No Timetable For Yoenis Cespedes

New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes (ankle) continues to rehab from his injuries the past year, and general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said it's "too early to tell" if Cespedes will play in 2020. "I don't have enough information to predict when he's going to be back." He didn't play at all in 2019 and had a combined 119 games the previous two seasons. Cespedes has some intriguing pop with the lumber when he's healthy, but he's become completely unreliable to the Mets and fantasy owners. Until we know more on his rehab condition, he's off the fantasy radar heading into 2020 spring drafts.

Robert Gsellman, Seth Lugo Could Enter Rotation

New York Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said that relief pitchers Robert Gsellman and/or Seth Lugo could be shifted to starting roles in 2020 with Zack Wheeler potentially moving on in free agency. Lugo and Gsellman have both been more effective in relief, but both could be effective streamers in the right matchups in deeper leagues if they're starting for New York next season. Gsellman notably failed in a starting role several years ago, which could make Lugo the better candidate to join the rotation. We'll have to wait and see in spring training how the Mets approach their rotation.

Mets Decline Juan Lagares' Option

The New York Mets declined the option for outfielder Juan Lagares, ending his 13-year run with the team and making him a free agent. Lagares' option was worth $9.5 million, but they'll instead pay him a $500,000 buyout. The 30-year-old has become a glove-first player in the big leagues, but he's become injury-prone and averaged just 68 games a season from 2016-18. Lagares was a disappointment with the bat in 2019, hitting .213 with a .605 OPS in 133 games. He's unlikely to return to the team on a major league deal and won't even be attractive in single-universe leagues if he resurfaces elsewhere in 2020.

Mets Won't Be Trading Noah Syndergaard, Edwin Diaz

New York Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said that the team definitely won't be trading starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard or closer Edwin Diaz in the offseason. The Mets plan on contending next year and beyond, so it wouldn't make sense to trade one of their best pitchers and best relievers. Thor posted a career-worst 4.28 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 9.2 K/9 in 197 2/3 innings (32 starts) in 2019. However, he still remains one of the more dominant starters in the game and makes an excellent one-two punch with Jacob deGrom. Diaz was one of the best closers (real life and fantasy) last year with Seattle, but he had a bad first year in New York, going 2-7 with a 5.59 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 26 saves in 66 outings (58 innings). There's certainly bounce-back potential next year, where he'll be a value pick as a closer.

Jeff McNeil Undergoes Surgery On Wrist

New York Mets infielder/outfielder Jeff McNeil (wrist) had surgery on Wednesday to fix a fractured bone in his right wrist. McNeil finished fourth in the National League with a .318 average and should be ready well in advance of spring training next year. On top of the impressive average, he slugged 23 home runs, scored 83 runs, drove in 75 and stole five bases in 510 at-bats. McNeil will has earned regular playing time by hitting .321/.383/.513 with 26 home runs, 94 RBI and 12 steals in 196 games for the Mets the last two years. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues again in 2020.
