Alejandro De Aza
LF,CF - FA
De Aza continues to provide some punch to the New York Mets offense. Batting sixth in the lineup, he went 1-for-5 with a double, a run scored and two RBI.
With Jay Bruce struggling, De Aza could get a few more starts. Although his season average of .195 isn't appealing, he has stayed productive in his last few games. He has scored five runs with seven RBIs in his last four. He's worth a punt as a platoon play in DFS.
De Aza didn't get the start in the 9-4 New York Mets win over the Philadelphia Phillies. He did come in as a pinch hitter, drawing a walk and scoring a run.
Although De Aza's .194 season average isn't great, he has built some momentum in the past three games. He has scored four runs and had that big homerun in St. Louis. If he gets a start against a rightie, he's worth a punt consideration in DFS.
De Aza carried the New York Mets offense. He finished 2-for-5 with a three-run homerun off starter Adam Wainright. He also contributed two runs, five RBI, and one walk.
Congratulations are in order for anyone who hit the De Aza sweepstakes in DFS. This output came out of nowhere, as Aza has been hitting .111 in the last seven days. For the season, he has a paltry .196 average with just five homeruns.
De Aza finished 1-for-4 with a big three-run homerun against pitcher Jake Peavy. He also struck out once.
This game was Aza's first start since August 16. With Curtis Granderson struggling to make contact with his bat, Aza could get a few more starts as the season unwinds. He's still not worth a consideration in most fantasy formats.
De Aza got the start at center for the New York Mets. He ended the game 0-for-4 with three strikeouts, dropping his 2016 average to .188.
With Cespedes out, the Mets don't have anyone productive to play at center. De Aza has been awful in his last seven days, hitting a paltry .067 with only two walks and one hit. He should be left in the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues.
