Mets | Curtis Granderson having hot month

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:27:11 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson is hitting .303 with five doubles, seven home runs and 11 RBI in the month of June.

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.

Mets | Wilmer Flores has moved to 2B

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:32:13 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is starting his second straight game at second base against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Tuesday, June 30. Flores is batting sixth.

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.

Mets | Daniel Murphy returning Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 10:59:31 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (quadriceps) will be activated from the disabled list in time for the game Tuesday, June 30.

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.

Mets | Curtis Granderson streaking

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 20:21:39 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson went 5-for-10 combined in a doubleheader against the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, June 28, extending his hitting streak to eight games.

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.

Mets | Incredible debut for Steven Matz

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 20:14:42 -0700

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.

Mets | Daniel Murphy due back Tuesday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 13:36:45 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy (quadriceps) is expected to come off the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will likely slot in at third base until David Wright (back) returns, and he'll be a low-end 2B option on FantasyScore.

Mets | Ruben Tejada has bruised elbow

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 18:48:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B Ruben Tejada (elbow) has a bruise on his left elbow after being hit by a pitch from Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto Friday, June 26. X-rays came back negative.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't appear that Tejada ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will miss much playing time. If he is out of the lineup, 3B Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is the most likely option to play the hot corner, although he won't supply much offense.

Mets | Noah Syndergaard earns win

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 18:39:40 -0700

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard (3-4) allowed one run on five hits over eight innings in a victory over the Cincinnati Reds Friday, June 26. He walked none and struck out five in the longest outing of his major league career.

Fantasy Tip: Syndergaard ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) topped out at 99 mph on the radar gun and picked up his first victory in his last five starts. He is expected to make his next start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, July 3.

Mets | Ruben Tejada hit by pitch

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:10:07 -0700

New York Mets 3B Ruben Tejada (arm) left the game Friday, June 26, after being struck in the left arm by a pitch from Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto. He was replaced in the game by 3B Eric Campbell.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Tejada's ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) injury remains unknown, so check back for further updates on his status. Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) entered play Friday batting .173 in 111 at-bats this season and carries no fantasy value.

Mets | David Wright still without return timetable

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:31:51 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (back) remains in Los Angeles, receiving treatment for the narrowing of the spinal cavity in his lower back. There is no clear timeline for his return, according to general manager Sandy Alderson. "I think he's making progress with his rehab, but he hasn't transitioned to baseball activity," Alderson said Friday, June 26. "I honestly can't tell you on Monday when I talk to him again that he will have transitioned to baseball activity. It's something where we just have to wait and see."

Fantasy Tip: At this point, fantasy owners should be thrilled to receive any significant contribution from Wright this season, as there is a legitimate chance he stumbles upon his return. Plus, there is no indication when he'll return. For the time being, he is worth stashing in all formats, but expectations should be kept in check.

Mets | Strict six-man rotation on tap for Mets

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:37:41 -0700

The New York Mets will impliment a strict six-man pitching rotation for the "foreseeable future," general manager Sandy Alderson said Friday, June 26. Conserving innings is the purpose of the move. "We have to be fairly strict and disciplined about this, because we could get to the end of the season and some of our guys simply won't have any capacity left in our reasonable judgment," Alderson added.

Fantasy Tip: The only area this significantly impacts fantasy players is in weekly leagues, as the Mets' pitchers won't have as many opportunities to have two starts in a single week. Still, it is also in the best interest of fantasy onwers for the young pitching staff to pitch through to the end of the season.

Mets | Noah Syndergaard struggling

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:30:06 -0700

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard is 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA through four June starts after posting a 1.82 mark over his first four outings in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: Syndergaard ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) checks out as a high-risk, high-reward FantasyScore option against the Cincinnati Reds Friday, especially with Johnny Cueto opposing him. Seasonal owners should consider benching Syndergaard until he returns to form, too.

Mets | Steven Matz the real deal

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 09:25:43 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz, who went 7-4 with a 2.19 ERA in 15 games for Class AAA Las Vegas in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League this year, has made big strides with the development of his curveball and changeup, according to scouts. A scout who saw Matz recently said: "He's ready to come up and slot himself with the other young guns."

Fantasy Tip: Matz should have already been owned in dynasty and keeper leagues, and he's worth picking up in all other formats now, even in shallow mixed leagues if you have space. He'll make his big league debut Sunday against the Cincinnati Reds at Citi Field, which makes him more palatable as your second pitcher on FantasyScore.

Mets | Noah Syndergaard has struggled recently

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:56:19 -0700

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard is 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA in his last four starts. He faces the Cincinnati Reds at home Friday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Syndergaard ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) is experiencing some rookie bumps of late, but he has recorded double-digit strikeouts in two of his last four starts to look on the bright side. Until he breaks out of his funk, though, you may want to consider avoiding him on FantasyScore tomorrow.

Mets | Jacob deGrom continues excellent season

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:51:10 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom tossed eight scoreless innings to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, June 25, and improve to 5-1 with a 1.23 ERA in his last eight starts. DeGrom has struck out 63 hitters and walked only six during that stretch. He allowed four hits while striking out seven and walking none against the Brew Crew.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom ($8,000, 17.6% of cap) is one of the stronger starting pitchers you can choose from right now on FantasyScore when he toes the rubber, and matchups like the one today against Milwaukee are juicy. Paying up for him in the right matchups is worth every penny.
