FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWS: METS INK OOUTFIELDER MICHAEL CUDDYER TO TWO-YEAR DEAL WORTH $20 MILLION

By Michael Wong

Phoenix, AZ.--The New York Mets of all teams reeled in the first free agent fish of the offseason, signing outfielder Michael Cuddyer to a two-year deal worth $20 million.  Cuddyer was signed to be the outfield bat with power that the Mets were looking for and his long friendship with David Wright reportedly helped move the process along.  Cuddyer hit only 10 home runs last season in an injury-marred campaign with the Colorado Rockies as he spent three separate stints on the DL with shoulder and hamstring problems.

Analysis:  Moving from one of the best hitting parks in the game in Coors Field to one of the worst in Citi Field will greatly hurt Cuddyer's fantasy baseball numbers for 2015.  While Cuddyer hit .330 during each of his two seasons in Colorado, he is likely to be a .280 guy with the Mets and replicate his old Minnesota Twins numbers.
