New York Mets manager Terry Collins plugged 2B Justin Turner in at first base for the game Friday, May 3, against the Atlanta Braves, with struggling 1B Ike Davis getting another day of rest.
Mon, 29 Apr 2013 13:15:06 -0700
New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) is out of the lineup with a stiff neck Monday, April 29.
Fantasy Tip: The club is hoping it's just a day-to-day situation, so stay tuned on this one. Justin Turner is the likely replacement if Wright misses a few days. Jordany Valdespin could also fill in, if needed.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he has no plans to use OF Lucas Duda at first base on days that 1B Ike Davis does not play. 2B Justin Turner is starting in place of Davis at first base Tuesday, April 23, against a left-handed pitcher. "Lucas has played pretty well in left field right now," Collins said. "Now, if I go to him today and say, 'Look, you need to start taking groundballs at first base,' I'm not sure what kind of messages that sends."

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said INF Justin Turner (ankle) looked OK while testing his ankle running the bases Sunday, March 31, so he should be available to play on Opening Day Monday, April 1.

The New York Mets will wait until Sunday, March 30, to decide whether to place 2B Justin Turner (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list. 3B Zach Lutz will make the 25-man roster if Turner has to go on the disabled list.
Fri, 29 Mar 2013 12:44:23 -0700
New York Mets 2B Justin Turner (hamstring) will start the year on the disabled list.
Wed, 27 Mar 2013 16:39:33 -0700
New York Mets 2B Justin Turner (calf) left the game early with a strained left calf Wednesday, March 27.
Fantasy Tip: Turner probably won't be ready for opening day now, increasing the chances that Omar Quintanilla will make the roster. Jordan Valdespin will become more valuable in NL leagues if either David Wright (intercostal) or Daniel Murphy (intercostal) have to start on the DL.
Wed, 27 Mar 2013 14:51:41 -0700
New York Mets OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis (knee) could make the opening day roster over INF Omar Quintanilla. Nieuwenhuis returned over the weekend and is only 2-for-26 (.077) this spring. 2Bs Jordany Valdespin or Justin Turner would be counted on to play shortstop if anything were to happen to SS Ruben Tejada if Nieuwenhuis makes the roster over Valdespin.

New York Mets 2B Justin Turner (ankle) received three at-bats in a minor league game and an at-bat in a Grapefruit League contest Thursday, March 21, and passed all tests with his sprained right ankle. Turner and OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis (knee) are scheduled to play in a minor league game Friday, March 22. Nieuwenhuis went 1-for-2 with three walks in a minor league game Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Turner could see significant playing at either second or third base depending on how David Wright (intercostal) and Daniel Murphy (intercostal) progress. Turner is an NL-only commodity only.
Wed, 20 Mar 2013 14:36:50 -0700
New York Mets manager Terry Collins said 3B David Wright (intercostal) has a better chance of being on the opening day roster than 2B Daniel Murphy (intercostal). 2B Jordany Valdespin could start at second base and 2B Justin Turner (ankle) could start at third if both Wright and Murphy begin on the disabled list. Turner is expected to start in a spring game Friday, March 22, after dealing with a sprained right ankle.
Fantasy Tip: This situation is very fluid with all of the injuries. Keep an eye on the Wright and Murphy in the final days of spring training. Valdespin seems to be the biggest beneficiary and could become a valuable utility man in NL leagues to start the year.
