Description: Mets 1B/OF Lucas Duda went yard again Friday against the Giants.
Insight: Duda is locked in at the plate and daily fantasy owners should be taking advantage. He's hit six home runs in his last nine games and is up to 20 homers and 61 RBI on the year.
 
Hot7/30/2014 3:54:00 PM
Description: Mets 1B/OF Lucas Duda went deep again Wednesday against the Phillies.
Insight: That makes five home runs in his last eight games and 19 on the season to go with 60 RBI and an .864 OPS. Duda walked in 14.3 percent of his plate appearances last year but he may have been too patient. He's become more aggressive this season and he's lowered his strikeout rate from 26.6 percent to 21.4 percent.
 
7/29/2014 4:12:00 PM
Description: Mets 1B/OF Lucas Duda is just 1-for-13 (.077) with seven strikeouts versus Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels.
Insight: Duda has 18 home runs (three in six games) to go with 57 RBI on the season. He's hitting just .260 but has reached base at a .358 clip and slugged .498. Too bad this matchup must be avoided. Update: Duda is not in the starting lineup.

Description: Mets 1B/OF Lucas Duda has homered in three of the past four games.
Insight: Duda launched his 17th homer and drove in two runs Friday at Milwaukee. He's hitting .260 with 53 RBI and an .855 OPS, making the Mets' decision to jettison Ike Davis in favor of him look smart.

Description: Mets 1B/OF Lucas Duda is 3-for-8 (.375) with a home run versus Cincinnati starter Johnny Cueto.

8/24/2013 6:19:00 PM
Description: The Mets called up left fielder Lucas Duda from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.
Insight: He was out with an intercostal strain. Before starting Saturday against the Tigers, Duda's last major league appearance came on June 21st against the Phillies. Fantasy owners can expect decent power numbers from Duda but also lots of strikeouts.
 
8/7/2013 9:16:00 PM
Description: The Mets activated left fielder Lucas Duda from the DL on Wednesday but then immediately sent him down to Triple-A Las Vegas.
Insight: It's a tough break for Duda who had 11 HR in 68 games before suffering an intercostal injury in late June. Eric Young Jr. (.257, 2 HR, 19 RBI, 23 SB) will continue to be the Mets' everyday left fielder.
 
7/18/2013 11:50:00 AM
Description: New York left fielder Lucas Duda (strained left intercostal) had still not swung a bat through last weekend.
Insight: Duda is hitting .235 this season with 11 HR and 23 RBI in 68 games. We're looking at a late July or early August return.
 
6/23/2013 4:26:00 PM

Description: Mets 1B/LF Lucas Duda will have an MRI on his left side in what may end up being an oblique injury.
Insight: Duda is batting .237, but with some power- 11 homers and a .793 OPS. More importantly, if he is forced to the sidelines, the Mets would likely bring Ike Davis back from Las Vegas.
 
6/21/2013 2:18:00 PM
Description: Mets 1B/LF Lucas Duda is a lifetime 1-for-12 with seven strikeouts against Phillies starter Cole Hamels.
Insight: Duda is batting .237, but with some power- 11 homers and a .793 OPS. This matchup, however, is not for fantasy owners.
 
6/18/2013 10:11:00 AM
