New York Mets C Anthony Recker could see more playing time over C John Buck after he hit a home run Tuesday, July 2. Buck hit .241 with nine home runs and 25 RBIs in April but has slowed since and is hitting just .205 with 13 long balls and 39 RBIs on the year. Buck hit .167 in June. Recker is hitting only .182 with three homers and 10 RBIs.
Fantasy Tip: Recker is unlikely to outright take Buck's job away from him, although he could see more frequent starts if he can stay hot. Buck's power potential makes him a nice second catcher in leagues that start two backstops.
