Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera not worried about injury

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:57:08 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) said he will be ready to play against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is off to a respectable start with 14 runs, three home runs, 17 RBI and a .283/.335/.392 slash line. He is a low-end option in the majority of leagues, but his full-time at-bats carry plenty of value in deep mixed and NL-only formats. Stay tuned for updates, but it looks like Cabrera should be back Friday.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera exits with back spasms

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:49:54 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) left the game Wednesday, May 25, with back spasms. SS Matthew Reynolds replaced him.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds is 0-for-6 in his young career, and hit just .238 in 130 at-bats at Class AAA Las Vegas. He's not much of an option in fantasy if Cabrera is out for a stretch.

Mets | David Wright not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:53:47 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 24, against the Washington Nationals. 3B Ty Kelly is batting eighth against Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg. The team has also moved SS Asdrubal Cabrera to the No. 2 spot in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wright has dealt with back issues in recent games, but this appears to be a normal night out of the starting lineup. Kelly was hitting .391 in the minors at the time of his promotion and may be worth a flyer in DFS leagues Tuesday night. Wait and see how Kelly is used before picking him up in other leagues. As for Cabrera, he has five hits in his last four games and is worth the fantasy risk because of his movement up the lineup.

Mets | David Wright takes a seat

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:52:37 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is resting and is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20. 3B Eric Campbell is at the hot corner and is batting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Wily Peralta. Also, SS Asdrubal Cabrera moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets will continue to rest Wright often in order to keep him healthy all year, which will limit his already plummeting fantasy value. He's no longer a viable starter at third for fantasy owners in mixed leagues. Campbell is batting .212 in 33 at-bats and has limited fantasy appeal. Cabrera makes for an intriguing midrange shortstop option with the move up the order and with a juicy matchup in daily affairs.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera dropped in order

Fri, 13 May 2016 15:49:03 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera was dropped to seventh in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Friday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: With David Wright and Michael Conforto in the lineup, Cabrera gets pushed down from the top of the order Friday night. Cabrera is hitting a healthy .290 this year but lacks power and has only two home runs and 11 RBI. The drop in the order makes him less attractive in daily formats as a mid- to low-range middle infielder.

Mets | David Wright, Neil Walker take a seat

Sun, 08 May 2016 12:26:41 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright and 2B Neil Walker (shin) are not in the lineup on Sunday, May 08, against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner. SS Asdrubal Cabrera will move up into Wright's usual second spot in the order, while 3B Eric Campbell will take a turn at third base and bat eighth. INF Wilmer Flores draws the start in place of Walker and hit sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It's a rest day for Wright, but Walker is sitting out as a result of taking a few foul balls off of his shin on Saturday. Campbell and Flores are both batting below .200 and should be avoided in DFS as well as regular fantasy formats.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera hits second home run

Wed, 04 May 2016 13:44:56 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during the Mets' 8-0 win over the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera is off to a nice start with 10 runs, two home runs, nine RBI and a .304/.366/.435 slash line. He is a viable option at the 6 in the majority of seasonal leagues and a solid middle infielder in deep mixed formats. Remember, Cabrera turned it on in the second half last season with a .328/.372/.544 slash line after the All-Star break.

Mets | David Wright sits out

Wed, 04 May 2016 07:19:43 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4, with INF Wilmer Flores hitting seventh. C Kevin Plawecki is also out with C Rene Rivera hitting eighth. SS Asdrubal Cabrera moved up to hit second.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Flores nor Rivera are worth streaming against Jhoulys Chacin in DFS. Cabrera has a .307-1-7 line on the season and is a mediocre option in DFS.

Mets | Several NYM regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:36:28 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson, SS Asdrubal Cabrera and 1B Lucas Duda are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Sunday, May 1. OF Juan Lagares will bat leadoff and play right field, INF Wilmer Flores will bat sixth and play shortstop and INF Eric Campbell will bat eighth and play first base. In addition, C Kevin Plawecki has returned to the lineup and will bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Granderson and Duda are resting because a left-handed pitcher is on the mound, while the switch-hitting Cabrera is receiving his first off day of the regular season. Of the replacements in Sunday's lineup, only Lagares has experienced any success at the plate this year, batting .281 with two extra-base hits and two RBI through his first 32 at-bats. Lagares should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy contests.

Mets | Asdrubal Cabrera plays Monday

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 11:28:26 -0700

New York Mets SS Asdrubal Cabrera (knee) went 0-for-3 and played five innings at shortstop in a Grapefruit League game Monday, March 28, for the first time since March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera should be good to go for opening day this Sunday night. He offers some notable power at a position that lacks it, so he's worth a look as middle infield depth in deep mixed leagues in the late rounds.
