Mets | Lucas Duda, Ike Davis sitting
New York Mets OF Lucas Duda and 1B Ike Davis are sitting the bench against a left-handed pitcher Thursday, May 9. Davis is hitting only .167 (8-for-48) with two RBIs and 20 strikeouts in his last 15 games. Manager Terry Collins said Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke's "cross-fire" delivery is very tough on lefties. Davis will return to the lineup against another southpaw Friday, May 10.
Fantasy Tip: Davis continues to struggle, so this was an easy decision. Collins also wanted to get Andrew Brown and Juan Lagares some playing time in the outfield. If you're still riding Davis, it wouldn't be smart to start him against lefties, at least right now. Benching him altogether isn't dumb, either.
