Sun, 19 Apr 2015 07:58:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not played in the last few days and has only received seven at-bats in 2015. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option to use.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 07:52:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not seen many at-bats early this season and is still looking for his first hit. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use in their lineup.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 07:43:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has played in every game so far this season and is likely receiving a day off. Kirk Nieuwenhuis ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will receive a start but is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore since he has gone hitless in eight at bats.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 07:29:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has played pretty well since taking over at third base. He has posted one RBI in each of his last three games and is coming off a 2-for-3 performance in his last game. Campbell could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.
Sun, 19 Apr 2015 05:39:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: There was no indication Cuddyer's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) day off is injury related or who will play left field Sunday. Make sure to remove Cuddyer from your fantasy lineups.

Fantasy Tip: If Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is traded or pitches poorly in his next few outings, P Rafael Montero is considered the heavy favorite to move into the starting rotation to replace him. Gee is 0-1 with a 7.59 ERA through two starts this season.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:07:22 -0700
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.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:32:39 -0700
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.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:21:53 -0700
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.

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.
Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:09:52 -0700
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.
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.
Thu, 16 Apr 2015 18:01:49 -0700
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.
Thu, 16 Apr 2015 12:51:22 -0700
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.
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.
