Mets | No Lucas Duda

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 12:15:27 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 29. 3B Eric Campbell is playing first base and hitting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: Duda has a .153 batting average against left-handed pitchers this season. With Cole Hamels on the hill for the Phillies, this is a strategic time to rest Duda. Remove Duda from your daily-transaction leagues and expect him to continue to sit against tough lefties.

Mets | Lucas Duda turning things around?

Thu, 29 May 2014 13:53:40 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda went 3-for-9 with two home runs and three RBIs in the three-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and he feels like he's starting to turn things around at the plate. "You can see he's a lot quieter at home plate," manager Terry Collins said of Duda. "He's the strongest guy in baseball for me. He doesn't need all that movement to create bat speed. I hope some of the adjustments he's made in the last seven days will start to help him out."
