Mets | Lucas Duda not swinging yet

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:52:15 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) has not been able to start swinging a bat at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is still a few weeks away from returning to the lineup, so owners should monitor his recovery. Michael Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) could see most of the playing time at first base and could be a starting option against certain opponents.

Mets | Lucas Duda receives positive news

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:27:11 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) was diagnosed with a muscle strain in his back and should miss the minimum of 15 days, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is worth stashing in all formats, as he should be able to make an impact during the final weeks of the regular season. He was turning it on in the second half with nine home runs and a .950 OPS over 27 games since the All-Star break. His absence should ensure everyday at-bats for Daniel Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) who is also really turning it on of late with a .357/.373/.600 slash line over his past 16 games.

Mets | Lucas Duda to DL

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 15:05:54 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, Aug. 22, with a back injury. He'll receive a second opinion Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Duda is believed to have a lower back strain, but his season could be in jeopardy with just over a month left. Michael Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is in at first base Saturday and figures to benefit most. He's a matchup play on FantasyScore.

Mets | Lucas Duda back in lineup

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:35:46 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is back in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) missed a handful of games with a back ailment, but he was very hot with the stick before that. It's a good idea to return him to your starting lineups everywhere tonight against a right-handed pitcher in a hitter's park.

Mets | Lucas Duda out against lefty

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 08:03:27 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is out of the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 16, against the Pittsburgh Pirates and LHP Jeff Locke. OF Michael Cuddyer will start at first base and hit sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting only .255 against right-handed pitching, but he does have seven home runs, and he can be used in GPP tournaments.

Mets | Lucas Duda has lumbar strain

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 14:08:17 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is dealing with a lumbar strain and is out of the lineup for the fourth straight game Friday, Aug. 14. He hit in the cages Friday and plans to take ground balls and normal batting practice. Duda said he's feeling better, and manager Terry Collins said it's possible that Duda plays Saturday, Aug. 15. If Duda doesn't return Saturday, he'd be eyeing a return early next week with the team facing another left-hander Sunday, Aug. 16. Collins said the team isn't considering putting Duda on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Duda's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) owners can rest easy knowing he won't be going on the DL, but a setback could land him there. Michael Cuddyer will likely continue starting at first if Duda can't play, and he's looked healthy since his return from his own DL stint. Cuddyer is a midrange outfield pick on FantasyScore.

Mets | Lucas Duda still sitting out

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:14:06 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is out of the lineup again Friday, Aug. 14. OF Michael Cuddyer is once again starting at first base and is hitting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: There's a chance that Duda will need to go on the DL if he can't return to the lineup this weekend. Plan for that possibility if you own him. Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has three hits in eight at-bats since returning from the DL, and despite subpar numbers against lefties this year, you could do much worse for an outfield value play on FantasyScore tonight.

Mets | Lucas Duda a candidate for DL?

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 15:15:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) wasn't feeling all that much better after receiving medicine for a stiff back Thursday, Aug. 13, and manager Terry Collins said Duda might have to go on the disabled list if he can't play Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Make plans to be without Duda ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) for longer if you own him in standard leagues. If he's in the lineup tomorrow night against Pittsburgh Pirates lefty J.A. Happ, he's not a terrible FantasyScore play, as he's improved drastically against southpaws in 2015.

Mets | Lucas Duda expects to play Friday

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 12:09:11 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) said his stiff back is feeling much better after taking some medication, and he's expecting to be back in the lineup Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has missed the last three games. Even though he'd be facing a left-hander tomorrow night (Pittsburgh Pirates starter J.A. Happ), Duda has good numbers against lefties this year (.304/.355/.894 with five home runs in 102 at-bats), and Happ is one of the weaker southpaw starters.

Mets | Lucas Duda out again

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:09:15 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is out of the lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, Aug. 12. OF Michael Cuddyer is starting at first base and hitting fifth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Duda's back injury isn't considered serious, and the Mets gave him another day off while facing a lefty. Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had a couple hits in his first start back from the DL last night, but he's hitting only .231 (15-for-65) with only one of his eight home runs against southpaws this year. He shouldn't excite daily players all that much.
