Fantasy Tip: Familia may deserve a bit of a pass for this one. He recorded the first two outs of the inning, but he was then forced to sit for 44 minutes because of a rain delay, and he was lit up when play resumed. Still, he has now blown three straight save chances, and the recently acquired Tyler Clippard could start to steal away some saves opportunities any day now.

Fantasy Tip: A move away from the hitter-friendly environment of Great American Ballpark to the more pitching-friendly venue of Citi Field would cause Bruce's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) to drop a little bit. However, he has power that plays anywhere, so it probably wouldn't be a drastic shift.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:06:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was hitting .296 through just 77 plate appearances this season. d'Arnaud has shown flashes this season, but he has once again had tremendous difficulty staying in the lineup. He can be used by FantasyScore owners for as long as he's healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Familia's ERA remains at just 1.70, and he does have 27 saves for the season. It's a rough patch for a guy who had previously been nearly untouchable, but his leash can't be much longer with Tyler Clippard now nipping at his heals.

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) will return from the disabled list Friday, July 31, but manager Terry Collins said the team will be cautious with him upon his return. "He won't be a four (games) in a row guy," Collins said of d'Arnaud. "He might play two and a day off. It'll all depend on how he feels." C Kevin Plawecki is likely to remain on the major league roster with C Anthony Recker being sent down. d'Arnaud hasn't played since June 20 and was hitting .296 with four home runs and 17 RBI.
Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been a fine fantasy catching commodity for his bat, but he just hasn't been able to stay healthy enough to be viable for fake owners. Now that he's back, he could be a great addition to a team in need of catching, and he could be a great value play on FantasyScore, too, when he's in the lineup.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:23:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be given a couple days to kick off the rust, but his power potential makes him a low-end catcher option on FantasyScore.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:03:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has lost considerable playing time to Nieuwenhuis lately because of a weak bat. Lagares has 17 hits in 68 at-bats (.250) in July with no home runs and five RBI. He should be avoided on FantasyScore today, and he could fall further down the depth chart if the Mets trade for another outfield bat at the deadline.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 07:31:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting .348 in his career against Andrew Cashner and is a decent low-end flyer on FantasyScore today.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 23:22:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Duda ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is hitting just .188 this month, but he has eight homers as well. He's a midrange option on FantasyScore.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 20:55:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players would be wise to give d'Arnaud ($3,100; 6.2% of cap) at least one or two full games to prove his health without any setbacks before pulling the trigger on him.

Updating a previous report, New York Mets 2B Wilmer Flores and SP Zack Wheeler are staying put, as a deal previously agreed upon Wednesday, July 29, for Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez has fallen through. General manager Sandy Alderson said "there is no trade" for Gomez and that a deal "will not transpire."
Fantasy Tip: Flores ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) could still be moved in another deal, and as such he is a risky FantasyScore play in the coming days as he could be a late scratch or early removal from a game.

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez is staying put, as the previously agreed upon deal for 2B Wilmer Flores and SP Zack Wheeler has fallen through. General manager Sandy Alderson said Wednesday, July 29, "there is no trade" for Gomez and that a deal "will not transpire."
Fantasy Tip: So much for that. Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is still a risky FantasyScore play in the coming days, as he is clearly on the trade block and could be dealt. He could be late scratch or early removal from a game, costing FantasyScore players.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:36:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) returns to the Big Apple for his second tour of duty with the Mets. He is likely to serve as the regular left fielder while Michael Cuddyer ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is on the DL and could move over to center field when he returns to action. Wheeler, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, was expendable due to the team's excess of quality starting pitching. Ruben Tejada ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) or Juan Uribe ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) could see regular playing time at shortstop due to Flores' departure, with Uribe being the slightly better FantasyScore option.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:06:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Entering play Wednesday, July 29, Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) was hitting .266 with eight home runs and 43 RBIs through 73 games. He is currently in the third year of a four-year contract worth $28.3 million and is scheduled to become a free agent following the 2016 season.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:51:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has game-changing upside in both the real and fake game, and despite his down 2015 season, he should be viewed as a high-end outfielder in all formats. There are plenty of rumors flying around right now, though, so don't make any hasty fantasy decisions before there are official confirmations. For the year, Gomez has 42 runs, eight home runs, 43 RBI, seven stolen bases and a .266/.332/.429 slash line over 73 games.
