Thanks, Yahoo, for finally getting around to DL’ing him.

Blame the Mets for waiting till the last possible second to DL him.  Unfortunately we got the news after my lineups locked in my weekly leagues. This is why I argue with my commish in a league about putting players on Disabled List before the "Official" DL designation, Alot of teams wait till the last second to make these moves even though it's obvious what they plan on doing with the player.

Does Bruce move to 1B and Gonzalez moves to the bench? 

 

Does Nimmo sit?

 

Just trying to figure out where Conforto immediately slots in, or if he's going to be rotating/platooning to start. Might make sense to ease him in, but assuming he shows he's healthy I figure he's absolutely an everyday player.

I've read they're playing him in CF, presumably to keep playing Gonzo/Flores at 1B.  

 

That's probably how it initially breaks down, but the battle for PT will be between Nimmo and that 1B platoon.  IMO Nimmo offers them a better CF than Conforto, and a true leadoff guy, but I'm not sure the Mets will see it that way.

This guy is an absolute stud and should not have been ranked so far down. They may sit him a bit considering they have a good bench and want to ease him back in but it he stays healthy there shouldn't be any reason why he's not playing every day. He's easily their second best hitter and could potentially challenge Cespedes as their top hitter.  Excited to have him back.

Hope he stays healthy all year- he's a monster. Mets are such a different team with him in the lineup

Read Bruce won't be going to 1B though, anyone understand the logic of that?

 

So we'll have to expect regular rest days, especially early on. Just hope after a while he becomes a regular and we don't have to worry about him being out the lineup.

Pretty accurate statement.  The dude still cant hit lefties so I imagine they will give him most days off against them.
