CF,RF - FA
The Mets designated Aaron Altherr for assignment on Saturday.
Altherr has hit just .082 this season with the Giants, Phillies, and Mets. New York activated Jeff McNeil (hamstring) off the IL as the corresponding move.
Aaron Altherr got subbed in during the seventh inning and made manager Gabe Kapler look like a genius. Altherr continued his recent success by going 2-for-2 with a run scored.
Altherr has been showing a lot of potentials and can be worth a look in keeper leagues. With the unpredictability of the Phillies starting lineup staying the same throughout the game, it is tough to view Altherr as anything more as a guy to hold onto for the future.
Aaron Altherr went 4-for-5 with three runs, five RBI, and two home runs in Friday night's win over the Marlins.
Altherr finally showed the Phillies what he is capable of doing, gaining four hits and two home runs Friday night. This was a surprise for Altherr, so make sure to monitor how he plays as the season winds down for DFS.
Aaron Altherr came in to pinch-hit with two men on in the 10th inning and knocked them in with a double to win the game against the Cardinals.
It's hard to roster Altherr who isn't getting enough playing time, especially with the hot-hitting Nick Williams on the squad.
