New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) could still land on the disabled list if he sits out beyond three days, according to manager Terry Collins. Cuddyer missed his second straight game Thursday, July 2, after receiving an injection and undergoing an MRI exam.
Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) hit .211 (19-for-90) with a home run and six RBI in June to drop his average to .243 on the season. You can drop him in shallow leagues now if you were hanging on. John Mayberry Jr., Darrell Ceciliani and Eric Campbell can all fill in in left field if Cuddyer lands on the DL, but none of those options have much fantasy appeal in traditional or daily games.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has two hits in his last 31 at-bats (.065) since June 23. Avoid him on FantasyScore for the foreseeable future until he gets going again at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Monell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is seldom used and doesn't deserve your attention on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Ceciliani ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is an ugly option for FantasyScore lineups, even while hitting second in the batting order. The matchup against Arrieta is a tough one, and Ceciliani is sporting a .237 average (14-for-59) with one home run and just three RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Campbell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has struggled and isn't worth using on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets really don't have much of a need for Ramirez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) now that 3B Daniel Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has returned from the disabled list. Ramirez should be avoided in FantasyScore and could wind up losing playing time to Hernan Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) if his struggles continue.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:30:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: There's no guarantee that Wright ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) will progress to baseball activities, but the team is optimistic. There remains no timetable on his return and given his injury history and slow-healing ways, expect him back later than sooner. Ruben Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) continues to benefit from an everyday role with the Mets' infield shuffling around Wright's injury, but he's strictly a fantasy option for those in deeper mixed and NL leagues.

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) is not considered a candidate to be placed on the disabled list, according to manager Terry Collins. He is considered day-to-day after receiving an injection Wednesday, July 1.
Fantasy Tip: John Mayberry Jr. ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) draws into the lineup against lefty Jon Lester Wednesday. FantasyScore players should view Mayberry as a desperation source of cap relief. Continue to check back for updates on Cuddyer who is only a seasonal option in deep mixed formats.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer was injured in the game Tuesday, but the severity will not be determined until his test. Avoid him in FantasyScore in the next couple of days just to be on the safe side.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 18:09:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Cuddyer out, Darrell Cecillani ($1,600; or 3.2% of cap) took over in the outfield. Perhaps he gets a start and is a low-end FantasyScore salary saver in the next day or two. We'll update Cuddyer's status when more details are available.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) can be streaky but still is only a couple years removed from clubbing 40-plus homers in consecutive singles, and he's been helped by a shorter porch in right field at Citi Field this year. He could be another profitable play on FantasyScore tonight against the struggling Kyle Hendricks of the Chicago Cubs.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:32:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Daniel Murphy (quadriceps) back from the DL, Flores ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is expected to become the permanent second baseman, at least until David Wright (back) returns. Ruben Tejada will move to shortstop. Flores has surprising power for a middle infielder (10 home runs), but he's only hitting .238 (61-for-256) on the season and is typically a dice roll on FantasyScore for his power abilities.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 10:59:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and the Mets are facing Chicago Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks tonight. Hendricks has struggled of late, and Murphy is hitting .302 (48-for-159) with all four of his home runs against right-handers this year. Consider Murphy as a sleeper for a value play tonight.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has improved his average from .235 to .264 during the streak, logging five homers, seven RBI and six runs scored. The hot streak won't last forever for the streaky Granderson, but he makes a great lower-priced option at FantasyScore in the meantime.

New York Mets SP Steven Matz won in his major league debut, allowing two runs on five hits and striking out six in 7 2/3 innings against the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, June 28. He also went 3-for-3 with four RBI, becoming the only major league pitcher to record four RBI in their debut.
Fantasy Tip: Matz certainly didn't disappoint, and the highly-touted prospect looks like a worthwhile add in just about every format following his impressive debut.
