Fantasy Impact: Syndergaard was visited by trainers and then appeared to limp off the mound while grabbing at his right hamstring. He had allowed three earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five prior to exiting. Look for an update on his status later this evening or on Sunday.

Mets first baseman Pete Alonso went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks, and two runs scored in Friday's loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Mets starter Steven Matz allowed three earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Matz now has a 3.93 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and 72 strikeouts over 68 2/3 innings on the season and is a solid back-of-the-rotation arm in fantasy leagues. He has quality starts in four of his last five starts and is currently scheduled to take on the Braves in Atlanta in his next start.

Mets outfielder Michael Conforto went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The game is currently suspended at 4-4 in the ninth inning and is scheduled to be completed on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Conforto has three home runs in the last week and three multiple-hit performances in his last five games as he continues to heat up at the plate. He is now hitting .258 with 13 home runs, 37 runs scored, 32 RBIs, and four stolen bases.

Mets closer Edwin Diaz allowed two earned runs on two hits and one walk while striking out one over one inning to blow the save in Thursday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The game was suspended in the ninth inning at 4-4 and is scheduled to be completed on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Diaz now has a 3.38 ERA on the season, which is solid for a starting pitcher but not what teams and fantasy owners are looking for in a closer. He does have 14 saves 44 strikeouts over 26 2/3 innings, however, and remains one of the more valuable fantasy relievers.

Mets starter Jacob deGrom allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out eight over seven innings in a no-decision against the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday. The game was suspended in the ninth inning at 4-4 and is scheduled to be completed on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: deGrom has now thrown three consecutive quality starts and four in his last five outings as he continues to round into form after a rocky start to the season. He now has a 3.38 ERA and 102 strikeouts over 82 2/3 innings. His next start is scheduled to come against the Braves in Atlanta.

Mets outfielder J.D. Davis went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the New York Yankees. The homer was his seventh of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Davis is having a solid year, but playing time has been hard to come by for the corner infielder/outfielder, limiting his fantasy value for the time being.

Mets outfielder Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the New York Yankees. The homer was his third of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Gomez is batting just .227 on the year but has now homered twice in his last three games to raise his batting average up from .182.

Jeff McNeil went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the New York Yankees. The homer was his third of the season.

Fantasy Impact: McNeil has picked up right where he left off before landing on the injured list, and he is batting an impressive .338 on the year while continuing to hold down the leadoff spot in the New York lineup.

Mets starter Jason Vargas allowed three earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings in Tuesday’s win over the New York Yankees. The win brings him to 3-3 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Despite coming off of a shutout against the San Francisco Giants, many Vargas owners likely avoided his start in Yankee Stadium on Tuesday and thus lost out on the quality start and the win. The veteran lefty continues to pitch well for the Mets, having tossed three consecutive quality starts while allowing just four earned runs over 23 innings. His next start is scheduled to come against the Braves in Atlanta.

Mets starter Zack Wheeler allowed nine runs (five earned) on 10 hits and one walk while striking out six over 4.2 innings in a loss to the New York Yankees on Tuesday. The loss drops him to 5-4 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: While his strikeout numbers are still solid, Wheeler has allowed at least three earned runs in six straight starts, allowing four or more runs in three of them. His ERA is now 4.87 to go with 99 strikeouts over 88 2/3 innings. He will look to bounce back in his next start against the St. Louis Cardinals at home.

Fantasy Impact: Cano returned from the injured list earlier this week, but sustained an injury to his quad just four innings after his return. Jeff McNeil will handle the keystone again on Saturday.

Mets first baseman/outfielder Dom Smith went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Giants. The home was his fourth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: As a part-time player right now, Smith's value is limited to DFS contests and leagues with deeper rosters where owners can play matchups and utilize him when he is in the lineup.

Mets third baseman Todd Frazier went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the San Francisco Giants. The homer was his fifth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: At this point in his career, Frazier is only valuable in deeper NL-only leagues as he will provide some occasional power but not much else.

Mets shortstop Amed Rosario went 1-for-3 with a home run in Thursday's win over the San Francisco Giants. The homer was his eighth of the season and second in as many days.

Fantasy Impact: Rosario led off on Thursday and rewarded the Mets with a home run, although he was pulled for a pinch hitter later in the game.

Mets catcher Wilson Ramos went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the San Francisco Giants. The homer was his seventh of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Ramos has now homered in two straight games and seems to be heating up again after a bit of a slump in May.

Fantasy Impact: Nimmo added that it has not yet been discussed whether or not he will need to play in minor league rehab games. The young outfielder has dealt with this neck issue since April.

Mets reliever Robert Gsellman walked on in a scoreless ninth inning to earn his first save of the season in Friday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact: Gsellman got a late-inning look with Jeurys Familia and closer Edwin Diaz both unavailable. He had allowed at least one earned run in four straight appearances but answered the call on Friday. As long as Diaz and Familia remain healthy, Gsellman will not likely see many save opportunities going forward.

Mets infielder Adeiny Hechavarria went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run in Monday's loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The homer was his third of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Hechavarria has now homered in back-to-back games and three times in his last four games as he continues to fill in for the injured Robinson Cano. A veteran known for his glove but not for his bat, this kind of production is not likely to continue.

Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes underwent surgery today and is expected to miss the rest of the season, according to a report from Joel Sherman of the New York Post. The team did not immediately announce what kind of procedure the outfielder underwent. (Source: Joel Sherman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cespedes had already missed nearly the first two months of the season as he recovered from heel injuries, and it was reported earlier this week that he suffered ankle fractures in an accident on his ranch in Florida. The outfielder is under contract for $29,500,000 with the Mets in 2020.
