Fantasy Impact: Having recently sent Michael Conforto, Brandon Nimmo, and Jeff McNeil to the IL, the Mets need warm bodies in the outfield. Kemp was hitting .200/.210/.283 with a -0.8 fWAR in 20 games before getting cast aside by the Reds, so he's likely just organizational depth who could at most receive some reps against lefties down the road. He's no more than a deep-league add if ever promoted.

The Mets and Ervin Santana have reached an agreement on a minor league deal. (Source: Mets on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Santana will head to the minors to build his arm strength back up to where it would need to be to be considered for the major league club. Prior to signing with the Mets, Santana was shelled in three starts with the White Sox before being released. While it's a low-cost investment that doesn't hurt a major league franchise, it doesn't appear likely that Santana will return to fantasy relevance in 2019.
