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

Insight: The two sides were able to avoid arbitration. Duda bounced between Triple-A and the majors last season. He's a straight power hitter with a very low contact rate (.246 career average in 1,104 major league at bats).
 
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.

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

Insight: Duda was hitting just .226 coming into Monday's game; the performance raised his average to .241. He has a solid .802 OPS with 11 homers and 33 walks, but he has driven in just 23 runs in 216 at-bats.
 
6/9/2013 11:24:00 AM
Description: New York left fielder Lucas Duda won't be in the lineup on Sunday.
Insight: Duda went 1-for-7 with two walks and four strikeouts Saturday in a 20-inning loss to Miami. His power numbers are strong (10 HR, 11 2B in 192 at bats) but his contact rate needs to improve (58 K's, .229 AVG).
 
6/8/2013 11:32:00 AM
Description: Mets outfielder Lucas Duda is in Saturday's starting lineup. He's missed some time due to tightness in his quad.

6/6/2013 5:36:00 PM
Description: Mets outfielder Lucas Duda is not in the starting lineup Thursday due to tightness in his quad, according to Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal.
Insight: Duda is hitting .232 with 10 homers, 20 RBI and a .792 OPS this season. The outfielder is only hitting .186 against left-handers, and the injury at least allows him to avoid Gio Gonzalez.
 
6/4/2013 10:08:00 AM
Description: Mets outfielder Lucas Duda is just 2-for-12 with five strikeouts against Washington right-hander Jordan Zimmermann.
Insight: Duda is producing power (10 HR, .814 OPS), but doesn't hit for as high average (.239). This matchup isn't likely to help any category.
 
4/28/2013 9:49:00 AM
Description: Mets left fielder Lucas Duda is a candidate to sit on Sunday as he's just 1-for-10 with six strikeout in his matchups with Philadelphia left-hander Cole Hamels.
