The New York Mets placed RP Gonzalez Germen (flu) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 13, and recalled SP Jacob deGrom from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: deGrom is expected to pitch out of the bullpen, so he has little to no fantasy value at this time.

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday, April 8. He'll miss the rest of the 2014 season.
Fantasy Tip: This leaves a giant vacuum in the Mets' SV picture, which is currently being filled by Jose Valverde. This gives him some more leeway, and he's looked decent lately. But for the rest of the season, he's a shaky bet. Others, including Jeurys Familia, Gonzalez Germen and Vic Black or someone not currently on the club could chime in. Valverde is best used as a third mixed closer. Be careful.

New York Mets RP LaTroy Hawkins (testicle) is expected to be available to pitch Friday, Aug. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Hawkins will need to be rested down the stretch, but he's the favorite for the majority of save chances if Bobby Parnell (neck) doesn't return again this year. Gonzalez Germen and David Aardsma might receive consideration, too. Germen closed out the game last night with Hawkins unavailable.

New York Mets RP LaTroy Hawkins is likely unavailable on Thursday, Aug. 15. Manager Terry Collins indicated that Gonzalez Germen or David Aardsma may close if the team encounters a save situation in the club's contest tonight.
Fantasy Tip: Hawkins blew a first save on Wednesday, his first since Bobby Parnell (neck) went on the DL, and his 40-year-old bones probably need a break. He still remains the favorite for saves for the Mets, although those mentioned may vulture opportunities a little more often than a regular closer would.
