Mets Player Performance Meter Week 11: Hitters


Helped in large part by its 17-run performance in Chicago, the Mets' offense has averaged 4.52 runs per game this season. That's the fourth-best mark in the National League, trailing only the Rockies, Cardinals, and Braves.

Player Last Week This Week Comment
Mike Baxter, OF There haven't been any significant updates on Baxter, who is still recovering from his no-hitter-saving catch.
Jason Bay, LF Bay rode a bike on Wednesday and felt fine, but he's still a little ways away from returning.
Ronny Cedeno, SS Cedeno picked up where he left off before his stint on the DL, getting on base at a much higher clip than he ever did before this year.
Ike Davis, 1B Although he made plenty of outs, Ike hit 3 HR and slugged .818.
Lucas Duda, RF The Dude had a rare down week in an otherwise very good offensive season.
Scott Hairston, OF It's tough to have a bad week that includes a grand slam, but Hairston did.
Daniel Murphy, 2B The Irish Hammer is back! Murphy put up a 1.178 OPS.
Mike Nickeas, C Give credit when it's due: Nickeas had a .900 OPS in 12 plate appearances.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, OF At least Kirk's lone hit of the week was a dinger.
Vinny Rottino, OF Rottino drew a walk in one of his final two plate appearances with the Mets. He is now with the Cleveland Indians after they claimed him off waivers.
Omar Quintanilla, SS In limited playing time, Quintanilla produced at the plate.
Ruben Tejada, SS Tejada hasn't hit much since coming back from the DL.
Josh Thole, C Eric noted Thole's struggles at the plate since he returned from his concussion, but he got on base at a .389 clip over this stretch.
Andres Torres, OF Torres didn't hit for average or power but had a .409 OBP. That'll work.
Justin Turner, IF Turner hit .308 but also had a .308 OBP.
Jordany Valdespin, IF Jordany didn't hit much and got sent back to Buffalo with the returns of Cedeno and Tejada.
David Wright, 3B Wright hit .385/.419/.615 this week. Ho-hum.

This week's meter covers games from June 21 through 28.
