New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday, May 19, he's not actively pursuing trades for hitters at this point. Alderson suggested the team will wait until 3B David Wright (back) and C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) return from their injuries before making any roster decisions. The Mets entered Tuesday ranked 22nd in home runs (30), 25th in batting average (.238) and 24th in on-base percentage (.302).
Fantasy Tip: In terms of OPS, 1B Lucas Duda ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been the most effective member of the Mets' regular lineup. Duda is 4-for-15 during a current three-game hitting streak, with three extra-base hits. Duda will continue to be a GPP option on FantasyScore, but he'll soon need some more help around him.
