Mets | Justin Turner expected to hit DL

Updating a previous item, New York Mets 2B Justin Turner (intercostal) is expected to land on the disabled list with a strained intercostal muscle on his left side, according to manager Terry Collins. Turner had an MRI exam Monday, June 17, and isn't traveling with the team. The team is expected to recall SP Zack Wheeler and activate RP Scott Atchison (elbow) from the disabled list Tuesday, June 18. Collins said INF Jordany Valdespin will serve as the backup to SS Omar Quintanilla at shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Turner was serving as infield depth for the Mets. He didn't carry much value to begin with aside from NL-only leagues. It's safe to drop him if you were using him as depth in cavernous mixed leagues.
