Reds surge in ninth to wrap up Queens sweep of Mets
Brandon Phillips bounced a bizarre double over first base to snap a ninth-inning tie, and the Cincinnati Reds completed a three-game sweep of the struggling New York Mets with a 7-4 victory Wednesday.
Reds top Mets in Cueto's return from disabled list
Jay Bruce hit a tiebreaking homer and drove in two runs to back Johnny Cueto's wild but effective return from the disabled list, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the New York Mets 4-3 Monday night.
|Rick Ankiel endured the worst campaign of his career since giving up pitching last season. He saw some decent playing time for the Nationals early on in the year and batted .275 with a .425 slugging percentage in his first 25 games. Ankiel would struggle after that, however, and was released in late July after hitting just .228 with five home runs and 15 RBI in 158 at-bats. While there were some rumors that the left-hander might return to the mound this offseason, he ended up signing a minor-league deal with the Astros and will vie for playing time in the outfield during spring training. Houston does not have a ton of experience in the outfield and Ankiel could land a starting job with a solid camp, so keep an eye on the situation. The 33-year-old will only be worth owning in Fantasy with regular at-bats in 2013. If that happens, target Ankiel in deeper AL-only formats on Draft Day. (Updated 1/23/13)|
