New York Mets

NL East

Jake Marisnick was traded to the Mets in exchange for two minor leaguers on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Marisnick could see a larger role for the Mets after appearing in only 120 games for a crowded Houston outfield. He slashed .233/.289/.411 with 10 home runs, 34 RBI and 10 stolen bases across 310 plate appearances. If Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) is unable to return in 2020, Marisnick should see extra at-bats and is worth a flyer in mixed-league formats.

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen says the team will not be trading Noah Syndergaard this off-season. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: New York has flirted with the idea of trading Thor before but has never gotten the right offer. With the team now ready to contend it wouldn't make sense for them to trade away their number-two starter. Syndergaard is currently under team control through 2021.

The BBWAA announced Wednesday that Jacob deGrom is the 2019 National League Cy Young award winner. (Source: BBWAA on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: deGrom received 29-of-30 first place votes to win his second straight Cy Young award. The 31-year-old was simply fantastic this season, posting a 2.43 ERA, a 0.97 WHIP, and 255 strikeouts in 204 innings pitched. He'll be a very early fantasy draft pick come 2020.

The BBWAA announced Monday that Pete Alonso is the 2019 National League Rookie of the Year. (Source: BBWAA on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Alonso received 29-of-30 first place votes. Mike Soroka got the other. The 24-year-old Alonso surprisingly broke camp with the Mets to begin the year and instantly hit the ground running. In 161 games he hit .260 with a whopping 53 homers and 120 RBI. The slugging first baseman won't come cheap in fantasy drafts next spring.

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen says that Seth Lugo is a candidate for the Mets’ rotation in 2020. (Source: Tim Healey on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: As is Robert Gsellman. Both pitchers began the 2019 season as multi-inning relievers. Lugo eventually served as the team’s closer for a bit as well. If New York can get him stretched out in spring training Lugo could flirt with streamer status entering next year.

Mets starter Steven Matz tossed six shutout innings in Saturday's win over the Atlanta Braves, allowing two hits and five walks while striking out seven. The win brought him to 11-10.

Fantasy Impact: Matz had allowed 13 runs over his previous two starts coming into Saturday, but he was able to close out the season strong in a win over the Braves. He finishes the year with a 4.21 ERA and 153 strikeouts over 160 1/3 innings.

Category: Game Recaps

Mets starter Zack Wheeler allowed three earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 over eight innings in a loss to the Miami Marlins on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Wheeler finished the season strong by tossing four straight quality starts and allowing just six earned runs over his final 29 innings to lower his ERA to 3.96.

Category: Game Recaps

Mets utility man Jeff McNeil suffered a fractured right wrist after being hit by a pitch in Wednesday's win over the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Impact: With only a few games left, McNeil is obviously done for the rest of the season. He finishes an excellent year with a .320 batting average, 83 runs scored, 23 home runs, 75 RBI, and five stolen bases through 133 games.

Category: Game Recaps

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.

Category: Game Recaps

Mets shortstop Amed Rosario went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Monday's loss to the Miami Marlins. The homer was his 15th of the year.

Fantasy Impact: Rosario has now homered three times in his last six games as he looks to finish strong in what has already been an impressive season for the young shortstop.

Category: Game Recaps

Mets starter Marcus Stroman allowed two earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two over 4 2/3 innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Reds.

Fantasy Impact: Stroman was reportedly dealing with nausea on Sunday but pitched through the sickness to nearly complete five innings of work. The Mets went on to win despite Stroman's short outing, and he will take on the Braves at home in his last start of the season.

Category: Game Recaps

Mets outfielder J.D. Davis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Dodgers. The homer was his 19th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Davis continues to carve out a role for himself in New York by simply producing seemingly every time he is called upon. Through 371 at-bats, he is batting .307 with 58 runs scored, 19 home runs, 52 RBI, and three stolen bases.

Category: Game Recaps

Mets second baseman Robinson Cano went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks. The homer was his 13th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Cano has now hit in four straight games, with two home runs during that span. He is available in more than 50% of leagues and could be a decent waiver-wire pickup heading into the final couple of weeks of the season.

Category: Game Recaps

Mets third baseman Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks. The homers were his 19th and 20th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Frazier has been relegated to part time duty for most of the season but recently has been providing power when called upon. He is hard to rely on head-to-head leagues in the playoffs right now, except for deeper or NL-only leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Mets catcher Wilson Ramos went 3-for-4 with a home run, a walk, three RBI, and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Phillies. The homer was his 14th of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Ramos hit .434 in August and is batting .335 in the second half after batting .272 in the first half of the season. He got off to a slow start but is once again one of the better contributors in fantasy at the catcher position.

Category: Game Recaps

Mets reliever Edwin Diaz allowed two earned runs on two hits and no walks while striking out three over an inning of work against the Phillies on Friday. He suffered his seventh blown save of the season but was able to escape with the win.

Fantasy Impact: Diaz allowed a two-run home run to Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto in the top of the ninth inning, but the Mets were able to walk off with the win in the bottom half of the inning. Diaz has had an awful season and now has a 5.88 ERA to go with his seven blown saves.

Brandon Nimmo (neck) was activated off the 60-day injured list Sunday. (Source: New York Mets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Nimmo finished a 10-game rehab stint with Syracuse on Friday and join the big league club for the series finale. He is expected to come off the bench. Nimmo has been out since May with a bulging disc in his neck and struggled with a .200/.344/.323 slash line in 43 games prior to his injury.

The Mets designated Aaron Altherr for assignment on Saturday. (Source: Steve Gelbs on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Category: Transactions

Mets pitcher Walker Lockett allowed four earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Lockett was recalled from the minors as the 26th man for Monday's doubleheader, and he is likely to head back to the minor leagues tomorrow. He has a 7.79 ERA on the season through four starts.

Category: Game Recaps

Jason Vargas and cash was traded from the Mets to the Phillies in exchange for Austin Bossart. (Source: Tim Healy on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Vargas is coming off three wins in a row and will give the Phillies added depth to the rotation. He will presumably take up a spot in the back of the Phillies rotation, though it’s not clear if he will replace Drew Smylyl, Vince Velasquez, or Zach Eflin. Vargas owns a 4.01 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, with 81 strikeouts in 94 1/3 innings this season.
