2016 RECAP

Record: 87 - 75

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Afforded a chance when Dillon Gee was disabled, Jacob deGrom took advantage and waltzed away with the NL Rookie of the Year, boosting a plethora of fantasy teams in the process. Another injury, this one to Bobby Parnell opened the door for Jenrry Mejia to finally find his niche as he saved 28 games. Offensively, with first base all to himself, Lucas Duda broke through with a 30 homer campaign while Travis d’Arnaud provided a glimpse of what should be a productive sophomore campaign.

What Has Changed?

Matt Harvey’s return from Tommy John surgery is much anticipated. Michael Cuddyer was brought in to stabilize an outfield that has been playing musical left fielders for the past several years. Citing that the majority of their rotation are fly ball pitchers, the Mets’ brass claim they’re comfortable with Wilmer Flores at shortstop.

What to Expect:

The Metropolitans have some nice pieces but probably not enough to make a serious run. Much will depend on their promising pitching with Harvey’s return front and center. Beware, the team is likely to limit his innings in the event they make the playoffs. The right field fence in Citi Field was moved in again so Duda has a chance to again challenge the 30 HR mark. Curtis Granderson may benefit as well.

This Year’s Surprise:

Catchers often take a few years to hit their offensive stride but d’Arnaud has the look of a fast learner. Most promising is a very good contact rate which should keep his floor at a reasonable level while his power develops. This is a future top-ten fantasy catcher.
