FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: METS TO BE IN ON YULIESKI GURRIEL

The New York Mets reportedly plan to make a run at Cuban free agent third baseman Yulieski Gurriel according to CBS' Jon Heyman.  With David Wright likely done for 2016 and maybe beyond due to neck surgery/spinal stenosis, Gurriel would fill a major void for the team. 

Analysis:  Makes total sense as the Mets only have to pony up cash and no prospects to get Gurriel.  He will likely need three week or so in the minors to get his timing down at the dish but Gurriel has been said to carry big power and a solid bat average-wise.  Still for as good as Jose Abreu has been, recent busts like Alex Guerero, Yasiel Puig, Yasmany Tomas, and Rusney Castillo make it far from a sure thing Gurriel will carry fantasy baseball value.
