Mets | Eric Young to play often

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said OF Eric Young Jr. will play "quite often," because he gives the team a leadoff option and a threat to steal bases.

Fantasy Tip: Young was always an intriguing option for stolen bases in deep mixed leagues and NL-only formats while in Colorado, but lack of consistent playing time hurt him. Now that he'll see everyday at-bats with the Metropolitans, he becomes much more worthy of rostering in those same formats for his speed.
