Mets | Juan Lagares resting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:19:56 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares isn't in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the San Francisco Giants. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis will start in center field and hit seventh in the order against RHP Matt Cain.

Fantasy Tip: Nieuwenhuis ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has doubled for each of his last two hits, but he's just 3-for-21 dating back to his time with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. FantasyScore owners should opt for a safer choice.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer resting

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 16:16:33 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) is healthy enough to play Tuesday, July 7, against the San Francisco Giants, according to manager Terry Collins, but he won't start. OF John Mayberry Jr. will start in left field and hit sixth in the order against RHP Matt Cain.

Fantasy Tip: Mayberry Jr. ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting just .163 against righties this season, and he shouldn't be taken under FantasyScore consideration.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud still in brace

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 16:13:44 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) remains in an elbow brace for his sprain.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud has no timetable for a return and probably won't be back until later this month, at the earliest. Kevin Plawecki ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) and Johnny Monell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will continue to share the catching duties in the meantime. Neither backstop is anything more than a low-end sleeper play that gives you salary cap relief on FantasyScore.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia activated

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:48:43 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia has been activated from an 80-game suspension for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The Mets demoted RP Logan Verrett to clear a roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia had been the Mets' closer before he was suspended, but he'll face the tough task of climbing over Bobby Parnell and Jeurys Familia on the depth chart. Owners shouldn't be too concerned with Mejia at this point, but he will become a consideration for save opportunities if Familia starts struggling.

Mets | Jon Niese ends winless drought

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 22:34:56 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese worked eight scoreless innings Monday, July 6, against the San Francisco Giants to pick up his first victory in nearly two months.

Fantasy Tip: Niese ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) had been a train wreck until this gem, so very few FantasyScore players likely benefited from this outing. If he cobbles together another quality start next time out it will be safe to trust him again.

Mets | Aramis Ramirez an option for Mets?

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 19:36:17 -0700

The New York Mets might want to take a look at Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez, who is hitting .383 with three home runs and a 1.115 OPS over his past 53 plate appearances. The team is unlikely to get 3B David Wright (spine) back as a significant contributor, if at all, and the Brewers likely would part ways with Ramirez for a price favorable to the Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($4,500; or 9.0% of cap) has struggled against left-handed pitching, but he is 4-for-11 (.364) with a double and RBI at Citi Field this season, and .344 hitter at Citi Field since the start of the 2012 season.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia set to rejoin team

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:30:20 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia is set to regain the team during their series against the San Francisco Giants as his 80-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs is coming to an end. He made his final rehab outing for Class AAA Las Vegas Sunday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: With Jeurys Familia performing very well in the closer's role in the first half of the season, it seems highly unlikely that Mejia will have a shot at recording any saves, at least in the foreseeable future. He'll also likely be behind Bobby Parnell in the pecking order, so Mejia doesn't have much fantasy value at all.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki resting Monday

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:19:30 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6. C Johnny Monell is starting and hitting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston.

Fantasy Tip: Monell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has only six hits in 33 at-bats (.182) this year. Avoid him on FantasyScore tonight.

Mets | Lucas Duda out Monday

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:01:17 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6. OF Michael Cuddyer is starting at first base and hitting fifth against San Francisco Giants SP Chris Heston. Also, OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is starting in left field and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should be avoided everywhere while in the midst of a bad slump at the plate. Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has only two hits in his last 36 at-bats (.056) and isn't a strong FantasyScore value play. Avoid Nieuwenhuis ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) everywhere.

Mets | Several NY hitters struggled against Giants

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 11:06:14 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (9-for-52), SS Ruben Tejada (1-for-27) and C Travis d'Arnaud (3-for-24) have struggled in the last 13 meetings with the San Francisco Giants. The Mets face the Giants in a series starting Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has just nine hits in his last 65 at-bats (.138) since June 17 with one home run and five RBI. Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has seven hits in his last 46 at-bats (.152) even after recording three hits last night. Against Giants starter Chris Heston, who no hit the Mets the last time he faced them, neither Duda nor Tejada are intriguing FantasyScore plays Monday.

Mets | Steven Matz impresses again

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 20:55:42 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz allowed two hits and struck out eight over six scoreless innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: Matz ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has won his first two major league starts, allowing just two runs and striking out 14 in 13 2/3 innings. Tale advantage of his fast start at FantasyScore before the league has time to study and adjust.

Mets | Career night for Wilmer Flores

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 20:50:22 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores had a career-high four hits and drove in three runs in an 8-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) went 10-for-13 with five RBI in the three-game series, and he could make a nice source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer playing Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:36:04 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer (knee) is in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger Sunday, July 5, batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is making his first start since Tuesday, June 30, although he made appearances as a pinch hitter in each of the last two games. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him today so that he can prove that he is completely healthy.

Mets | Johnny Monell catching Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:29:24 -0700

New York Mets C Johnny Monell is starting against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger Sunday, July 5, batting seventh. C Kevin Plawecki is receiving a scheduled day off.

Fantasy Tip: Monell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has just five hits in 30 at-bats this season and is not a viable FantasyScore option.

Mets | Noah Syndergaard has another solid outing

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:12:52 -0700

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard struck out six batters while allowing a single run on two hits and two walks over six innings during the Mets' 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Dogers Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Over his past four stars, Syndergaard ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has a 2.25 ERA with 25 strikeouts over 24 innings while limiting hitters to a .174/.226/.279 slash line. His only hiccup has been his start against the San Diego Padres Tuesday, June 2. He should be owned in all seasonal leagues, and Syndergaard's reasonable FantasyScore salary makes him a solid target as your No. 2 starting pitcher.
