New York Mets

NL East


Pete Alonso went 2-7 across both games of the doubleheader with a single, home run, run scored, two RBIs, and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Alonso leads the majors in average exit velocity, but he's slashing .222/.293/.444 because he strikes out in 36.6% of his at-bats. Home runs are nice, but it's hard for managers to be encouraged when he strikes out five times in one day. Alonso has a career 26.3% k-rate, so he's certainly capable of improvement.

Joey Lucchesi allowed three earned runs on four hits, zero walks, and three strikeouts over three innings.

Fantasy Impact: Lucchesi generated 12 swings and misses on 55 pitches, allowed four hard-hit balls, and topped out at 92.6 MPH. He's scheduled to face the Nationals in his next start.

Edwin Diaz pitched a scoreless seventh inning, striking out the side in game one on Saturday.

Jacob deGrom allowed three unearned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out fourteen batters in six innings.

Fantasy Impact: deGrom generated 27 swings and misses, allowed three hard-hit balls, and topped out at 100.8 MPH. He threw four pitches over 100 MPH in this game, which is a season-low.

Fantasy Impact: Davis winds up missing the minimum 10 days. Even better, due to all the Mets rainouts he only wound up missing six games. Jose Peraza was optioned to the alternate site as a corresponding move.

Jeff McNeil went 1-3 with one single and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: McNeil is struggling in the early going, but it's due to a .150 BABIP. He's cut down on his strikeouts and increased his walks this season compared to career averages. Fantasy managers need to be patient with McNeil.

Francisco Lindor went 2-4 with two singles, one walk, and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Lindor is off to a slow start this season with zero home runs and zero stolen bases through nine games. Fantasy managers should be encouraged by Lindor's early-season plate discipline - he's walked (eight times) more than he's struck out (twice). And part of the problem is bad luck (.231 BABIP vs. .298 career average).

James McCann went 3-4 with one home run, two singles, one run scored, and two RBIs as the Mets beat the Phillies 5-1.

Fantasy Impact: McCann had two hard-hit balls in the contest. His home run traveled 392 feet. This season, McCann is OPSing .733 and has cut his strikeout rate by ~27% compared to his career average. He's replacement-level in standard redraft leagues.

David Peterson allowed three hits and one earned run on ten strikeouts and zero walks through six innings.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson was great for the Mets on Wednesday. The only damage against him came on a Jean Segura home run. He generated nine swings and misses, topped out at 96.5 MPH, and allowed five hard-hit balls. He's got a sparkling 7.50 K/BB ratio and 2.42 xFIP through ten innings this season. He'll get the Cubs next time out and is on the streaming radar.

Fantasy Impact: Betances, who was placed on the injured list due to shoulder impingement, will not be activated when eligible Sunday. The right-hander has yet to resume throwing and remains without a timetable. Betances allowed one run in the sole inning pitched in this year.

Michael Conforto (hand) is playing right field and hitting sixth in Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Conforto took a pitch off the wrist in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader. He didn't play in the nightcap but X-rays came back negative, so he's back in there tonight. It appears as if fantasy managers avoided anything serious here.

Brandon Nimmo went 0-2 with two walks, one run scored, and two strikeouts in game one. And 3-4 with three singles, three RBIs, and one strikeout in game two.

Fantasy Impact: Nimmo is off to a great start at the top of the Mets lineup. But his .435 batting average is propped up by a .625 BABIP.

Dominic Smith went 1-4 with two RBIs, one run scored, and one strikeout in game one. And 0-4 with two strikeouts in game two.

Fantasy Impact: Smith's home run traveled 399 feet. He's been struggling to get on base and striking out too much but is still slugging a respectable .522 this season

Taijuan Walker allowed three hits, three walks, and one earned run as the Mets beat the Phillies 4-3 in extra innings.

Fantasy Impact: Walker threw 81 pitches before being removed from the game. He allowed two hard-hit balls, generated 12 swings and misses, and topped out at 96.9 MPH. He has a date with the Rockies in Coors next time out. Walker has a 3.29 xFIP and 2.40 K/BB ratio in 10 1/3 IP this season.

Mets pitcher Carlos Carrasco will fly soon to the Mets' alternate site in Brooklyn to begin doing fielding work. (Source: Anthony DiComo on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Carrasco is stretched out to four innings on the mound and doing very well, according to Mets manager Luis Rojas. He is working his way back from a torn right hamstring after being placed on the 10-day injured list at the beginning of the season.

Kevin Pillar pinch-hit for Jacob deGrom in the bottom of the eighth inning. He was robbed of a hit by a diving Miguel Rojas.

Fantasy Impact: Pillar's line drive had an exit velocity of 107.8 MPH and an xBA of .830. It should have been a single.

Jonathan Villar went 3-5 with one single, one double, one triple, one run scored, and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Villar was great at his first start of the season. He was filling in for Jeff McNeil, who had a routine day off. The Mets have many moving pieces on offense, one of whom is Villar, so he's going to need to build on Wednesday's performance to earn consistent at-bats.

The Mets informed RHP Robert Gsellman that he made the Opening Day roster. (Source: Mike Puma on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gsellman will operate out of the bullpen to begin the year, which means he doesn't carry much fantasy value. He will likely function between middle and long relief to start out.
