Mets | David Wright avoiding DL for now

Tue, 31 May 2016 14:09:46 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) received an injection in his neck Tuesday, May 31, which will allow him to avoid the disabled list for now. However, there's no guarantee he'll return to the starting lineup anytime soon. Wright hasn't played since last Friday and was diagnosed with a herniated disc in his neck. The soonest Wright could play would be Friday, June 3. If he can't play by then, he'll likely land on the DL.

Fantasy Tip: Given Wright's long history of injuries, especially in his back and neck, it's more likely that he'll land on the DL eventually than avoid it. Plan for that if you own him. In most mixed leagues, he probably isn't worth the hassle of stashing. Wilmer Flores should continue to see everyday at-bats either at third base or first, and he's worth owning in NL-only leagues for his power and multiposition eligibility.

Mets | David Wright remains out

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:33:35 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. SS Wilmer Flores is at the hot corner and is batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos.

Fantasy Tip: With Wright likely headed for the DL, Flores should continue to see regular at-bats and can be useful for infield depth in deeper mixed and NL-only leagues for his pop. However, he doesn't hold much daily value hitting low in the lineup tonight. Wright appears headed for another long absence due to injury and can be dropped in the majority of leagues.

Mets | David Wright will visit doctor

Mon, 30 May 2016 14:32:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) has a herniation in a disk in his neck and is scheduled to see a doctor Tuesday, May 31.

"Yes, I'm concerned about David Wright possibly (going on the disabled list)," manager Terry Collins said Monday, May 30. "The condition he's been playing in and the condition he's in right now, yeah, I'm concerned about it. I know this guy plays with a lot of discomfort. He always has. When he can't play, he's hurt."

Fantasy Tip: Wright's fantasy stock is plummeting, and it isn't out of the question to act upon this news now and find a replacement. The veteran third baseman isn't worth stashing in the majority of seasonal leagues, especially since he has missed substantial time in five of the past six seasons. Look for Eric Campbell, Wilmer Flores and Ty Kelly to receive some looks at the hot corner, but they're all poor fantasy options.

Mets | David Wright may go on DL

Mon, 30 May 2016 09:52:47 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) may need to be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of his neck injury, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation over the next few days to see if Wright will go on the disabled list. Eric Campbell, Wilmer Flores and Ty Kelly are all options to see time at third base while Wright is sidelined but none of the players are strong fantasy options.

Mets | David Wright remains sidelined

Mon, 30 May 2016 07:24:48 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Monday, May 30. 3B Ty Kelly will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly has gone hitless in eight at-bats since joining the Mets a week ago and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Mets | David Wright out again

Sun, 29 May 2016 14:58:33 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) is out of the starting lineup Sunday, May 29, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Wright's replacement, SS Wilmer Flores (hamstring), is returning to the lineup and will bat sixth against Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw. Wright may be unavailable on Monday, May 30, as well.

Fantasy Tip: Right now the team is worried about the DL for Wright, so this injury could turn out to be a serious one. Stash Wright away in all but shallow leagues. Flores may be worth monitoring in daily leagues if he can hit well, because he and Ty Kelly might replace Wright in the lineup for a while.

Mets | David Wright out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 14:33:08 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (neck) has neck issues and will not start Saturday, May 28, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. 3B Ty Kelly takes Wright's place and bats seventh against Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda.

Fantasy Tip: Do not pick up Kelly in DFS leagues. He's worth stashing away in keeper/dynasty leagues for his future production, but Kelly is struggling in his callup. As for Wright, wait and see what this latest injury does to his availability.

Mets | David Wright not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:53:47 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 24, against the Washington Nationals. 3B Ty Kelly is batting eighth against Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg. The team has also moved SS Asdrubal Cabrera to the No. 2 spot in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wright has dealt with back issues in recent games, but this appears to be a normal night out of the starting lineup. Kelly was hitting .391 in the minors at the time of his promotion and may be worth a flyer in DFS leagues Tuesday night. Wait and see how Kelly is used before picking him up in other leagues. As for Cabrera, he has five hits in his last four games and is worth the fantasy risk because of his movement up the lineup.

Mets | David Wright drives in three

Mon, 23 May 2016 21:58:11 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright 1-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the Washington Nationals Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Wright has picked up a hit in each of his last four games but is hitting only .225 on the season. He should still be a starting option in most mixed leagues but may not be a great option for owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Mets | Lucas Duda out a while

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:49:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 1B Lucas Duda (back) will be out four to six weeks with a lower back stress fracture, according to manager Terry Collins. INF Ty Kelly will be part of a committee at first base with 3B Eric Campbell in the short term. SS Wilmer Flores (hamstring) is expected to start the majority of games there once he returns from the disabled list. OF Michael Conforto will also work out at first base in anticipation of playing some games there, according to Collins. 3B David Wright is not a consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly was mashing at Class AAA Las Vegas (.391/.478/.548), but his stay is likely to be short. Don't overvalue him in NL-only leagues. Flores has some surprising pop for a middle infielder and could become even more attractive with first base eligibility as depth in cavernous mixed and NL-only affairs. Make sure to stash Duda everywhere because of his 30-homer potential.
