Mets Player Performance Meter: Hitters, Week 8

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

A review of the Mets' hitters over the past seven days.

Despite a 126 wRC+ that ranked fifth in Major League Baseball over the last seven days, the Mets scored just 19 runs—tied for the sixth-worst total in the game. While several hitters were very good, a couple were the polar opposite. The Mets have struggled in one-run games, which makes the timing of their offensive woes lately all the more frustrating.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Bobby Abreu, OF In limited playing time, Abreu had a .944 OPS for the week, which helps atone for his lack of defensive prowess in the outfield.
Eric Campbell, 1B Everyone’s favorite soup didn’t hit much, but he did have a .462 slugging percentage for the week.
Juan Centeno, C He might not have had any extra base hits or drawn any walks, but Centeno hit .375 for the week.
Travis d’Arnaud, C d’Arnaud started a rehab assignment and sounds like he’ll be back with the Mets in a matter of days after spending time on the disabled list with a concussion. Huzzah!
Lucas Duda, 1B The Mets’ worst regular hitter for the week, Duda had just a .368 OPS. He’s probably better than he has looked lately.
Wilmer Flores, SS There were no big problems here, but Flores’s .633 OPS was nothing special, even for a shortstop.
Curtis Granderson, RF Granderson hit an outstanding .381/.500/.762 for the week, one of the Mets’ better single-week hitting performance of the season. He’s had an excellent May.
Juan Lagares, CF He’s still had a very good season so far, but Lagares was a little light with the bat this week.
Daniel Murphy, 2B Murphy cooled off in a big way, as his .248 wOBA and 55 wRC+ on the week was one of the worst in the Mets’ lineup.
Anthony Recker, C Recker was a wrecking ball this week—the Mets’ third-best regular hitter by wRC+.
Ruben Tejada, SS He didn’t play much, but Tejada managed a .900 OPS in a tiny sample.
David Wright, 3B With a .522 wOBA for the week—.480/.519/.680, if you’d prefer just the slash line—Wright was in true TRAID form for the first time in a while, a sight for sore eyes.
Chris Young, OF Young had a respectable .353 on-base percentage but hit just .154 and seemed to not come through at the worst possible moments.
Eric Young Jr., OF Young managed a .429 OBP and swiped a couple of bases, though he now finds himself on the disabled list with a hamstring injury.
