Mets | Michael Cuddyer not playing

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 12:18:05 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. 2B Kelly Johnson is starting at the keystone and hitting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola, while 2B Daniel Murphy moves over to first base.

Fantasy Tip: Eleven of Johnson's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) 12 home runs this year have come against right-handed pitchers, so he's worth a look on FantasyScore as a value pick tonight.

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:41:12 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer went 3-for-3 with a walk Sunday, Aug. 30, in a 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox. One of his hits was the game-winning single.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been hitting very well in the three weeks since he came off the disabled list. He is .471-2-6 in the past seven days and makes for a solid FantasyScore addition at this price.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting .346 with a home run and seven RBIs over the past seven days and is 2-for-3 in his career versus Kelly, making him a solid value play in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer starting at first base

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:39:16 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer is starting at first base and batting fifth against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Friday, Aug. 28. 2B Kelly Johnson draws out of the lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) appears to be over the nagging knee injury for the time being, but he still isn't receiving everyday playing time. Still, he is currently raking with a .350/.381/.600 slash line since returning from the disabled list and is worth targeting at FantasyScore Friday. Johnson's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) role could dwindle if he doesn't heat up at the plate. He has just six RBI and a .222/.273/.403 slash line over 22 games since joining the Mets. He is nothing more than a cavernous mixed and NL-only option is seasonal formats.

Mets | David Wright hitting cleanup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:18:43 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is starting at third base and batting fourth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Michael Cuddyer draws out of the lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Hitting in the heart of a scorching hot lineup, Wright ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is a high-end play at FantasyScore Thursday, especially at his current salary. Wright is going to receive some games off, but he still warrants ownership in the majority of seasonal leagues. Similarly, Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) isn't going to be a daily fixture in the lineup, which is a hit to his value.

Mets | Curtis Granderson receives night off

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 12:49:48 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson is not in the starting line Monday, Aug. 24. OF Michael Cuddyer is starting in right field and batting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid the surging Granderson ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. The veteran outfielder has eight home runs through his past 24 games with 20 runs and 24 RBI. Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is 7-for-29 since returning from the disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 11. He checks out as a viable value play at FantasyScore, but he shouldn't be confused for a lineup priority.

Mets | Michael Cuddyer sitting vs. Orioles

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 13:42:03 -0700

New York Mets OF Michael Cuddyer is not starting Wednesday, Aug. 19. OF Juan Lagares draws into the lineup in center field and is batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He is just 4-for-20 without an extra-base hit since being activated off the disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 11. Seasonal owners should be looking for an upgrade. Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) hasn't been receiving many at-bats recently, as he has started just five games in August. He does have a .370/.393/.667 slash line through 28 plate appearances this month, though. Still, FantasyScore players can likely find better values than Lagares.

Mets | Lucas Duda out against lefty

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 08:03:27 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda is out of the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 16, against the Pittsburgh Pirates and LHP Jeff Locke. OF Michael Cuddyer will start at first base and hit sixth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting only .255 against right-handed pitching, but he does have seven home runs, and he can be used in GPP tournaments.

Mets | Lucas Duda still sitting out

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:14:06 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is out of the lineup again Friday, Aug. 14. OF Michael Cuddyer is once again starting at first base and is hitting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: There's a chance that Duda will need to go on the DL if he can't return to the lineup this weekend. Plan for that possibility if you own him. Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has three hits in eight at-bats since returning from the DL, and despite subpar numbers against lefties this year, you could do much worse for an outfield value play on FantasyScore tonight.

Mets | Lucas Duda out again

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:09:15 -0700

New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) is out of the lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, Aug. 12. OF Michael Cuddyer is starting at first base and hitting fifth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Duda's back injury isn't considered serious, and the Mets gave him another day off while facing a lefty. Cuddyer ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had a couple hits in his first start back from the DL last night, but he's hitting only .231 (15-for-65) with only one of his eight home runs against southpaws this year. He shouldn't excite daily players all that much.
