unless you're desperate for the roster spot, continue to stash the slugger in all seasonal formats. The Mets have been throwing all kinds of lineups together over the past three weeks, so expect things to become even more creative once Duda returns.

Mets | Addison Reed acquired

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:56:03 -0700

The New York Mets acquired RP Addison Reed from the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, Aug. 30, in exchange for RPs Miller Diaz and Matt D. Koch.

Fantasy Tip: Ordinarily relievers would not get any mention here unless they closed, but Reed was a former closer in Arizona at one point. He will not close here, much like RP Tyler Clippard, as RP Jeurys Familia has this role locked down.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer has three hits Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:41:12 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer went 3-for-3 with a walk Sunday, Aug. 30, in a 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox. One of his hits was the game-winning single.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been hitting very well in the three weeks since he came off the disabled list. He is .471-2-6 in the past seven days and makes for a solid FantasyScore addition at this price.

Mets | Wilmer Flores draws out of the lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:47:37 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. 3B Juan Uribe is playing third base and batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been a touch inconsistent game to game, but he sports a .364/.378/.659 slash line with 11 runs and 10 RBI over his past 10 games. Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) draws in with a respectable .879 OPS against lefties this season, but he still shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a dice roll at FantasyScore Sunday.

Mets | Kelly Johnson playing second base

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:06:29 -0700

New York Mets INF Kelly Johnson will bat fifth and play second base against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Saturday, Aug. 29. INF Wilmer Flores, who started at second base Friday, Aug. 28, will play shortstop Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is only hitting .219 with three home runs and six RBIs in 73 at-bats since joining the club, so he isn't a recommended option in FantasyScore this afternoon. On the other hand, Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is batting .393 with two homers and seven RBIs over the past week and should be considered for daily lineups.

Mets | Daniel Murphy playing first base

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:05:15 -0700

New York Mets INF Daniel Murphy will bat third and play first base against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Saturday, Aug. 29. OF/1B Michael Cuddyer is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting .346 with a home run and seven RBIs over the past seven days and is 2-for-3 in his career versus Kelly, making him a solid value play in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Mets | David Wright not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:02:25 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Saturday, Aug. 29. INF Juan Uribe will play the hot corner and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is 6-for-20 since coming off the disabled list but the Mets will try to make sure he gets an adequate amount of rest down the stretch. Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting just .157 during the month of August and should be avoided in FantasyScore unless you really need the cap space.

Mets | Michael Conforto playing left field

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:02:23 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto will bat seventh and play left field against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Saturday, Aug. 29. OF Curtis Granderson, who played left field Friday, Aug. 28, will start in center field, with OF Juan Lagares getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is batting .421 (8-for-19) with four doubles and two RBIs over the past week and is a solid value option in FantasyScore.

Mets | David Wright solid in first home game

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 00:28:26 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright was 2-for-5 in his first home game at Citi Field Friday, Aug. 28, against the Boston Red Sox. Wright had not played at Citi since April, when back problems sidelined him.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been decent in his return to the lineup, so the time might be right to lift off the reins and put Wright in your FantasyScore roster.

Mets | Lucas Duda not swinging yet

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:52:15 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) has not been able to start swinging a bat at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is still a few weeks away from returning to the lineup, so owners should monitor his recovery. Michael Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) could see most of the playing time at first base and could be a starting option against certain opponents.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer starting at first base

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:39:16 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer is starting at first base and batting fifth against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Friday, Aug. 28. 2B Kelly Johnson draws out of the lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) appears to be over the nagging knee injury for the time being, but he still isn't receiving everyday playing time. Still, he is currently raking with a .350/.381/.600 slash line since returning from the disabled list and is worth targeting at FantasyScore Friday. Johnson's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) role could dwindle if he doesn't heat up at the plate. He has just six RBI and a .222/.273/.403 slash line over 22 games since joining the Mets. He is nothing more than a cavernous mixed and NL-only option is seasonal formats.

Mets | Juan Lagares starting vs. Boston

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:33:22 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting first against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Friday, Aug. 28. OF Michael Conforto is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has only received 45 plate appearances in August, but he has made the most of them with nine runs, 11 RBI and a 1.014 OPS. Like most hitters for the red-hot Mets, he is worth considering at FantasyScore Friday. Conforto ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) remains worth owning in deeper mixed leagues, but he is unlikely to see anything more than semi-regular playing time down the stretch, so owners will want to keep that in mind.

Mets | Four-hit night for Curtis Granderson

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 21:23:48 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson went 4-for-6 with a double, two runs scored and a walk in a 9-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has hit safely in seven of his last eight games, and he has scored 12 runs during the same stretch. Throw in his power upside, and Granderson makes a solid play at FantasyScore at his current price.
