Mets | Rick Ankiel joining team

The New York Mets will sign free-agent OF Rick Ankiel (Astros), and he'll join the team Monday, May 13, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets have been lacking an outfielder with true pop, other than the inconsistent Lucas Duda. Ankiel will give them that, but he'll also strike out plenty and ruin your team's batting average. It's unclear how much he'll play, but he figures to bump Mike Baxter and Juan Lagares out of playing time. Ankiel is an option if you're desperate for some home runs and can live with an abysmal BA.
