Fantasy Tip: Daily fantasy owners might want to take note, as Campbell can sometimes be used at various positions with certain fantasy providers. He recently had a 10-game hitting streak, and comes on the cheap in salary cap formats.

New York Mets 3B Eric Campbell will return to a pinch-hitting role with the team, now that 3B David Wright is healthy. Campbell filled in admirably, hitting .464 (13-for-28) in Wright's absence. Campbell is expected to start at first base when the Mets face a left-handed pitcher, according to manager Terry Collins.
Fantasy Tip: The Mets host the Braves Monday, July 7, and Campbell gets to face the reeling Mike Minor. He is in play in daily games, when starting, but without consistent playing time, his fantasy value is nixed, beyond NL-only formats.
