Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka records first save

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 14:34:37 -0700

New York Mets RP Daisuke Matsuzaka had a perfect inning to pick up his first career save against the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, April 24. Manager Terry Collins said RP Kyle Farnsworth was fine to pitch, but he had appeared in three of the last four days and his velocity was down noticeably during his save Wednesday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Dice-K is now a realistic option for save chances behind Farnsworth. Farnsie's drop in velocity may be a concern, since he was favoring his right arm earlier this week, too. While Matsuzaka isn't in the ninth-inning role yet, he figures to see occasional save chances in order to keep Farnsworth fresh.

Mets | Kyle Farnsworth still the closer

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:32:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets manager Terry Collins said RP Kyle Farnsworth is the team's primary closer on days that he's available to pitch.

Fantasy Tip: After Daisuke Matsuzaka recorded the save Thursday, it now appears that he's the primary backup option to Farnsworth, should he struggle or get injured. Pick up Matsuzaka if you're in need of saves.

Mets | Kyle Farnsworth being assessed

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:15:54 -0700

New York Mets RP Kyle Farnsworth will continue to close games for the team while manager Terry Collins assesses him and internal options such as RP Daisuke Matsuzaka. Matsuzaka faced just a single hitter in his outing Wednesday, April 24. "I wouldn't say I've enjoyed my time out of the bullpen," Matsuzaka said. "I'm still trying to figure things out by seeing how the game progresses and seeing where I might be called upon. I just have too much on my plate right now to enjoy the process right now."

Fantasy Tip: Dice-K notched the save Thursday afternoon. Farnsie had worked in three of the last four days, however, so the Mets may have wanted to give him a break. Regardless, Matsuzaka is now in the saves picture in Flushing. Grab him immediately if you're chasing saves. It could become a closer-by-committee or Matsuzaka could usurp Farnsworth eventually.

Mets | To keep Bobby Abreu fresh

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:11:00 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins plans to give OF Bobby Abreu around one outfield start per week to keep his bat fresh. Abreu started in the outfield for the first time in two years Thursday, April 24, to give OF Curtis Granderson a rest. Abreu hit .395 with a 1.086 OPS in 15 games with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu is strictly an NL-only commodity because his playing time will be sparse.

Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka a closing option?

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:29:30 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said SP Daisuke Matsuzaka is an option to close out games. RP Jose Valverde held the closing job for less than three weeks, and now RP Kyle Farnsworth is in the ninth-inning role. Matsuzaka has made just two relief appearances for the team, allowing a run on two hits in four innings, with two walks and six strikeouts. One problem with Matsuzaka pitching at the back of the bullpen is that he has value as a long-relief man and a backup for the starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Dice-K isn't a realistic option just yet, and it would take a meltdown or injury from Farnsworth for this to become serious. For now, he's a speculative target for those truly desperate for potential save opps.

Mets | Curtis Granderson in bad slump

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 06:23:25 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson is hitless in his last 22 at-bats and has just four hits in his last 50 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: The home fans are beginning to boo him. Granderson needs to be benched in mixed leagues until he finds his swing.

Mets | Could move Lucas Duda to cleanup

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:17:50 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he is considering moving 1B Lucas Duda to the cleanup spot in the batting order. "We've put a lot on Lucas' plate in the past week," Collins said about the reluctance to use Duda as a cleanup hitter now. "I don't want to pile on."

Mets | Kyle Farnsworth's health fine

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 09:13:35 -0700

New York Mets RP Kyle Farnsworth was hunched over and shaking his forearm after the game Monday, April 21, but the team said their new closer is "fine." Farnsworth acknowledged flexing forearm after his save Monday, but he said it's just a sign of being "old." He might not be available to close Tuesday, April 22, because he's been warmed up frequently recently.

Fantasy Tip: That's not what you want to hear from a 38-year-old reliever that was just put into the closing role. Don't lose sight of Jose Valverde or Jeurys Familia, who could see save opportunities if Farnsworth breaks down health-wise.

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 19:52:54 -0700

Mets | Jenrry Mejia working on scoreless streak

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 19:52:17 -0700

New York Mets SP Jenrry Mejia allowed four hits and three walks with seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a win against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, April 21. He extended his career-high scoreless streak to 13 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia, who has 25 strikeouts through 22 2/3 innings, has long had potential, but injuries have held him back a bit. He is now healthy and showing what he can do, and that's quite a bit. Fantasy owners in all formats can use a pitcher of his caliber.

Mets | Kyle Farnsworth gets job done

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 19:51:17 -0700

New York Mets RP Kyle Farnsworth converted his first save Monday, April 21, against the St. Louis Cardinals. He worked around a single in a scoreless ninth inning. It was his first save since Sept. 29, 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Farnsworth doesn't have a lot of tread left on the tires, but stranger things have happened. Look how Jason Grilli re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option last season despite being a little long in the tooth. Farnsworth is worth scooping up in all NL-only fantasy formats and deeper mixed rotisserie leagues if you need saves.

Mets | Bobby Abreu called up, Andrew Brown optioned

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 11:41:19 -0700

The New York Mets recalled OF Bobby Abreu from Triple-A Las Vegas Monday, April 21, and optioned OF Andrew Brown in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Abreu gives the Mets a left-handed stick off the bench and in pinch-hit situations. He's not worth pursuing.
