Fantasy Tip: Nimmo is hitting .270 with two home runs and 18 RBI in the minors this season and could receive another promotion later in the season. Owners on deeper and NL-only leagues could keep an eye out his progress since he could be an option down the road.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia was supposed to begin the season as the Mets closer, but he ended up playing in just seven games after making his return from the first suspension July 12. Mejia won't begin the 2016 season with any fantasy value, and he'll need to have a spot to return to in order to be an option later on in the year.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is receiving his first start since joining the Mets and could see more time moving forward. He is hitting .263 with three home runs and eight RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy will start at second base against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Tuesday, July 28, and is batting second in the lineup. 2B Kelly Johnson is not in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could see more time at second base with the team acquiring Juan Uribe. He has at least one hit in eight of his last nine hits with five RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using him because of his production.

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) took ground balls Tuesday, July 28, and will continue to do more baseball activities on back-to-back days. He might take some batting practice Wednesday, July 29, but no date has been set for him to play in rehab games.
Fantasy Tip: With no return date in sight for Wright ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) his owners have to seriously wonder if he'll make much of an impact at all for the rest of this season. If you don't have the room to stash him in a shallow league, we wouldn't blame you for dropping him.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:04:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was rumored to be flipped in another deal before the deadline, but the Mets haven't seen enough from Reyes to take on the contract. He should post good numbers in Colorado if he stays.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:01:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) may have too big a contract for the Mets to handle, but Gonzalez's fantasy value depends on where he eventually lands.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard was acquired from the Oakland Athletics Monday, but he is not expected to close in Queens like he was previously doing in Oakland. His fantasy value in standard leagues takes a hit as a result, although he is a solid addition in NL-only rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories. He can also be a boon to fantasy owners in leagues which offer holds as a category.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:05:49 -0700
Fantasy Tip: There remains no timetable for Wright ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) to come off the disabled list, though, and there's no guarantee he'll be very productive whenever he does return to the field. Continue stashing him everywhere, but at this point you shouldn't expect much production for him for the rest of 2015.

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia will remain as the team's closer after the acquisition of RP Tyler Clippard from the Oakland Athletics Monday, July 27, according to a source. Clippard will serve as the setup man.
Fantasy Tip: Despite blowing his first two save chances in the second half, Familia still owns a 1.70 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 27 saves this year, so he's earned plenty of rope in the Mets bullpen. Clippard obviously will lose significant value with this move, but he still has value to his owners in deeper leagues in a setup role, and he could see the occasional save chance, especially if Familia continues to struggle in the second half.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:42:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: A trade to the Mets would likely ensure Parra ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) everyday playing time for the rest of the season. Taking him away from Miller Park could hurt, but Parra has performed even better on the road (.329/.378/.500 with five of his nine home runs) this year. Khris Davis would benefit the most with regular playing time in Milwaukee if Parra or Gomez are dealt.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:22:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how the bullpen roles will be affected by the acquisition of Clippard, who was closing for the A's. Jeurys Familia was lights out in the first half of the season but has blown both of his save chances since the All-Star break, leaving this situation a bit unsettled. Clippard is likely to serve in some sort of setup role, but he could also see save chances, especially if Familia continues his slump. Hold onto Clippard for now in all leagues. If anything, this hurts the chances of Bobby Parnell and Jenrry Mejia securing more prominent roles at the back end.

New York Mets SP Zack Wheeler (elbow) threw on flat ground Monday, July 27, for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery in March. Wheeler said he did not have any pain during the session and that his elbow felt strong. He said he hopes to be back pitching next June or July.
Fantasy Tip: Wheeler has just started his recovery from surgery, so he will not be an option for owners this season. Owners should monitor his progress over the next year because he could be a fantasy option when he returns next season.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 10:13:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Clippard has been closing games for the Athletics and has recorded 17 saves to this point. It is not known what his role would be if he was traded to the Mets, so owners should monitor the situation. Jeurys Familia has performed well as the closer for the Mets but has blown two saves in his last four appearances, which could give Clippard a chance to close if he joins the team.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:15:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been a maddening fantasy baseball commodity because of his inability to stay healthy for his owners. He can be a nice value play in daily games when he returns, and in the meantime, Kevin Plawecki ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) isn't a bad source of value himself.
