Mets | Bartolo Colon expects to make next start

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:01:02 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (back) has been dealing with back spasms but said he will make his next start Saturday, April 19. SP Daisuke Matsuzaka, who will pitch out of the bullpen, can be rotation insurance in case Colon can't go.

Fantasy Tip: Colon's back spasms likely affected him in his rough outing Sunday. Be wary of starting him this weekend until he shows that he can get past it without it affecting his performance.

Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka could pitch if Jon Niese isn't ready

Sun, 30 Mar 2014 12:24:25 -0700

If New York Mets SP Jon Niese (elbow) is unable to make his scheduled start against the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, April 6, SP Daisuke Matsuzaka could be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to make the start.

Fantasy Tip: Matsuzaka pitched well during spring training, allowing nine runs (eight earned) and 25 hits over 23 1/3 innings in six starts, with four walks and 25 strikeouts. However, he lost the competition for the No. 5 spot in the rotation to Jenrry Mejia. That being said, he should be back in the majors sooner rather than later and could be worth a gamble in NL-only leagues.

Sun, 30 Mar 2014 12:18:51 -0700

If Mejia is unable to make his scheduled start against the Cincinnati Reds Friday, April 4, SP Daisuke Matsuzaka would be called up from the minors to pitch, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Mets | Concerned with Jenrry Mejia

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 12:36:13 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins is concerned with the bunion that is bothering SP Jenrry Mejia (foot).

Fantasy Tip: All signs point to Daisuke Matsuzaka winning the No. 5 rotation job over Mejia, especially now. Mejia could use some more seasoning and work on his control. Dice-K is an option for those needing rotation depth in NL-only leagues.

Mets | Fifth starter competition still open

Tue, 25 Mar 2014 12:55:48 -0700

The New York Mets paid SP Daisuke Matsuzaka $100,000 Tuesday, March 25, for the right to send him to the minors if they choose, meaning the competition for the fifth starting spot is still on between him and SP Jenrry Mejia. Each pitcher will start once this weekend. "The competition is still open," general manager Sandy Alderson said. "It doesn't mean the competition is going to be determined exclusively on those two (Montreal) outings." Matsuzaka can demand his release if he's not on the major league roster by May 30.

Mets | Jennry Mejia still in rotation mix

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 19:35:15 -0700

New York Mets SP Jennry Mejia is still in the mix for the fifth spot in the rotation, although it is believed SP Daisuke Matsuzaka has a leg up in the competition. Mejia is due to start Friday, March 28, in an exhibition game in Montreal against the Toronto Blue Jays. He could then be optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas to start the season. He has an understanding with the Mets that he will not be considered for a relief role.

Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka has edge for final spot

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 15:41:12 -0700

New York Mets SP Daisuke Matsuzaka shut out the St. Louis Cardinals into the seventh inning in his spring outing Monday, March 24, and appears to be locked in as the team's No. 5 starter. The team must inform him if he's made the roster by noon Tuesday, March 25, or they must give him a $100,000 retention bonus to send him to the minors or release him. "It certainly gives him an edge, because he's done it before, and he's done it a lot. But certainly, with the way Jenrry threw yesterday, he's got to be in that mix," manager Terry Collins said. Matsuzaka has a 3.86 spring ERA in 18 2/3 innings, and SP Jenrry Mejia has a 2.89 ERA in 9 1/3 innings.
