New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia is unavailable to pitch on Saturday, April 16, after having pitched four of the previous five days, according to manager Terry Collins.
Fantasy Tip: The Mets have Matt Harvey pitching Saturday, so there is a decent chance Familia may not be needed anyway. Should a save chance arise, Jim Henderson is the odds-on favorite to get the call, making him a reasonable play in daily fantasy.

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom (lat) will not need an MRI on the right lat injury that knocked him out of his season debut Friday, April 8, but he is still "very sore", according to manager Terry Collins.
Fantasy Tip: Core muscle injuries tend to linger if they are not allowed to fully heal, so deGrom owners need to be prepared to sit the ace for his next scheduled start at home against the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Logan Verrett appears to be the frontrunner to get a spot start if the 27-year-old Florida native is unable to get cleared in time and would make for a reasonable play in season-long leagues as well as DFS.

New York Mets OF Michael Conforto will not be playing against left-handed pitching for the remainder of the season, according to manager Terry Collins.
Fantasy Tip: Conforto ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) can officially be seated against lefties, as this is confirmation the team plans to limit his at-bats in the final two weeks. OF Michael Cuddyer ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will see those at-bats and is worth the gamble when he plays.

The New York Mets likely will go back to a five-man starting rotation in the near future, according to manager Terry Collins.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known which starter will be taken out of the rotation, but Jon Niese ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) and Dillon Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) appear to be the most likely candidates. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid the pitcher that loses his starting job.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins is expected to return next season. General manager Sandy Alderson and Collins are expected to meet this weekend to discuss the manager's future plans. Alderson is also expected to return for next year, and the club has an option on Alderson's original four-year guaranteed deal that will expire this year. "I think Terry has done a fine job this season," the GM said. "I think we've improved in a lot of areas. We've seen growth in our young players, particularly in the pitching -- both in the rotation and the bullpen. That's been well-managed. I think we're positioned well for 2015."
