New York Mets RP Scott Rice (elbow), currently pitching for Triple-A Las Vegas, has landed on the minor league disabled list because of an elbow issue. No structural damage was detected during an exam, so the team is hoping the DL stint will be brief.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he'll likely mix and match with eighth-inning setup duties. RP Kyle Farnsworth is a possibility, but so are RPs Jeurys Familia and Scott Rice, among others. The Mets will not immediately look to sign another late-inning reliever available on the free-agent market just yet. New York will also consider promoting SPs Rafael Montero or Jacob deGrom for a bullpen role, but it's unlikely to happen soon.
Fantasy Tip: The only thing really clear for now is that Jose Valverde is the team's closer with Bobby Parnell (elbow) out. That could change, too, but based on Papa Grande's performance this spring and on opening day, he'll have a little rope to play with.

New York Mets RP Scott Rice (hernia) will undergo surgery to repair a hernia, and he'll be done for the rest of the season.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins expects to use RP LaTroy Hawkins to close for the second straight day if a situation arises Wednesday, Aug. 7. Hawkins picked up his first save of the year Tuesday, Aug. 6.
Fantasy Tip: It looks as though Hawkins will have the first crack at closing for the Mets in the absence of Bobby Parnell (neck), but Scott Rice could also be used in left-heavy situations. Don't rule out David Aardsma seeing a chance or two if Hawkins falters, too. For fantasy purposes, Hawkins should be your first target.
