Brandon Nimmo went a perfect 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a triple, a walk and two runs scored to lead the Mets to a 5-0 win over the Brewers on Thursday.

A four-hit night in any fashion is impressive, but none of Nimmo's three extra-base hits were cheap, all three ripped into right field in varying fashions. His fourth hit, an infield single, showed he's got some wheels, too, and it marked the eighth consecutive plate appearance in which Nimmo reached base. That's his forte -- he's got a .450 on-base percentage to go with a .294 average and .541 slugging percentage following Thursday's game -- and he's forcing his way into an everyday role as a result. It's not terribly sexy for standard mixed leagues, but deeper leagues and ones that account for OBP are leagues in which Nimmo should be owned quickly, if not already.

Ryan Braun (back) went 1-for-4 with a single in his return Thursday against the Mets.

Braun missed 10 days with middle back tightness and was activated in time for Thursday's contest. He didn't do much, but neither did his teammates as they were shut out by Steven Matz and company. With first baseman Jesus Aguilar mashing and Christian Yelich and Lorenzo Cain locked into two of the outfield spots, it looks like Braun and Domingo Santana will share time in the other corner outfield spot until one or the other takes hold of the job, or the situation is worked out by a trade or injury. That's not ideal for any of the parties involved, or their respective fantasy owners, and it's a situation to monitor closely.

Devin Mesoraco went 2-for-5 with an RBI double in a win over the Brewers on Thursday.

Mesoraco capped the Mets' scoring with the RBI double to left in the seventh inning. He added a single in the game. The Mesoraco-Matt Harvey trade was a fascinating one for all parties involved, and since joining the Mets the 29-year-old has seven hits in 35 at-bats, a .200 average, but with three homers, six RBI and eight runs scored. If he's available in deeper single-catcher leagues or any two-catcher leagues, there are plenty of worse options at the fantasy wasteland that is the catcher position.

Alex Reyes registered 13 strikeouts over seven shutout frames Thursday in a rehab start for Triple-A Memphis.

It was another incredible effort from the 23-year-old, who allowed just one hit in the victory. Reyes has dominated his rehab, logging a perfect 0.00 ERA with 44 strikeouts over 23 minor league innings. The right-hander's return to St. Louis is imminent. It took him roughly 14 months to recover from Tommy John surgery.
May 24 - 11:54 PM

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run double and scored a run in Thursday's win over the Brewers.

Cabrera doubled in a pair of runs and came around to score on a Wilmer Flores single in the fifth inning, extending the Mets' lead. It was Cabrera's only hit in five at-bats. The 32-year-old infielder is quietly having a very good year offensively through the first two months, hitting .307/.351/.523 with seven homers, 29 RBI and 26 runs scored, and should be in the mix for an MI spot or possibly even a starting second base gig in deeper fantasy leagues.
May 24 - 11:53 PM

Zach Davies allowed four runs on six hits over four innings against the Mets in his return to the rotation Thursday.

Davies gave up six hits and walked two in his first start in close to a month. The right-hander fell to 2-4 with a 4.74 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with the loss. He's never going to be one to strike out a ton of batters or fire seven scoreless innings, but Davies has been serviceable for the Brewers and should be better than he was Thursday. That said, it's still not much to look at for fantasy purposes, and a start against the Cardinals on Tuesday doesn't offer much streaming appeal, either.
May 24 - 11:49 PM

Steven Matz tossed six shutout innings in a win over the Brewers on Thursday.

Matz gave up four hits and walked three but never gave in, turning in his first scoreless outing of the year to improve to 2-3. With the good turn, the left-hander owns a 3.80 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in nine starts. A start against the division-leading Braves is on tap for Tuesday.
May 24 - 11:38 PM

Danny Duffy kept the Rangers to one run on four hits over 7 2/3 innings in an 8-2 win Thursday.

Not much has gone right for the southpaw this year, but he found a groove against the Texas club, only allowing a run on his 113th pitch of the night. Duffy walked two and struck out five before exiting. Even with the strong outing, Duffy is just 2-6 with a 6.14 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 11 starts overall. That's not useable in fantasy leagues, and we'll need to see more than one good game to recommend inserting the 29-year-old back into your lineups. Pay attention to how he fares Tuesday against the Twins.
