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.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said SS Ruben Tejada (quadriceps) won't automatically be given his job at shortstop back when he returns. INF Omar Quintanilla will have the chance to prove he deserves a starting job in the meantime. Quintanilla will be the regular shortstop with Tejada out, but 2B Justin Turner may get an occasional nod if the team faces a tough lefty. Tejada received a cortisone injection Thursday, May 30, and doesn't know how much time he'll miss. Tejada missed seven weeks last year with a right quad strain.
Fantasy Tip: For now, Quintanilla should only be considered in very deep mixed leagues or NL-only leagues. If he performs well and takes the job, he'll warrant additional attention as middle infield depth.

The New York Mets could use INF Omar Quintanilla and 2B Justin Turner in a platoon at shortstop with SS Ruben Tejada (quadriceps) on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Quintanilla was hitting .413 with a home run, 10 RBIs and 10 walks in May with Triple-A Las Vegas in the Pacific Coast League, a hitter-friendly environment. He'll only be an asset in deep NL leagues, especially if Turner cuts into his time.

New York Mets OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis (knee) could make the opening day roster over INF Omar Quintanilla. Nieuwenhuis returned over the weekend and is only 2-for-26 (.077) this spring. 2Bs Jordany Valdespin or Justin Turner would be counted on to play shortstop if anything were to happen to SS Ruben Tejada if Nieuwenhuis makes the roster over Valdespin.

The New York Mets are expected to shop 2B Justin Turner, according to a source close to the team's plans. Turner could also open the season with Triple-A Las Vegas if he isn't dealt since he has an option remaining. The Mets may want to get INFs Brandon Hicks and Omar Quintanilla on the roster as infielders. INF Zach Lutz could also sneak onto the roster if Turner is dealt. RP Jeremy Hefner appears to be too valuable to risk on waivers, so he looks to be a lock for the 40-man roster.
