New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is still considered the starter at first base, but 1B Ike Davis has started there once in each series and got the start Wednesday, April 16. 1B Josh Satin has started three games against lefties. Duda is hitting .364 (8-for-22) with a home run and four RBIs in his last five starts, but manager Terry Collins said Davis received the nod Wednesday because of his history at Chase Field and the fact that he wanted to get Davis a start in his hometown.
Fantasy Tip: This is a situation to stay away from unless you're in an NL-only league. Duda is the guy to own if you must have one of the trio.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said 1B Lucas Duda remains the team's starting first baseman despite the fact that 1B Ike Davis has started two of four games this week. 1B Josh Satin is also likely to start a game at first over the weekend. Duda is hitting .182 with two home runs and four RBIs to start the year.

New York Mets 1B Josh Satin might be the team's starting first basemen Friday, April 11, and Sunday, April 13, as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim use a left-handed starting pitcher.
Fantasy Tip: Satin might be a nice low-cost daily fantasy option in salary cap leagues this weekend if he indeed is in the starting lineup. Monitor the situation closely, as he has nice upside, a low salary, and will help you afford higher price talent at other positions. For weekly fantasy formats, he has much less appeal.

The New York Mets are still looking to trade 1B Ike Davis, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: If Davis is traded, Lucas Duda and Josh Satin would likely form some sort of platoon at first base. Until then, there's still some confusion on playing-time roles, even though Duda is receiving an "extended look" starting this weekend.

Updating a previous item, New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is expected to get an extended look as the first base starter, beginning Friday, April 4, over 1Bs Ike Davis and Josh Satin. Duda has started 0-for-6 with a walk and three strikeouts this year, but the team doesn't face a left-handed pitcher for the next two series.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins doesn't expect 1B Ike Davis (oblique) to return to the team this season after receiving a cortisone injection in his right oblique Tuesday, Sept. 3. He said his farewells to his teammates during their team fantasy football draft Monday, Sept. 2. Davis is headed to Arizona to begin his offseason after an exam in New York. He hit only .205 this year with nine home runs and 33 RBIs and spent almost a month with Triple-A Las Vegas.
Fantasy Tip: Josh Satin or Lucas Duda will fill in at first base for the rest of the season. It's safe to drop Davis in all formats now.

The New York Mets have an uncertain future at first base entering the 2014 season. Although the team has Ike Davis, Lucas Duda, Josh Satin and Wilmer Flores available to play, speculation is the Mets may go outside the organization and find someone else to play first.
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 15:52:47 -0700
New York Mets 3B Wilmer Flores (ankle) remains out of the lineup Friday, Aug. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Flores doesn't appear close to a return, and a trip to the disabled list is a realistic possibility. Josh Satin should continue to get the majority of starts at third in his absence.
