New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. INF Wilmer Flores draws into the starting lineup at third base and is batting third against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is having a respectable season with 39 runs, 13 home runs, 31 RBI and a .266/.321/.432 slash line and should be viewed as a low-end starter in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Flores is hitting when receiving the chance and owns a .290/.344/.510 slash line with 19 runs, eight home runs and 24 RBI since the calendar flipped to May. He's worth owning in deeper settings to plug in when he's in the lineup. Flores is also a viable flier in daily contests Wednesday.

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera will hit second Friday, July 15, against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jeremy Hellickson.
Fantasy Tip: With seven hits, including two homers, in the past seven games the thinking might be to give Cabrera more at-bats toward the top of the lineup. That said, Cabrera (.262-12-29) should see more time in your lineup due to his power and the position where he is batting.

New York Mets INF Wilmer Flores is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 7. SS Asdrubal Cabrera (personal) returns to shortstop and is hitting sixth, while 1B James Loney is at first base and batting fifth against Washington Nationals SP Lucas Giolito.
Fantasy Tip: Despite a hot streak of late (.375 average, four homers, seven RBI in July), Flores will lose fantasy luster with uncertain playing time now that Jose Reyes is the regular third baseman. Flores could split time with Loney or around the infield, but he's more of a depth option now in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Updating a previous report, New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera (personal) said he is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, because "a family illness kept him up all night."
Fantasy Tip: So it looks like Cabrera isn't injured but instead could use a little rest. He's a midrange fantasy shortstop with a .262/.321/.415 slash line, 10 home runs and 27 RBI on the season.
