Mets | Michael Conforto starting vs. Phillies

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:34:56 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto is starting in left field and batting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Conforto ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has a respectable .271/.366/.500 slash line with 20 runs, three home runs and 12 RBI over his first 24 games with the Mets. He draws a plus-matchup against Harang ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) Thursday, and the outfielder is worth a look at FantasyScore.

Mets | Wilmer Flores out of the lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:30:39 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at second base and batting fifth, and SS Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been swinging a hot bat, and he is worth a look in deep mixed leagues, especially if middle infield is an area of need. Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is a nice FantasyScore play Wednesday, as the Mets lineup is piling on the offense of late. Tejada ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is more of a dice roll, though, and he shouldn't be confused as a lineup priority.

Mets | David Wright hitting cleanup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:18:43 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is starting at third base and batting fourth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Michael Cuddyer draws out of the lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Hitting in the heart of a scorching hot lineup, Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a high-end play at FantasyScore Thursday, especially at his current salary. Wright is going to receive some games off, but he still warrants ownership in the majority of seasonal leagues. Similarly, Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) isn't going to be a daily fixture in the lineup, which is a hit to his value.

Phillies | Aaron Altherr hitting fifth vs. Mets

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:23:01 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Aaron Altherr is starting in left field and batting fifth against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Cody Asche is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Altherr ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has flashed some pop with two home runs and a .667 slugging percentage through his first 21 plate appearances. He is a viable flier at FantasyScore Thursday. Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has been trending in the right direction with a .276/.364/.483 slash line in August, but he is still nothing more than a low-end option in all fantasy formats.

Mets | Steven Matz has solid rehab outing

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:35:31 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz (lat) allowed one hit over six scoreless innings in a rehab start for Class AA Binghamton Wednesday, Aug. 26, with no walks and six strikeouts. He threw 41 of his 56 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Matz ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) will receive at least one more rehab start before being activated from the disabled list. At that point, he'll rejoin a six-man rotation, which will negatively impact the fantasy value of the team's other starters. He should be owned in most formats, although FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first start back.

Mets | Bartolo Colon earns victory Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:26:19 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (11-11) allowed five hits over seven scoreless innings in a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, Aug. 26, with two walks and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) had dropped seven of his previous eight decisions entering Wednesday's contest. He is expected to make his next start against the Phillies at Citi Field Monday, Aug. 31.

Mets | David Wright to play next three games

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:08:41 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is expected to play the next three games after having a day off Wednesday, Aug. 26, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets are being cautious with Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) after he returned from a lengthy stint on the DL this past Monday. After hitting a solo homer in his first game back, he was hitless in four at-bats Tuesday, and he has four strikeouts in nine at-bats. Expect ups and downs from him the rest of the way.

Mets | Steven Matz needs more starts

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:02:27 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz (lat) will make his third rehab start Wednesday, Aug. 26, pitching for Class AA Binghamton. He'll only throw 60 pitches, though, meaning he'll likely need at least one more minor league start before coming off the disabled list. The Mets also want to see better pitch location from Matz before he comes back up.

Fantasy Tip: When Matz ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) rejoins the Mets' rotation, they'll go with a six-man rotation, meaning the other starters' fantasy value will take a slight hit for the final month of regular season play. Matz should remain owned in most formats, and his handful of starts to finish out the year could be helpful. Be careful using him on FantasyScore when he immediately returns from the DL, though.

Mets | Jacob deGrom had food poisoning Monday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:13:58 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom (illness) had food poisoning Monday, Aug. 24. He is feeling better Wednesday, Aug. 26, after he received an IV Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom's ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) out-of-nowhere dud against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday night makes a little more sense knowing he was potentially pitching at less than 100%. Continue to view deGrom as a high-end pitcher in all fantasy formats, especially now that the New York offense is supplying all kinds of run support.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis enjoys facing the Mets

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:07:15 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is batting .375 with five RBI over his past six games, and he is hitting .357 against the New York Mets this season. Mets SP Bartolo Colon is starting against Philadelphia Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Galvis ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has settled into the two-hole of the order, and he is 3-for-6 against Colon ($5,500, 11.5% of cap) this season. The shortstop has a few things going for him Tuesday, but he shouldn't be confused as a lineup building block at FantasyScore.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud not in lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:46:22 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Anthony Recker is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff.

Fantasy Tip: Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap), who's hitting .138 (9-for-65) with two home runs, remains a desperation deep sleeper selection on FantasyScore despite facing a rookie making only his second major league start tonight.

Mets | David Wright taking a breather

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:37:00 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is not in the starting lineup, as expected, Wednesday, Aug. 26. 2B Daniel Murphy moves back to second base, and 3B Juan Uribe is starting at third base and is hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff.

Fantasy Tip: Stacking Mets hitters against Eickhoff, who is making his second major league start, isn't a bad idea. Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has more upside for the price. Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) still has power in his old age, but he's hitting .239 (57-for-238) against right-handers this season.

Mets | Yoenis Cespedes homers again

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 22:50:27 -0700

New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (foot) had a two-run home run in five at-bats Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Cespedes is hitting .306 with seven home runs and 20 RBIs since the Mets acquired him July 31 from the Detroit Tigers. Cespedes fouled a ball off his foot in the seventh inning, but was able to remain in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is a tremendous source of power at a mid-level price for FantasyScore players. Keep rolling with him, especially for the rest of the series in Philadelphia, which has a hitter-friendly park.

Mets | Noah Syndergaard finally wins on road

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 22:50:02 -0700

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard allowed four runs - two earned - and four hits with two walks and nine strikeouts over five innings in a win Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Syndergaard entered 0-5 with a 5.05 ERA in nine starts on the road.

Fantasy Tip: If Syndergaard ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) can start performing on the road like he has at home, look out. He is 8-1 with a 1.82 ERA at home. FantasyScore players need to remember the latter.

Mets | David Wright to sit Wednesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:11:34 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is expected to sit out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26, after being in the lineup for the second straight day Tuesday, Aug. 25, following his activation from the disabled list. Manager Terry Collins said there is a "good chance" Wright will sit out Wednesday. Wright was 2-for-5 with a solo home run and three runs scored in his first game back Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Wright's ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) impressive performance in his first game back should make you very optimistic that he can finish the final month strong. He definitely needs to be owned in all formats, and if he can keep this up, he'll be a strong third base option on FantasyScore.
