Jose Iglesias delivered a perfect day at the plate, going 4-for-4 with two runs scored in the Mets' 8-5 loss to the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: This performance boosts his season batting average to an impressive .380, continuing his trend of high-contact, low-strikeout outings. Iglesias's ability to consistently put the ball in play, evidenced by his minimal strikeout rate and solid BABIP, makes him a valuable asset in fantasy leagues that reward batting average and on-base percentage. While his lack of power and speed limits his ceiling, his knack for collecting hits and scoring runs can provide steady, if unspectacular, fantasy value.

Pete Alonso went 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in the Mets' 8-5 loss to the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: While Alonso managed to connect for his 19th homer of the season, his overall batting average remains a concern at .240. Despite the power display, his inconsistency at the plate could be troubling for fantasy managers relying on him for more than just home runs and RBI.

Tyrone Taylor is in the starting lineup for the Mets Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Taylor will patrol right field and bat seventh in the series finale with the Rockies. He is hitting .227, with five home runs, and 23 RBI this season.


Ben Gamel is out of the starting lineup for the Mets Sunday.

Christian Scott had a shaky outing, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over 4 1/3 innings in Saturday's 7-3 victory against the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the Mets securing the win, Scott's performance was less than stellar, failing to provide a deep outing which has been a recurring theme this season. His ERA slightly increased to 4.36, and while his WHIP remains commendable at 1.11, his inability to pitch deeper into games limits his fantasy appeal. The 7.3 K/9 rate is mediocre, and although his FIP suggests some bad luck, fantasy managers should be cautious. Scott remains a risky play in most formats, primarily useful in deeper leagues or as a streaming option against less formidable offenses.

Francisco Lindor went 1-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, a run scored, and a stolen base in the Mets' 7-3 victory over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: His performance included drawing two walks and striking out once, showcasing his ability to contribute in multiple facets of the game. Lindor's season has been a mix of moderate power and speed, as evidenced by his 17 homers and 18 stolen bases through 94 games. His .250 batting average and .335 wOBA suggest he remains a valuable middle infield option in fantasy leagues, particularly given his knack for driving in runs and scoring. His consistent stolen base totals also add a dimension of value, making him a solid all-around asset for fantasy managers looking for balanced production.

Sean Manaea delivered a solid outing on Friday, allowing three earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out nine over seven innings in the Mets' 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: This performance underscores Manaea's ability to maintain control and rack up strikeouts, even when not completely shutting down the opposition. His season ERA now sits at a respectable 3.46, complemented by a WHIP of 1.21 and a strong 9.0 K/9 rate. Manaea's consistent strikeout ability and decent control make him a valuable asset in fantasy leagues, particularly in categories that reward strikeouts and innings pitched. His ability to limit base runners and manage games effectively should keep him relevant in fantasy rotations, especially in deeper leagues.

Edwin Diaz walked two but managed to keep the Rockies scoreless to notch his 10th save in the Mets' 7-6 win on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Despite a rocky outing that saw him issue a pair of walks, Diaz did enough to secure the victory, though not without causing some heart palpitations among fantasy managers. His season ERA of 4.05 and WHIP of 1.16, coupled with a high strikeout rate of 12.5 K/9, continue to make him a valuable, albeit sometimes volatile, asset in fantasy leagues. The high number of blown saves (5) this season does raise concerns, but his ability to strike out batters at an impressive clip keeps him relevant in all formats. Diaz's performance in high-pressure situations remains a watchpoint, but his role as the Mets' closer should keep him rostered in most leagues.

Mark Vientos went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, and two RBI in the Mets' 7-6 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: His performance today highlighted his growing reliability as a power hitter, now boasting a .299 average with 12 homers and 33 RBI through 49 games. Vientos's ability to contribute significantly without striking out, as seen in today's game, enhances his fantasy value, especially in leagues that penalize strikeouts. With a solid .393 wOBA, he continues to be a valuable asset for fantasy managers looking for consistent production. His ongoing development and knack for timely hitting should keep him relevant in fantasy lineups, particularly in formats that reward extra-base hits and RBI.
