New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) visited the team and took swings Saturday, July 23. It was the first time he swung a bat since being placed on the disabled list Monday, May 23, and Duda said he hopes to begin a rehab assignment in a "couple weeks."
Fantasy Tip: Duda remains a potential stash candidate in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, as once healthy, he should roll right back into near full-time at-bats and start all games against right-handed pitchers. Over the past three seasons, he has returned a .477 slugging percentage with 64 home runs and 184 RBI over 327 games.

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) ran and played some catch for the first time since May Monday, July 18. In a best-case scenario, he could go on a rehab assignment by early August.
Fantasy Tip: It's been a slow road back for Duda and his fantasy owners. He's relevant when on the field, but that won't be for a while yet, and he was likely dumped in a lot of mixed leagues. He'll help in power (seven homers in 39 games), but he'll bring your squad down in average. Consider adding him when he's closer to a return if your lineup needs pop. James Loney has been seeing most of the starts at first base in the meantime.

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) will resume baseball activities next week in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Fantasy Tip: The team is doing fine without Duda in the lineup for the moment, but it hopes to have Duda for the stretch run and a possible try for the National League East championship. In the meantime, watch for James Loney to make continued starts at first base.

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is still approximately two weeks away from baseball activities, which all but ends the potential of a return in July.
Fantasy Tip: James Loney has been filling in for New York with Duda out, and Loney is a viable starter in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, and he could do in a pinch in deep mixed setups. Duda is worth stashing in the majority of seasonal leagues, but you'll want to monitor his progress and keep your expectations in check going forward.
