Mets | Bartolo Colon expects to make next start

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 12:01:02 -0700

New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon (back) has been dealing with back spasms but said he will make his next start Saturday, April 19. SP Daisuke Matsuzaka, who will pitch out of the bullpen, can be rotation insurance in case Colon can't go.

Fantasy Tip: Colon's back spasms likely affected him in his rough outing Sunday. Be wary of starting him this weekend until he shows that he can get past it without it affecting his performance.

Mets | Ruben Tejada has not lost shortstop job

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 18:16:35 -0700

New York Mets SS Omar Quintanilla was in the starting lineup for the second time in four games Tuesday, April 15, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Manager Terry Collins insisted that it isn't a sign SS Ruben Tejada is losing the starting job. Collins cited Tuesday's inclusion of Quintanilla was a matchup issue, as Diamondbacks SP Bronson Arroyo had an opposing batting average of .295 by left-handed hitters (such as Quintanilla) last season, while righties hit just .219 against him.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada is hitting below the Mendoza line for the season, and his on-base percentage of .267 in 45 plate appearances does little for fantasy owners. For now, he is only worth using in the deepest of NL-only leagues until he starts to show some signs of life at the dish.

Mets | Curtis Granderson to avoid DL

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 16:06:39 -0700

Mets | Curtis Granderson seeing doctor

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:35:43 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson (forearm, rib cage, knee) is visiting with a doctor Tuesday, April 15, and is just as stiff as he was Monday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like Grandy will play tonight, and he might need a few more days off, too. Check back to see if he's in the starting lineup.

Mets | Committed to Lucas Duda at 1B

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:33:03 -0700

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he's committed to 1B Lucas Duda at first base, regardless of the team's outfield alignment.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets' outfield is ailing right now, but Duda will remain at first base. That's bad news for Ike Davis' playing time. Andrew Brown should see a short-term increase in playing time with Juan Lagares (hamstring) headed to the DL.

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 11:58:06 -0700

The New York Mets placed OF Juan Lagares (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 15, and recalled OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move, according to a team source.

Mets | X-rays negative on Curtis Granderson

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 08:37:03 -0700

New York Mets OF Curtis Granderson's (forearm, rib cage, knee) X-rays came back negative, but he struggled to put on his shoes after the game Monday, April 14. OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis is expected to be brought up from Triple-A Las Vegas to help with outfield depth. Granderson crashed into the outfield wall attempting to make a catch Monday but later left the game with encouragement from the training staff.

"I hit the wall with my forearm, which then lodged my elbow into my chest area. And then running full stride my left knee also hit," Granderson said. "As the game just kept going on, things just started to tighten up a little bit. The great thing is all the X-rays are negative. We just wanted to be on the safe side and check everything, which we were able to do at the ballpark."

Fantasy Tip: Lucas Duda can be moved to the outfield to help with the likely loss of Juan Lagares (hamstring), and Chris Young (quadriceps) is expected to return from the DL Friday. Until then, Andrew Brown may see more playing time if Grandy needs some rest.
