  • Mets Scouting Frankie Montas, Tyler Mahle

    The Mets have recently had scouts watching Athletics right-hander Frankie Montas and Reds right-hander Tyler Mahle, the New York Post’s Jon Heyman reports.  With the aggressive Mets clearly focused on a championship this year, it isn’t surprising that the club is already looking ahead to possible trade candidates on struggling teams. Montas is over 18…

  • Mets Avoid Arbitration With Chris Bassitt

    The Mets and right-hander Chris Bassitt have avoided an arbitration hearing by agreeing to a one-year, $8.65MM contract for the 2022 season, The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports (Twitter link).  There is also a mutual option attached to the deal, as if both sides trigger the option, Bassitt will receive $19MM in 2023 (or a $150K…

  • Max Scherzer Placed On 15-Day Injured List

    The New York Mets placed starting pitcher Max Scherzer (oblique) on the 15-day injured list on Saturday. The move comes as no surprise as the hard-throwing veteran is expected to be out for six to eight weeks with an oblique strain. The team recalled right-handed pitcher Jake Reed from Triple-A to take Scherzer's roster spot. Scherzer made eight starts before straining his oblique and went 5-1 with a 2.54 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP.

  • Starling Marte Batting Second In His Return

    New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte is set to make his return in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Colorado Rockies. He will be batting second in the lineup and he will be covering his usual right field post. Marte missed the team's previous four games while he was on the bereavement list. The 33-year-old veteran has appeared in 33 games so far this year and he's slashing .266/.311/.403 with three home runs, five stolen bases, 20 RBI and 20 runs. Make sure to slide him back into your lineup for Saturday's slate.

  • Mark Canha Sitting For Game 1 Of Doubleheader

    New York Mets outfielder Mark Canha is out of the starting lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Colorado Rockies. Starling Marte is making his return from the bereavement list in the game. He'll be batting second and covering right field. Joining him in the outfield will be Brandon Nimmo and Jeff McNeil. Canha is off to a nice start to the 2022 season. Over 30 games, he's slashing .294/.376/.392 with three home runs, 14 RBI and 16 runs. Expect to see him back in the lineup for Game 2 on Saturday.

  • Mets-Rockies Snowed Out Friday

    The game between the New York Mets and Colorado Rockies has been snowed out on Friday. The two teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday. Right-hander Carlos Carrasco was scheduled to toe the rubber for the Mets, while right-hander German Marquez was the scheduled starter for Colorado. The two starters will presumably be pushed back to Saturday. Fantasy managers need to make sure to remove any players from these two teams that they might have had in their starting lineups for Friday's action.

  • Tylor Megill To Play Catch On Friday

    New York Mets starting pitcher Tylor Megill (biceps) is scheduled to play catch on Friday, according to Mets beat writer Anthony DiComo. DiComo reports that Megill's arm is feeling better and that his timeline is looking far more favorable than his injured pitching-mates Max Scherzer (oblique) and Jacob deGrom (shoulder). Megill was diagnosed with right biceps tendonitis. He landed on the 15-day injured list this past weekend. We still don't have a very specific timeline for his return, but things should become more clear in the coming week or so. The 26-year-old has gone 4-2 with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP this season.

  • Max Scherzer To Miss 6-8 Weeks With Oblique Strain

    Updating a previous report, New York Mets starting pitcher Max Scherzer (oblique) has a "moderate to high-grade" oblique strain and will miss six to eight weeks. Oblique injuries often require a lengthy absence, especially for pitchers, so fantasy managers were already preparing for an extended absence with the 37-year-old, three-time Cy Young winner. He was pulled early from his start on Wednesday against the St. Louis Cardinals with what was initially called left side discomfort. Barring setbacks, Scherzer could be back in the Mets rotation in early July. New York's rotation depth will now be tested with Jacob deGrom (shoulder) and Tylor Megill (biceps) also out. Trevor Williams will continue to work in the rotation, while David Peterson should get some starts as well.

  • Max Scherzer Dealing With Oblique Injury

    New York Mets starting pitcher Max Scherzer (oblique, finger) has an oblique injury and has also been pitching through multiple blisters on his pitching hand in his last two starts, according to manager Buck Showalter. Scherzer left his start early on Wednesday against the St. Louis Cardinals with left side discomfort. There's no official word on how long the veteran right-hander will be out, but oblique injuries for pitchers can take more than a month to recover from, so his fantasy managers should expect an extended absence. It's a big blow for the Mets rotation and Scherzer's fantasy managers, as the 37-year-old eight-time All-Star is 5-1 with a 2.54 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 11 walks and 59 strikeouts in 49 2/3 innings over eight starts in his first year in Queens.

  • Starling Marte To Be Activated Friday

    New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte is scheduled to rejoin the team on Thursday afternoon, but he won't be activated from the bereavement list until Friday. Marte should be back in the starting lineup for the series opener on Friday against the Colorado Rockies. The 33-year-old veteran is hitting .266/.311/.403 with three home runs, 20 RBI, 20 runs scored and five stolen bases in his first 33 games for the Mets. Fantasy managers should plan to get him back in their starting lineups on Friday. Mark Canha will get a second straight start in right field on Thursday, and he's batting second against St. Louis Cardinals right-hander Dakota Hudson. Canha is hitting .299 with three dingers and 14 RBI on the year and will be a fine DFS play.

  • Pete Alonso Belts Three-Run Blast

    New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso took matters into his own hands during Wednesday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The right-handed slugger went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in the 11-4 victory. His 404-foot homer in the eighth inning marked his ninth of the season. Alonso only trails C.J. Cron for the National League lead in home runs. He finished the game with four RBIs, so fantasy managers will certainly take more performances like this one.

  • Max Scherzer Dealing With Side Discomfort

    Updating a previous report, New York Mets pitcher Max Scherzer (side, oblique) exited Wednesday's start due to left side discomfort. According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, the 37-year-old's arm is fine, but the injury sounds like an oblique strain, costing players quite a bit of time. Scherzer will undergo further evaluation and undergo imaging on Thursday. The right-hander is considered day-to-day, and the Mets should have a better idea of the severity of his injury on Thursday. Scherzer allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits while striking out four over 5 2/3 innings before leaving. The Mets pitching depth has suddenly taken a hit, losing Tylor Megill (biceps) recently and now possibly Scherzer. Stay tuned for further updates.

  • Max Scherzer Exits Wednesday's Start With Apparent Injury

    New York Mets pitcher Max Scherzer was removed from Wednesday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals with an apparent injury. He walked off the mound with the trainers after just 87 pitches. During the sixth inning, the 37-year-old threw a slider in the dirt and immediately gestured to the coaching staff that he was done after that pitch. "I'm done, I'm done," said Scherzer. "Everything about his being says, 'Gut it out.' So when he doesn't gut it out, it's a little scary, said Ron Darling of SNY. It's unclear what type of injury Scherzer sustained, and he's considered day-to-day. The Mets ace allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits while striking out four over 5 2/3 innings before leaving. Stay tuned for further updates.

  • Starling Marte To Be Reactivated Thursday Or Friday

    New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte was placed on the bereavement list on Monday. According to Mets manager Buck Showalter, Marte will be back with the team "physically" on Thursday and he will officially be reactivated either Thursday or Friday. Travis Jankowski started the last two games in right field with Marte out and Mark Canha is getting the start in right field for Wednesday's game. Over 33 games this year, Marte has slashed .266/.311/.403 while racking up three home runs, five stolen bases, 20 RBI and 20 runs.

  • Brandon Nimmo Day-To-Day With Bruised Quad

    New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo (quad) has been diagnosed with a bruised right quad. According to Mets manager Buck Showalter, Nimmo is day-to-day. Nimmo suffered the injury in Game 2 of the team's doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday after he fouled a ball off of his leg. After the game, Nimmo underwent X-rays that came back negative. He stated that his availability for Wednesday's game will depend on how he feels in the morning. This is all good news for fantasy managers as it appears Nimmo may not even miss a game due to this injury. The 29-year-old is off to a great start to the year, slashing .292/.397/.458 with three home runs, 12 RBI and 20 runs over 33 games.

  • Brandon Nimmo Exits Game 2 Against Cardinals Early

    New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo (foot) was removed from Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the St. Cardinals after fouling a pitch off his foot. He went 1-for-8 with a double across both games before exiting Game 2 early. The severity of Nimmo's foot injury is unknown at this time, and he's considered day-to-day. This season, Nimmo has been solid for fantasy managers, slashing .292/.397/.458 with three home runs, 12 RBI, and 20 runs scored over 33 games in 2022. Stay tuned for further updates.

  • Starling Marte Goes On Bereavement List

    New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte was placed on the bereavement list on Monday. Marte will be away from the team for at least three days and as many as seven, so fantasy managers will want to remove him from their lineups for the week. Through his first 33 games with the Mets, Marte is hitting .266/.311/.403 with three home runs, 20 RBI, 20 runs scored and five stolen bases. With Marte out of the lineup on Tuesday against the St. Louis Cardinals, Travis Jankowski will get the start in right field and will hit eighth in the lineup against right-hander Miles Mikolas for Game 1 of a doubleheader. Jankowski is off to a good start this year with nine hits in 31 at-bats, but he's mostly useful in fantasy for his speed.

  • Jacob deGrom's MRI Shows Continued Healing

    New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom's (shoulder) MRI exam on Monday showed continued healing in his scapula. He will continue to build distance and velocity in his throwing program, but there remains no timetable for when he'll get back on a mound. It's good news for the 33-year-old two-time Cy Young winner, but fantasy managers won't really have much of an idea on when deGrom will make his season debut until he advances further into his throwing program and gets back to throwing off a mound. The right-hander will likely have to go on an extended minor league rehab assignment as well. Stay patient and continue to keep deGrom stashed on your fantasy benches.

  • Mets-Cardinals Game Postponed Monday

    The game between the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals has been postponed on Monday due to rain. It will be made up on Tuesday as part of a doubleheader, beginning at 3:10 pm. Right-hander Trevor Williams was scheduled to start on the mound for the Mets, with right-hander Miles Mikolas going for the Cardinals. They will both presumably be pushed back to Tuesday's doubleheader. Fantasy managers needs to make sure to take out any players from these two teams from their daily starting lineups for Monday's slate of games.

  • Pete Alonso Enjoying Strong Start To 2022

    New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso is once again producing at an above-average rate at the plate. After hitting .262 with a .344 on-base percentage, 37 home runs, and three stolen bases in 637 plate appearances last season, Alonso is batting .270 with a .342 on-base percentage and eight home runs in 155 plate appearances so far in the 2022 campaign. The first baseman has hit fourth in each of his starts this year for the Mets and should continue to be one of fantasy baseball's elite options at his position for the rest of the season.

  • Jacob deGrom Undergoing MRI Exam Monday

    New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom (shoulder) is scheduled for another MRI exam on Monday, his third since late March. deGrom has been throwing off flat ground, so if his MRI results are good, he could start ramping up his throwing program soon. The 33-year-old two-time Cy Young winner is working his way back from a stress reaction on his right scapula, but he's still not expected to return until around the All-Star break in the middle of July. We'll have a better idea of how his recovery is going when the MRI results are released, but fantasy managers will need to continue practicing patience before deGrom is able to make his 2022 season debut.

  • Tylor Megill's MRI Reveals No Structural Damage

    The New York Mets received the results of the MRI on starting pitcher Tylor Megill (biceps) on Sunday. The MRI showed no structure damage and he has been diagnosed with right biceps tendinitis. According to Mets beat writer Anthony DiComo, the team plans to keep Megill from throwing for a few days, allowing the inflammation to settle. After that, the team will reassess. Megill was placed on the 15-day injured list on Sunday, so he will at least be out of the rotation for the next three turns. We should have a more clear idea of his timeline sometime this next week.

  • Tylor Megill Placed On Injured List With Lat Inflammation

    The New York Mets placed starting pitcher Tylor Megill (lat) on the 15-day injured list with right lat inflammation on Sunday. Right-handed pitcher Colin Holderman was called up from Triple-A to fill Megill's roster spot. Megill is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Sunday. The results of the MRI will help indicate how long he is expected to be out for. The 26-year-old was off to a nice start to the year before being shelled by the Washington Nationals this past Wednesday. Over seven starts, he's gone 4-2 with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. Megill was scheduled to make his next start on Monday against the St. Louis Cardinals. The team has yet to announce who will take the mound in his place.

  • Chris Bassitt Strikes Out Eight In Saturday's No-Decision

    New York Mets pitcher Chris Bassitt allowed one run on five hits and three walks while striking out eight during Saturday's 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners. He did not factor into the decision. The 33-year-old escaped a first-inning jam and threw five scoreless frames until surrendering a run in the sixth inning. He threw 108 pitches, landing 68 for strikes. Bassitt has been terrific in his first season with the Mets, posting a 2.34 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 46:12 K: BB across 42 1/3 innings. On Thursday, the right-hander for his next start is scheduled to face the St. Louis Cardinals at home.

  • Edwin Diaz Picks Up Eighth Save On Saturday

    New York Mets reliever Edwin Diaz recorded his eighth save of the season on Saturday in the Mets' 5-4 win over the Mariners at Citifield. Facing his former team for the first time, Diaz struck out the side in the ninth inning. Diaz has been excellent to begin the 2022 campaign. In 15 games, Diaz has converted eight of nine save opportunities and has posted a 1.80 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and recorded 27 strikeouts in 15 innings pitched. He remains an elite relief option in all formats and should be active on all fantasy rosters.

  • Francisco Lindor Scuffling Through May

    New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor got off to a hot start in 2022, but his production has slowed significantly as the calendar has turned to May. In 46 at-bats this month, Lindor has just six hits. Two have gone for extra bases, including one home run, and he's stolen one base while striking out eleven times. He has a .233/.315/.395 slash line on the season, leaving plenty to be desired, but his five homers and four steals show just how much fantasy potential he still has if he can just find a way on base amidst this slump.

  • James McCann To Undergo Wrist Surgery

    New York Mets catcher James McCann (wrist) was diagnosed with a fracture of the hamate bone in his left wrist on Friday. He will undergo surgery for the fracture and is expected to miss about six weeks. The team placed him on the 10-day injured list on Friday and recalled catcher Patrick Mazeika from Triple-A. Tomas Nido should serve as the team's primary catcher while McCann is out with Mazeika working in a backup role.

  • Kumar Rocker To Pitch In Independent Ball

    Free-agent right-hander Kumar Rocker (elbow) will pitch for the Tri-City Valleycats of the Frontier League before the major league draft this year. Rocker was selected in the first round of last year's draft by the New York Mets out of Vanderbilt, but he went unsigned after the team had questions about his MRI exam. The 22-year-old worked out on his own during spring training and is trying to show that he's fully healthy. If Rocker doesn't have any setbacks with his right elbow while pitching for the Valleycats, he's likely to be a first-round selection for the second year in a row.

  • Starling Marte Goes Just 1-For-13 In Series Against Nationals

    New York Mets outfielder Starling Marte struggled at the plate in the team's three-game series against the Washington Nationals this week. He went just 1-for-13 with four strikeouts, no walks and a run scored. Marte started the month out strong, wrangling together a streak of five straight multi-hit games from May 2 to May 8. He's slashing .317/.333/.463 over the month of May as a whole. The 33-year-old has been decent overall for fantasy managers this year, but he's been a big disappointment in the stolen base department. He's gone just 4-for-8 on stolen base attempts over 30 games and he hasn't successfully stolen a bag since April 24. Last year, Marte led the majors with 47 stolen bases over 120 games and he was caught just five times. We'll see if he can turn things around on the base paths soon.

  • Mark Vientos Slugs Fifth Homer For Triple-A Syracuse

    New York Mets corner infield/outfield prospect Mark Vientos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday for Triple-A Syracuse. With the home run, he now has five on the season to go along with 15 RBI and a .210 batting average. Vientos has shown an increase in power as he has matured and finished 2021 with 25 home runs and 83 RBI to go along with a steady .281 batting average between Double-A and Triple-A. The 22-year-old has shown plenty of power and an ability to be a solid contributor at the dish, but he has struggled defensively as a corner infielder and outfielder. With the designated hitter now universal, that may be his best path to the big leagues. Added to the 40-man roster this past offseason, there is a true chance that Vientos could get the call at some point in 2022. For now, Vientos remains a better fit in dynasty leagues. If he were to get the call in 2022 and given at-bats, he would be worth a look in redraft leagues due to his power.

  • Mark Canha Goes Yard, Drives In Three Runs Thursday

    New York Mets outfielder Mark Canha went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, and an additional run scored in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Washington Nationals. He took Steve Cishek deep in the ninth inning for his second long ball of the season. The 33-year-old is slashing .313/.376/.398 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 10 runs over 24 games in 2022. Canha continues to be a solid option for fantasy managers in 2022 and should be rostered in all league formats.

  • Max Scherzer To Start Series Opener Against Mariners Friday

    New York Mets starting pitcher Max Scherzer will pitch the series opener against the Seattle Mariners on Friday, followed by Chris Bassitt on Saturday. Scherzer was handed his first loss of the season last Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies, when he gave up three runs on 10 hits while striking out seven and walking none in six innings. Despite the loss, the 37-year-old ace has been strong through his first six starts for the Mets, posting a 2.92 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP while fanning 49 and walking nine in 37 innings pitched. Fantasy managers need to keep him in their starting lineups for his next home outing against Seattle to kick off the weekend.

  • Eduardo Escobar Not Playing Thursday

    New York Mets third baseman Eduardo Escobar is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Washington Nationals. Escobar could use a day of rest, as he has just one extra-base hit and is batting .205 in his first nine games in the month of May to drop his season slash line to .216/.326/.342 with one home run and seven RBI in 30 games played. Fantasy managers may want to keep the 33-year-old on their benches until he shows some signs of life at the plate. Luis Guillorme will get the start at the hot corner and will hit eighth on Thursday against Nationals right-hander Joan Adon. Guillorme has only three career home runs in 197 games played in five major league seasons, so DFS gamers should be able to find better options at third base.

  • James McCann Out With Sore Wrist

    New York Mets catcher James McCann (wrist) is dealing with a sore left wrist, which is why he's not in the lineup on Thursday against the Washington Nationals. According to manager Buck Showalter, McCann's injury is "manageable," and he should be back in the lineup on Friday. It's the second straight day that the 31-year-old has been on the bench. With McCann out again, Tomas Nido will do the catching and is hitting ninth on Thursday against Nationals right-hander Joan Adon. McCann is off to a rough start in his second year with the Mets, hitting just .196 with one home run, six RBI, five runs scored and one stolen base in his first 21 games. You can find better DFS catching options than Nido on Thursday.

  • Brett Baty Hits Second Home Run For Double-A Binghamton

    New York Mets third base prospect Brett Baty went 3-for-4 with three runs, one walk and a two-run home run for Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday. It was just the second home run of the year for the Mets first round pick in 2019. Despite the lack of power in early showing this season, Baty is hitting .283 with 11 doubles and eight RBI through 99 at-bats. The biggest issue for the third baseman in his young career is the fact that he hits a lot of balls on the ground, but that is a matter that the Mets are hoping will straighten out as Baty develops. For now, Baty remains a few years away from contributing at the big-league level and will continue to work on his craft. He is only a name for managers in dynasty leagues to keep tabs on at the moment.

  • Alex Ramirez Enjoys Big Week At Single-A

    New York Mets outfield prospect Alex Ramirez has impressed against a strong group of competition. Currently playing in just his second pro season, the outfielder has above-average speed and should stick in center field, but if he can't, he'll have no trouble succeeding in right field thanks to his strong arm. Ramirez has also demonstrated an above-average hit tool, and he's a streak of homers away from being a legitimate five-tool player. Born in 2003, Ramirez excelled at the Single-A level this past week. He went 15-for-28 with five extra-base hits and five RBI. Although there is still quite a long time before he reaches the majors, Ramirez's well-roundedness makes him a potential fantasy star someday. He's currently listed sixth among MLB Pipeline's Mets prospects, three years removed from signing a $2 million international deal.

  • Jacob deGrom Throwing From 60 Feet

    New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom (shoulder) recently started throwing and has extended to 60 feet at light intensity. He will undergo further imaging on his right scapula in roughly a week. The Mets moved deGrom to the 60-day injured list earlier in the day, and although he'll be eligible to return in early June, it's his return timetable could stretch into July. The 33-year-old was diagnosed with a stress reaction of his right scapula on April 1, but fantasy managers have to at least be a little encouraged by the fact that he has resumed throwing. The two-time Cy Young winner must remain stashed in all fantasy leagues, as he could go back to being a fantasy ace immediately when he makes his 2022 season debut.

    The New York Mets transferred starting pitcher Jacob deGrom (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day injured list on Tuesday. In a corresponding move, the team claimed left-hander Lock St. John off waivers from the Chicago Cubs. It's a procedural move, as the two-time Cy Young winner is expected to be out through the All-Star break in July. He was diagnosed with a stress reaction of his right scapula on April 1, and he hasn't resumed baseball activities more than five weeks later. Fantasy managers should have a better idea of deGrom's actually timetable for a return once he starts a throwing program. Until then, all you can do is be patient and stash one of the best pitchers in baseball.

  • Max Scherzer Hit Hard By Phillies In Two Straight

    New York Mets starting pitcher Max Scherzer faced the Philadelphia Phillies in each of his last two starts. He wound up going 1-1 with a quality start over the two-game stretch, but he gave up a lot of hits, including some big ones. In his first outing, he was tagged for three home runs and a total of four earned runs over six innings. In the second outing, he allowed a season-high 10 hits over six innings while being charged with three earned runs. On the bright side, he recorded 16 strikeouts over the two games and gave away only one free pass. The 37-year-old veteran still has fantastic season-long numbers with a 4-1 record to go along with a 2.92 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP. His next start will be on Saturday against the Seattle Mariners.
