New York Mets manager Terry Collins said OF Rick Ankiel will start in center field against right-handed pitchers and OF Juan Lagares will receive starts against lefties.
Fantasy Tip: Ankiel's high strikeout totals combined with minimal playing time limit him only to NL leagues for the time being.

The New York Mets will sign free-agent OF Rick Ankiel (Astros), and he'll join the team Monday, May 13, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: The Mets have been lacking an outfielder with true pop, other than the inconsistent Lucas Duda. Ankiel will give them that, but he'll also strike out plenty and ruin your team's batting average. It's unclear how much he'll play, but he figures to bump Mike Baxter and Juan Lagares out of playing time. Ankiel is an option if you're desperate for some home runs and can live with an abysmal BA.

New York Mets OF Collin Cowgill was sent to the minors because he was overswinging after hitting a grand slam on opening day. OF Andrew Brown was brought up to breathe life into the outfield. Collins mentioned how Brown was hitting lefties well at Triple-A Las Vegas. Brown was hitting .286 (8-for-28) against lefties and .400 (28-for-70) against righties.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Collins plans to use Brown mainly against left-handed pitchers, and he could spell Ike Davis at first base on days the team faces a tough lefty. Juan Lagares will mainly be used as a defensive replacement late in games, so at the moment, Brown looks to have more value in NL leagues than Lagares.

The New York Mets optioned OF Collin Cowgill to Triple-A Las Vegas Friday, May 3, to make room on the roster for OF Andrew Brown. Cowgill was hitting only .157 (8-for-510 with two home runs and eight RBIs this year, and he was hitless in his last 13 at-bats and made a costly error earlier this week. Brown was hitting .367 (36-for-98) with two home runs and 27 RBIs in 25 games at Las Vegas, and he had an active 11-game hitting streak and led the Pacific Coast League with 13 doubles.
Fantasy Tip: Brown is mainly for outfield depth, but he could split playing time in center field with Juan Lagares. Temper some of the offensive expectations for Brown, since the PCL is probably the most hitter-friendly league in the minors. For now, he's only an option in NL leagues unless he receives consistent playing time.

New York Mets OF Collin Cowgill will see his playing time diminish with OF Juan Lagares on roster.
Fantasy Tip: Lagares is expected to start Wednesday, and he'll most likely be used most often in center field, which is his most comfortable position. Take a look at Lagares only in cavernous NL-only formats.
