Michael Conforto (oblique) taking regular BP, encouraged by progress

Mike Puma of the New York Post writes that Michael Conforto (oblique) has been taking regular batting practice.

Fantasy Impact

Puma adds that team officials are "encouraged by his progress". Conforto suffered a Grade 1 oblique strain back in early March and might have been ready for the season even if things had started on time. If the season gets started at any point this summer fantasy players can feel confident that Conforto will be ready.

Michael Conforto (oblique) might not be ready by Opening Day

Michael Conforto strained his right oblique on Saturday after catching a fly ball. When asked about Conforto's status, Mets General Manager Brodie Van Wagenen said "We'll see how he responds in the coming days, and then as we evaluate his game readiness next week," Van Wagenen said. "I'm sure we'll have more information at that point in time."

Fantasy Impact

It was reported that Conforto's oblique strain was mild and is expected to resume baseball activities as early as next week. Consider Conforto day-to-day and his status for Opening Day in doubt. The Mets could play it safe and have Conforto start the season on the injured list. Fantasy owners should continue to monitor the situation and hope he can return to the field soon. The 27-year old outfielder slashed 257/.363/.494 with 33 homers, 92 RBI, 90 runs and seven stolen bases across 648 plate appearances in 2019.

Michael Conforto diagnosed with right oblique strain

Michael Conforto's MRI revealed a right oblique strain, according to Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.

Fantasy Impact

Van Wagenen added that it's "too early to know" if Opening Day is in question for Conforto, but considering that the Mets are likely to be extremely cautious with one of the key cogs in their lineup, it's a good bet that Conforto will open the season on the injured list. Don't knock him too far down your draft boards, however, as the average time for an oblique strain is around a month, so Conforto will likely be back in early April. Jake Marisnick and Dominic Smith are likely to see additional time with Conforto sidelined.

Michael Conforto (side) headed to New York for further evaluation after MRI

Mets outfielder Michael Conforto is headed to New York to meet with the team's medical director after injuring his side while making a catch in the outfield. He received an MRI in Florida but needs to be evaluated further, according to a report from Mets beat writer Tim Healey.

Fantasy Impact

That Conforto is heading for further evaluation after an initial MRI is not ideal. More information will likely become available in the next few days after he is able to meet with team physician Dr. David Altchek. Side and oblique injuries can sometimes linger, especially for hitters known for their power. Monitor Conforto's status this week and expect him to at least miss the beginning of the regular season until we learn otherwise.

Michael Conforto hits two more home runs Tuesday

Mets outfielder Michael Conforto went 3-for-4 with two home runs, four RBI, and a walk in Monday's extra-innings win over the Marlins. The two homers give him 33 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

Conforto now has three home runs in his last three games, and his second homer on Tuesday was a game-tying shot in the bottom of the ninth to push the game into extras.
