New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he'll likely mix and match with eighth-inning setup duties. RP Kyle Farnsworth is a possibility, but so are RPs Jeurys Familia and Scott Rice, among others. The Mets will not immediately look to sign another late-inning reliever available on the free-agent market just yet. New York will also consider promoting SPs Rafael Montero or Jacob deGrom for a bullpen role, but it's unlikely to happen soon.
Fantasy Tip: The only thing really clear for now is that Jose Valverde is the team's closer with Bobby Parnell (elbow) out. That could change, too, but based on Papa Grande's performance this spring and on opening day, he'll have a little rope to play with.

The New York Mets will place RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) on the disabled list, and they'll purchase the contract of RP Kyle Farnsworth from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: A lot would have to happen for Farnsworth to become the team's next closer with Parnell sidelined. Jose Valverde should be owned in all leagues by now, and Vic Black might even receive a shot before Farnsworth is called upon in the ninth.
