Fantasy Impact: The 6-7 month timeline makes Peterson extremely unlikely for Opening Day in 2024. The left-hander largely scuffled in 27 appearances (21 starts) with the Mets in 2023, posting a 5.03 ERA and 3-8 record across 111 innings of work.

Fantasy Impact: Ottavino finished the 2023 season with a 3.21 ERA and 62 strikeouts over 61 2/3 innings pitched. The 37-year-old would be a solid addition to any team looking for middle relief help and in need of depth to bolster their bullpen.

The New York Mets have claimed relief pitcher Penn Murfee off waivers from the Seattle Mariners. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Murfee is likely out for the first half of the 2024 season after undergoing UCL surgery in June. However, the Mets are taking a flyer on the right-hander who tossed a sterling 1.29 ERA in 16 appearances for the Mariners prior to his injury while he owns a 2.70 ERA across 83 1/3 innings in parts of two MLB seasons.

Pete Alonso went 5-for-8 with a homer, two doubles, two RBI, and four runs scored in Wednesday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: Alonso delivered a stat-stuffing day for fantasy managers Wednesday, as the Mets split a doubleheader with the Marlins. The All-Star slugger's stat line on the year now includes 46 homers, 117 RBI, and 91 runs despite a gross .222 AVG across 150 games.

Kodai Senga Strikes Out Eight

Thu, Sep 28th 10:09am EDT
By Nate Miller

Kodai Senga had a solid outing against the Marlins on Wednesday, striking out eight batters over five innings of work.

Fantasy Impact: Despite allowing three hits and three walks, Senga limited the damage to just two earned runs. Although he didn't earn the win, Senga's strong strikeout numbers continue to make him a valuable fantasy asset. With a 2.98 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and an impressive 10.9 K/9 rate on the season, Senga has proven to be a reliable option for fantasy managers.

Joey Lucchesi allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three across six innings in Wednesday's 11-2 win over the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: Lucchesi improved to 4-0 on the year with his effort in the top half of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Marlins. Lucchesi wraps up his 2023 campaign in impressive fashion, posting a 1.93 ERA across 18 2/3 innings over his final three outings. He has certainly made a play to be a part of the Mets', or another team's, rotation in 2024.

Despite allowing 3 earned runs over 6 innings, Megill showcased his ability to miss bats with 6 strikeouts, maintaining a respectable 7.3 K/9 for the season.

Fantasy Impact: While his 4.92 ERA and 1.62 WHIP leave something to be desired, Megill's strikeout potential and ability to limit walks make him an intriguing fantasy option moving forward.

Mets catcher Francisco Alvarez is back in the starting lineup Thursday versus the Phillies. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Alvarez didn't start Wednesday's 8-3 win over the Marlins but will return to take on Phillies lefty Ranger Suarez on Thursday. While he's hitting just .215 on the season, the young backstop has displayed impressive power with 23 home runs across 400 plate appearances.

Mets outfielder DJ Stewart is not in the starting lineup Thursday versus the Phillies. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: The Mets are looking to stack right-handed bats against Phillies lefty Ranger Suarez on Thursday, leaving the lefty-swinging Stewart on the bench to start. He has been a big addition for the Mets as Stewart is hitting .264 with 11 homers and an .899 OPS across 50 games played.

Mark Vientos Goes Deep Twice

By Nate Miller

Mark Vientos launched two solo home runs Wednesday to help the Mets secure an 8-3 victory over the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: Vientos, who has struggled at the plate this season with a .226 batting average, showed off his power with his seventh and eighth homers of the year. Despite his low average, Vientos has displayed some pop with five doubles and a triple to go along with his home runs. While his strikeout rate of 29.6% is a concern, his ability to drive in runs could make him an intriguing option in deeper fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Guillorme got the start at second base on Monday but went hitless and grounded into a double play as part of his three at-bats on the night. He has struggled at the plate this season, hitting .231 with one homer and a .633 OPS across 117 plate appearances.

Edwin Diaz (knee) will officially not return from the IL to pitch this season. (Source: Anthony DiComo on X)

Fantasy Impact: Diaz has been progressing well and will continue to throw bullpen sessions through the end of September. It seems that if the Mets were competing for a playoff spot, there may have been a chance Diaz would have returned sooner than later. However, the Mets will play it safe with their closer and ensure he is ready to go for the start of the 2024 season.

The left-hander has largely struggled in the big leagues with a career 5.60 ERA across 41 appearances (seven starts) spanning only 82 innings of work.
