Mets | Updated timeline for David Wright

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:48:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) is not expected to return for the series against the Philadelphia Phillies beginning Friday, May 8, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all formats, and fantasy owners should hope the cautious approach means Wright is returning 100% healthy. While he is out, Dilson Herrera receives the biggest fantasy boost, as the Mets have realigned their infield to provide him everyday at-bats. Herrera's value is limited and fleeting, so consider him a desperation flier in all formats.

Mets | David Wright injury update

Fri, 01 May 2015 13:11:58 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) is receiving therapy and exercising Friday, May 1, for a second consecutive day, and he is scheduled to resume running Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to monitor Wright's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) recovery and return timeline. He is expected to be approximately a week away from returning. The Mets have shuffled the infield in his absence, and Daniel Murphy ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has moved to third base, and Dilson Herrera is manning the keystone position. Herrera's value is fleeting, though, and he can be ignored in the majority of formats.

Mets | David Wright targeting May 8?

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 15:14:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) could return for the series against the Philadelphia Phillies beginning Friday, May 8, according to the team.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners would be wise to avoid Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all formats until he returns and shakes off a little rust in a game or two. It is good timing for owners in weekly formats, as they'll have the weekend to assess Wright's play before returning him to their lineups for the following week. Eric Campbell's ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) fleeting value is fading by the day. Continue to check back for updates.

Mets | David Wright about a week away

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:06:29 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) is expected to play a minor league game sometime next week and then be activated in approximately a week, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all formats and check back for an official announcement on his return date. Eric Campbell's ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) fleeting value is coming to an end, although he will likely continue to see the odd start as Wright shakes the rust off initially.

Mets | David Wright takes batting practice

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:19:14 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) took live batting practice Wednesday, April 29. The only baseball activity he has yet to complete is turning while running. Wright has only run straight ahead. Wright is eligible to be activated from the disabled list Thursday, April 30, although he is unlikely to be ready to return before the weekend, and there is no word whether he might need any rehab games.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players can continue to ignore Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) until he returns and proves his health, and seasonal owners should stash him in all formats. Expect Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) to receive the majority of starts at third, and FantasyScore owners should view him as a desperation flier for contests, as he is 4-for-22 over the past six games.

Mets | David Wright ramping up activities

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 14:50:04 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) is ramping up his baseball activities in Florida Monday, April 27, but he isn't moving laterally while taking ground balls, according to assistant general manager John Ricco. Wright also took swings off a tee and did some soft toss. He can come off the disabled list Thursday, April 30, but he's not expected to be activated before the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) should be left out of weekly lineups this week, since it's a best-case scenario that he returns from the DL this weekend. Once he's back, though, he should be an acceptable third base option on a daily basis for FantasyScore owners. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will keep his low-end third base daily value for a little while longer.

Mets | Still no timetable for David Wright

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:38:51 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) said he is not setting a timetable for his return Thursday, April 23. Wright noted he will continue to make progress and be cautious.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is still likely two or three weeks away from returning to the lineup. Continue to stash him in seasonal leagues. Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been filling in at the hot corner for Wright, but Campbell offers little more than cap relief for FantasyScore players. However, his .394 on-base percentage is more conducive to daily contests and points formats. Continue to check back for updates on Wright's recovery.

Mets | David Wright to resume activities soon

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 14:09:18 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) has started exercises to keep his legs in shape, according to manager Terry Collins. Wright should begin baseball activities in the near future. General manager Sandy Alderson thinks Wright will miss a total of three weeks. He is eligible to return from the disabled list April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) could be around two weeks away from returning to the team. Stash him in a DL slot in standard leagues. Until then, Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will man the hot corner for the Mets. Campbell has just four hits in his first 16 at-bats, and he's a low-end third base option at FantasyScore.

Mets | Eric Campbell will be primary third baseman

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:32:39 -0700

New York Mets 3B/1B Eric Campbell will be the primary third baseman while 3B David Wright (hamstring) is out. INF Danny Muno will also receive a few starts at the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Consider Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) a nice low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests if he finds a groove at the plate. He is currently 2-for-8 with two runs and a RBI for the season. Campbell also has fleeting value in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Mets | David Wright likely out three weeks

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 14:09:56 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring) could return in two weeks, however, three weeks is a more realistic timeline, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Stash Wright in all formats and check back for updates on his recovery and for an official announcement on when he'll return. In his absence, Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has fleeting value in NL-only formats and is a potential low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests when facing a favorable pitching matchup. Still, expectations should be kept in check with Campbell, as he returned a .263/.322/.358 slash line over 190 at-bats last season.
