Mets | Ruben Tejada could be traded

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 13:31:04 -0800

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada will likely serve as a backup middle infielder when camp ends, but there remains a chance he could be traded or released before Opening Day, according to team officials. He's set to make $3 million in 2016 in the final year of his deal. If they cut him more than 15 days before the season opener, they'd only be responsible for one-sixth of his salary. 3B Matt Reynolds or 2B Dilson Herrera would have to impress this spring in order for Tejada to be cut or traded.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada looks to be fine after suffering a broken leg in last year's playoffs. There is hope for more power from Tejada, and he won't hurt in average, either. However, playing time is the issue. If he remains with the Mets, he's a speculative add late in NL-only leagues. He'd have more fantasy value if he were to be traded, most likely.

Mets | Dilson Herrera could start at 2B

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 12:01:36 -0800

New York Mets 2B Dilson Herrera is a "viable alternative" at second base if 2B Daniel Murphy does not return in 2016. The Mets are expected to make a one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer to Murphy by the deadline Friday, Nov. 6. The Mets are prepared to use a middle-infield combination of SSs Wilmer Flores and Ruben Tejada and Herrera next year. Herrera hit .211 with three home runs and six RBI in 90 at-bats in the majors in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera hit 11 home runs and had a .331 batting average on the farm this year before calling up, so he surely has intriguing power for a middle infielder, and if he earns the starting job at the keystone if Murphy leaves, he definitely would garner attention in standard fantasy leagues as a middle infield option.

Mets | Daniel Murphy may be elsewhere in 2016

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 00:55:59 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy will not likely be retained next season by the team despite a late surge during the regular season and a strong postseason. The Mets may install either 2B Dilson Herrera or 2B Wilmer Flores at the position.

Fantasy Tip: New York Post writer Joel Sherman has heard Murphy ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) may be looking at a four-year deal worth $52 million. The club wants to keep the pitching staff together. Beware of Murphy for now, as his draft status is jumping high on some boards because of all his home runs.

Mets | Daniel Murphy out of lineup

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 15:50:54 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is out of the lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, Oct. 3, with 2B Dilson Herrera hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has a tough draw against Max Scherzer and isn't a good option on FantasyScore.

Mets | Wilmer Flores moving to keystone?

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 09:10:50 -0700

New York Mets SS Wilmer Flores has a "good possibility" of moving to second base when 2B Daniel Murphy (quadriceps) returns from the disabled list as soon as this weekend, according to a source familiar with internal team discussions. Murphy would move back to third base with SS Ruben Tejada playing shortstop at least in the short term. 2B Dilson Herrera would likely be the odd-man out in the infield. Flores has limited range at shortstop, and the Mets have struggled to turn double plays this year. Flores does have 10 home runs but is hitting only .243 with a .277 on-base percentage.

Fantasy Tip: This will do nothing to change Flores' ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) fantasy value at all. He does have suprising pop for a middle infielder, but his average isn't doing his owners any favors. Continue to view him as a low-end shortstop play on FantasyScore.

Mets | NY scuffling offensively

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 13:09:22 -0700

New York Mets 2B Dilson Herrera (1-for-17), OF Juan Lagares (3-for-23), 1B Lucas Duda (3-for-21) and OF Michael Cuddyer (3-for-21) have all been struggling on the team's current road trip. The Mets are hitting .168 with four home runs and eight runs scored while losing six straight on the road.

Fantasy Tip: That's a hint to consider using Jimmy Nelson ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) as a risk-reward option on FantasyScore against the Mets tonight. New York ranks 28th in baseball with a .659 OPS against right-handed pitchers. Shying away from Mets hitters right now in daily contests is wise.

Mets | NYM unlikely to pursue Everth Cabrera

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 17:51:25 -0700

The New York Mets are not expected to pursue SS Everth Cabrera, who was recently designated for assignment by the Baltimore Orioles, according to a team official. The Mets had expressed interest in Cabrera last offseason as a free agent but they are pleased with the production of SS Wilmer Flores, 2B Dilson Herrera and INF Ruben Tejada.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera hit .208 with four RBIs and two steals in 29 games for the O's before being let go. It wouldn't be surprising to see another team pick him up but he is unlikely to be a viable fantasy option again this season.

Mets | Ruben Tejada sitting out vs. Giants

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:24:03 -0700

New York Mets 2B Ruben Tejada is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 11. 2B Dilson Herrera is batting seventh and playing second base against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has heated up over the past 12 games, and he has batted second in 11 of them and first the other. During the span, he has four runs, four doubles, six RBI, a stolen base and a .333/.389/.417 slash line. He is worth considering in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, although his value is likely fleeting. Herrera ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is making his first start since Thursday, May 14, and should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players.

Mets | Ruben Tejada on paternity list

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 09:58:26 -0700

New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada was placed on the paternity list Thursday, June 11, and 2B Dilson Herrera was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada is likely to miss at least a few days. Expect Herrera ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) to fill in at the keystone in the meantime. Herrera carries very little FantasyScore appeal.

Mets | Dilson Herrera placed on DL

Sat, 16 May 2015 07:10:55 -0700

New York Mets 2B Dilson Herrera (finger) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 15, because of a fractured finger. The team also recalled 3B Eric Campbell from Class AAA Las Vegas (Nev.).

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how long Herrera ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will miss, so owners should monitor the situation. Daniel Murphy ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is expected to take over at second base and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider. Campbell likely will see most of the playing time at third base but probably is not a great option at this point.
