Mets' Lucas Duda: Expects to return in couple of days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duda downplayed the severity of the back issue that caused him to receive cortisone shots in his hips Friday and has kept him off the field since Wednesday, The New York Daily News reports. "I feel great. Just a spasm in my back, I guess," Duda said Sunday morning. "We'll take a few days now, instead of taking two weeks down the road. Just being cautious. In a couple days, I should be ready to go."

The slugger's optimism is nice to hear, but until Duda's swinging a bat again, fantasy players in early drafts will need to be cautious in adding him to their rosters after back trouble limited him to just seven home runs in 47 games in 2016. There's certainly upside here, given the 57 total homers he blasted the two seasons prior -- just make sure the risk is properly priced in before you take the plunge.

Mets' Lucas Duda: Receives injections in both hips
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Duda (back) received two cortisone injections in each of his hips Saturday, James Wagner of the New York Times reports.

Duda sat out Thursday's and Friday's team activities (including the Grapefruit League opener) due to a stiff back and now it appears that he's dealing with soreness in his hips as well. It's currently unclear if the 31-year-old is simply dealing with standard soreness or if it's something more concerning. He's considered day-to-day for now.

Mets' Lucas Duda: Dealing with back stiffness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duda took Thursday off after his back stiffened up following batting practice Wednesday, The New York Daily News reports. "No problems with it really," Duda said. "I am fine."

He didn't play in Friday's Grapefruit League opener against the Red Sox and, despite Duda's assurances, any issues with his back this spring are going to raise some red flags for fantasy owners after his rough 2016 season. He's still got plenty of time before Opening Day to show that he's 100 percent, but if the back problems linger through March, be prepared to drop him in your rankings.

Mets' Lucas Duda: Healthy to begin spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duda crushed a long home run during batting practice Tuesday, and appears to be fully recovered from last season's back issues, The New York Post reports.

With free agency looming next offseason, the 31-year-old slugger has every incentive to put together a big campaign, but staying healthy remains Duda's top priority. He also suggested that the core strengthening exercises he's been doing as part of his rehab have improved his power at the plate, a scary thought for opposition pitchers given the 57 homers he hit in 2014-15 before the stress fracture he suffered in his back last May hindered his stroke.

Mets' Lucas Duda: Agrees to one-year deal to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Duda agreed to a one-year, $7.25 million contract with the Mets on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The 30-year-old slugger got a slight bump in pay for 2017 despite playing in just 47 contests last season due to a back issue. Duda did smack 57 home runs over the two seasons prior and posted an OPS over .800 in both campaigns, giving him a track record to point to in negotiations. He should start against righties this year, with Wilmer Flores serving as the first baseman against left-handed pitching.
