New York Mets manager Terry Collins said INF Jordany Valdespin could see some time at second base if 2B Daniel Murphy continues to struggle.
Fantasy Tip: Valdespin is playing a super utility role with the Mets, leaving him as an option mainly in NL-only leagues. He'll become a bit more valuable if he's playing often at second base, but it's unlikely that Murphy is benched outright.

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 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 manager Terry Collins said the team will stick with their current stable of outfielders - OFs Lucas Duda, Collin Cowgill, Marlon Byrd, Mike Baxter and Jordany Valdespin. Byrd figures to have the best chance for an everyday role at the moment.
Fantasy Tip: The most common outfield alignment will probably involve Duda, Cowgill and Byrd. None are ringing endorsements for mixed leagues unless you're in a cavernous format. NL-only leagues are a different story.

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.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said 2B Jordany Valdespin will make the roster. Collins also said the team plans to carry two left-handed pitchers in the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Valdespin has impressed Collins in camp with his performance and position versatility. With both David Wright (intercostal) and Daniel Murphy (intercostal) dinged up, Valdespin could get plenty of early-season PT.

New York Mets 2B Jordany Valdespin (groin) is stating his case to make the opening day roster by hitting his third spring homer off Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Monday, March 11. However, he left the game early after being hit by a pitch in his groin. "I'm good," Valdespin said. "I'm good. Everything is fine. The doctor said nothing bad. Everything is good. Everything is working normally. Everything is right." Valdespin is batting .370 (10-for-27) with six RBIs in spring training, and he'll continue to see time in the outfield, according to manager Terry Collins. Valdespin is likely directly competing with OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis now. At this point, Valdespin seems to be a lock for the roster.

New York Mets 2B Jordany Valdespin started in left field and hit a home run Friday, March 8, and he's now hitting .333 with two home runs this spring. Manager Terry Collins said he's "still searching" for options in the outfield. Valdespin will likely have to beat out 2B Justin Turner or OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis for a spot on the roster.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said SS Jordany Valdespin will start playing some outfield in spring training, and he's hitting .429 in the Grapefruit League currently. OFs Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who is hitless in his last 15 at-bats, and Collin Cowgill are the favorites to platoon in center, but OF Matt Den Dekker is entering the picture. However, Den Dekker is unlikely to earn a roster spot, and he's not currently on the 40-man roster.
