New York Mets 1B John Mayberry Jr. will start in right field and bat fifth Sunday, April 12, against the Atlanta Braves.
Fantasy Tip: Mayberry Jr. ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a specialist against left-handed pitchers, but faces a tough matchup Sunday, against Braves SP Alex Wood. Mayberry Jr. has hit .270 in 537 career plate appearances against southpaws, with 31 home runs. With excellent splits and a low price, Mayberry Jr. will be a strong GPP play whenever the Mets take on a leftie. Wood has held left-handed hitters to a .238 average in his young career, but he has also allowed 16 home runs, compared to just three home runs by right-handed hitters.

New York Mets OF John Mayberry Jr. is drawing a start in left field against Atlanta Braves SP Eric Stults Friday, April 10. Mayberry is hitting third in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Mayberry ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is expected to see regular playing time against left-handers, at least early in the season. That could make him an occasional great value play at FantasyScore at a super cheap price. In 2014 against lefties, Mayberry hit .243 with five home runs in 70 at-bats.

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is sitting the bench against Atlanta Braves left-handed SP Eric Stults Friday, April 10. OF Michael Cuddyer is starting at first base and hitting fourth in the lineup, while OF John Mayberry Jr. draws a start in left field and is hitting third in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should be considered at FantasyScore as a value play against Stults. Cuddyer hit an astounding .412 with five of his 10 home runs against lefties in 51 at-bats last year.

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda isn't involved in a platoon at first base, but manager Terry Collins said Duda will sit one of the games this weekend with the team facing two left-handed pitchers from the Atlanta Braves Friday, April 10, and Sunday, April 12. OF John Mayberry Jr. will enter the lineup as a result, with OF Michael Cuddyer shifting to first base. Duda hit just .180 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 111 at-bats versus southpaws in 2014.
Fantasy Tip: Be careful with Duda ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) at FantasyScore this weekend. It's best to avoid him in both those games against lefty starters. Mayberry ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is much better in his career against lefties (.269 average), but he's a lukewarm daily option if he enters the starting lineup.
