Mets | Travis d'Arnaud out vs. St. Louis

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:05:18 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the doubleheader Tuesday, July 26. C Rene Rivera is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Following the postponed game Monday, July 25, D'Arnaud is out of the lineup again. View d'Arnaud as a viable starting catcher in the majority of seasonal leagues. It's worth adding the backstop has been the subject of trade rumors recently. Rivera is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats given his career .590 OPS over eight seasons.
