Mets | Jeurys Familia unavailable

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 13:20:54 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia had difficulty getting loose Tuesday, July 8, and will not be used Wednesday, July 9. Manager Terry Collins called it a red flag.

Fantasy Tip: Familia finished off the Braves last night in a non-save situation, when Jenrry Mejia was unavailable. Familia appears to be the No. 2 candidate for saves for the Mets, so he is worth a speculative add in NL-only and deep leagues, if you're searching for saves. However, if there is a health issue, Carlos Torres or Vic Black could be next in line.

Mets | Carlos Torres injured

Tue, 06 May 2014 13:16:27 -0700

New York Mets RP Carlos Torres (lat) is dealing with an "upper lat issue," but it's not considered to be serious. It's unknown if he'll be able to pitch Tuesday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Torres is a lurker for save opportunities if Kyle Farnsworth and Daisuke Matsuzaka continue to be unreliable in high-leverage situations late in games. Keep Torres' name in mind if you're in a very deep league.

Mets | Daisuke Matsuzaka blows lead

Tue, 06 May 2014 08:31:46 -0700

New York Mets RP Daisuke Matsuzaka blew a three-run lead in the eighth inning in a loss to the Miami Marlins Monday, May 5. Matsuzaka walked the first two hitters he faced in the inning. "When I was warming up in the bullpen, I was struggling with my command," Matsuzaka said through an interpreter. "Going into the game, I just tried to focus on the batter and getting outs. But I couldn't control my body well today. I really regret taking away Niese's win and the team win." Matsuzaka had walked six in 10 1/3 innings in seven relief appearances prior to Monday's outing, but he was working for the third straight day after warming up in the bullpen Sunday, May 4. RPs Carlos Torres and Jeurys Familia were unavailable to pitch Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Such are the perils of owning Dice-K in hopes he receives some save opportunities. He technically isn't even the closer - that job belongs to Kyle Farnsworth - making him mainly an NL-only commodity desperate owners.
