Mets News: Mets going to play Duda at 1B against Reds and Beyond?According to ESPN's team insiders, The Mets plan to use Lucas Duda at First base during the Cincinnati Reds Series and possibly beyond that.
The Mets do not face any left-handers against the Cincinnati Reds or Atlanta Braves the next two series, so it is an opportune time, since Josh Satin would not be used anyway.
The Mets will have the DH after that in Anaheim. You can assume they play both Duda and Ike Davis in the lineup with Duda DH'ing...
Duda told ESPN he had not been informed of any such decision.
Duda started his first game of the season in Thursday's 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals and went 0-for-3 with a walk. He is 0-for-6 with a walk and three strikeouts for the season, having appeared in all three games.
